What do YOU love most about your significant other? That may be a tough one. I love my husband’s humor! We are ALWAYS laughing and we’re both on the same wave length. Love him. 💛

Happy Weekend Folks! Since we’re not in the desert and will be instead working on our bathroom reno, tell me where you are?! Then when I’m whistling while I’m working, I can imagine myself in your shoes instead. 😜 #saguaronationalpark #saguaro #saguarocactus #arizona #tuscon #findyourpark #optoutside #rvliving #rvlife #rvfamily #makingmemories #wildandfreekids #rvlifewithkids #travelfamily #travelfam #familieswhotravel #raisingtravelers #weraom #wanderers #lifeiswhatyoumakeofit #tusconarizona #cactus

Any chance I can get to knock another National Park off the list, I take advantage of it. This time, I hit @saguaronationalpark in Tucson, AZ. I chose the East side of the park because it has an 8-mile driving loop (little time and a healing foot). The Park is split into two areas, separated by the city of Tucson. It’s a beautiful Park, with an incredible backdrop of the Santa Catalina Mountains. #saguaronationalpark #cactus #tucson #arizona #findyourpark

SAGUARO 9 2011 I loved photographing these ancient, sculptural giants. 🌵 Visiting @saguaronationalpark was like walking into a Doctor Seuss book! There are all kinds of strange and weird looking plants, and do I need to say there was a lot of texture in those cactus?! That texture seemed to jump out at us. By the end of the day we had prickly things all over our shoes and clothes. I was only there for a day and regretted that I didn’t have time to stay longer. There are so many photographic opportunities in that strange environment that I definitely want to return. . . . . #saguaronationalpark #saguaro #clydebutcher #largeformatcamera #arizona_landscapes #filmphotoshare

We did our last big trek with Goldie. Through the desert heat and into the snow. Rain and shine. Whenever the three of us are together, wherever we are... it’s always home. 🏡 🚌🏕 . #vanlife #nationalparks #saguaronationalpark #roadtrip #RLYLILY

Road Trip Day 3: Tucson, AZ. Sunset was 5:20 so We drove in and went straight to Saguaro National Park East aka Rincon Mountain District. Its a nice scenic loop and there’s lots of trails to park and hike. We stayed until dark and then found our super cool Airbnb Pam booked and picked up some sandwiches from a ridiculously good spot really close to us. Pam and I got up early and did a pretty challenging and really fun scenic sunrise hike. We have unfinished business with Saguaro NP West, good food, and lots more hikes. #roadtrip #roadtripusa #familytime #familyroadtrip #roadtrippin #saguaronationalpark #saguaro #cactus #goprohero7black #gopro #travel #explore #wander #wanderlust

Pretty cool to have palm trees in your back yard one day, and cactus the next. How will we ever decide where to settle down? #nomadsforlife

Saguaro national Park. An Incredible memory during a trip around West USA parks with my daughter. Just before to Go to Tucson city, we decided to stop there and watch sunset above the Park. Castus trees bacame like shadows In the night. And flowers of cactus delivered all their perfume. #photographer #instaphoto #instagood #saguaro #photography #usa #saguaronationalparkeast #saguaronationalpark #souslavouteceleste #travel #travelphotography #traveler #travelgram #trip #trekking #cactus #flowers #nationalpark #newmexico #tucson #desert #photo #saguaros #park #landscape #landscapelovers #sunset #sunshine #america #tourism #tourism

I've been thinking about the desert a lot recently. I had the opportunity to explore the Sonoran Desert in Tuscon, AZ last year and it was magical. It was not the small desert towns that captured me but, the openness of creation. Vast skylines chased by infinite stretches of land. Saguaro cactus pepper the landscape and give some of it's only color. What would appear to be barren is full of life in the sense that life may become full there. The unobstructed night sky felt so close it was as if I could stand on my hands and my feet would land among stars. It felt more wild than any forest I have explored, not covered by tree, leaf, or cloud. You are vulnerable, and with that vulnerability comes a trust and intimacy you need to survive the desert. . . . The Sonoran Desert is incredibly diverse and probably one of the most unique places on the planet. In one day I went from sandy, cactus laden land to the peak of a snow covered mountain. . . "Sonora" is available now. This large clear quartz is faced with a deep green aventurine, a tall labradorite saguaro stands firmly atop, reaching into the night sky adorned with a silver moonstone moon. . . . #sonora #sonorandesert #desert #wilderness #saguaronationalpark #saguaro #cactus #labradorite #moonstone #aventurine #green #labradoritejewelry #moon #crystal #quartz #copper #electroforming #electroformed #handmade #handmadejewelry #pendant #statement #copperjewelry #silvermoonstone #adventure #tuscon

Day 174: Hiking to Wasson Peak. We decided to hit Saguaro National Park hard in our final morning, catching the 8+, 1,800 ft+ hiking loop of Wasson Peak. This loop uses much of the Kong’s Canyon Trail, a very popular portion of the west wise of the national park. Proud to say both of us must have clearly improved our hiking legs a bit through this journey, as what should have been a tougher hike for us ended up being mostly moderate and deeply rewarding. The views to, on, and from the peak are particularly beautiful here, as the thousands of Saguaro cacti stood by to cheer us on. I happened to catch a roadrunner darting across our trail, as Erin captured many exceptional pictures of our loop back. This was our final “big” hike of our Serenity tour, and I have to admit I had a lot of mixed feelings these last fees days as we both realized just how soon we’d be rolling back into San Diego. Very ready and excited to be home, but the list of “this will be the last _______ of our trip” realizations have definitely been surreal. As we drove toward Phoenix, we saw our first interstate sign showing us the way back to San Diego... three more days! As we slid into Phoenix, we spent a really fantastic evening with Cait and Jeff, Cait is Erin’s childhood friend and it was a great pleasure to meet both of them over beers at PHX Brewing. Oh! And we finally had our SECOND Wal-Matt parking lot stay this night... who woulda seen that coming? #hiking #mountains #saguaronationalpark #vanlife #travel #phoenix
