phoenix mountains

I made a quick trip to Phoenix last week. It was not for pleasure, but there was some time to enjoy the beauty of the area! I felt at one with nature in the dessert, looking at the mountains, breathing in the dry air (good thing I had my essential cleanser and travel mist, or the dry air would have wreaked havoc on my complexion!)

Kicking off my shoes and basking in the sun, I was at one with nature! What zen!

It’s fitting that Phoenix, Arizona is named for the mythical bird of regeneration. As I said, this wasn’t a vacation, but I still left feeling rejuvenated. I hope I get to return to this lovely city soon–for a real vacation this time!

I got to enjoy the beautiful view from the mountains by night. Breathtaking!
