On my way to Pinetop, we stopped at Becker Butte Lookout. The mountain's were breath taking, and seeing them in person made it a special feeling. I was shock seeing the mountain's and got to escape reality for a while. I captured the moment to be reminded of how I felt in the moment.

The early morning of the Raptor Free Flight, enjoying the beauty and the wind brushing through the wind to share your experience with the native birds releasing into the wild. An amazing reminder of how nature will always be mysterious yet a miracle.

I found a bush of yellow flowers in the desert with small orange flowers mixed in. I thought they looked pretty so I got a close up of it.
