The Sonoran Desert is a North American desert which covers large parts of the Southwestern United States in Arizona, California, Northwest Mexico in Sonora, Baja California, and Baja California Sur.

The Grand Canyon is justifiably world-famous for its jaw-dropping scenery and is considered one of the seven wonders of the natural world. This trip of a lifetime will be made all the more memorable by the knowledge that every step will raise much needed funds to improve the lives of young people who are living with cancer. After flying out to Phoenix, Arizona, we spend the second day getting used to the terrain. After driving through the Sonoran Desert and arriving in Sedona, we’ll be walking along Oak Creek Canyon before heading to Flagstaff (which lies on the historic Route 66!) for the night. The main challenge begins on day three when we go to our trailhead at Hualapai Hilltop, where we begin the descent into the Grand Canyon. We’ll be heading towards Supai, the centre of the Havasupai Indian Reservation and the most remote village in mainland USA. The trail goes steeply down from the crater rim, roughly 3,000 feet, and then we’ll follow the river bed into Supai, which will be our home for 3 n ...

Miraval, a destination spa in the Sonoran Desert, is on the path to its best year ever.
So I am planning a trip down to Arizona/New Mexico/Southern Cali. And want to know places I should stop and visit. So far depending on my route I will see Las Vegas, Grand Canyon NP the Sonoran Desert, Joshua Tree NP, Slab City/Salvation Mountain, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Alcatraz, Hollywood. Anywhere else people would recommend? Time is limited, but I want to see as much as possible.
14.5 miles out on a crisp day in the Sonoran Desert on the new Cycle! Had to shout at a dude not paying attention in a truck at an interesction - I have a WHOLE new respect for paying attention on the road!!!
Was sad to say goodbye to Texas. After we left San Antonio we went back into camping mode and enjoyed the simple pleasures of driving through state parks fringed with impressive mountain ranges [near Big Bend National Park], the kids loved making a fire at night and watching the sun set around it’s warmth, and even enjoyed a swim in the largest spring fed pool in the world. Our visit to New Mexico was very brief and we stayed in the Pancho Villa park-named after the bandit who raided the town-after spending the day in Mexico proper. “Snow Falling on Cactus” has been the title of our last few days in South-east Arizona. This has created a beautiful landscape but a very cold RV to sleep in. Thankfully, we arrived at our friend Connie’s house just in time for some “inside” time. Highlights of this state [so far] have been exploring the wonderful Sonoran Desert- decorated with Saguaro Cacti , Hanging out in Tombstone and watching the Wild West on the stage, walking the beautiful Madeira Cany ...
Exploring the Sonoran Desert National Monument near Gila Bend. This is some of the most beautiful Sonoran Desert you will find anywhere. Very clean and the views are crystal clear. I did stumble upon some illegal leftovers. But that is common in this area. It's a heavily used route. Hikes up this hill for a geocache and some views and checked out some old gravesides below. Cool area.
HONORING ONE OF OUR STAFF LOAL JACOBSON, What a great WRANGLER! The next time you're ready to saddle up for a horseback ride through the high Sonoran Desert, head over to The Corral here at Rancho De Los Caballeros for a guided trail ride led by one of our seasoned wranglers like Loal Jacobson. Loal has been a wrangler at Rancho de los Caballeros for 28 seasons and keeps coming back year after year because he loves what he does. Born in Idaho, Loal spent much of his life in Jackson, WY, but eventually sought warmer weather after braving far too many frigid winters in the mountains. His search for warmer temperatures led him to Arizona, but it was positive word-of-mouth from friends that led him to Rancho de los Caballeros. Since then, Loal has been a key fixture in The Corral, looking after the horses and taking guests on guided trail rides through the Ranch's 20,000 acres of Sonoran Desert. This year marks an impressive milestone as Loal turned 90 years old on January 9th. Friends and family gathered tog ...
We get all our annual rain in three days out here in the northern end of the Sonoran Desert...today is one of them. Rain here is like a blizzard in Boston -- accidents everywhere, no one goes out, etc. So it looks like I'll get a chance to start watching Downton Abbey, which has been sitting in my Netflix queue.I hear it is a good period piece.

Naming the people who die in the desert It's the job of a forensics team in Arizona to identify the bodies of migrants found in the desert. Anthropologist Robin Reineke describes how she pieces together the sad jigsaw puzzle of personal attributes and belongings. There are many ways to enter the US. The way that's taken by the very poorest is to come through the Sonoran Desert on foot. It's a very forbidding place - the temperatures in the summertime are regularly in the triple digits and there's no water. Groups of people will walk for three to five days, travelling by night and drinking out of cattle troughs or whatever they can find. It's unlikely they will see other people for the duration of the trip. At present, Tucson, Arizona has almost 800 unidentified bodies of migrants who didn't make it to the other side. They were found by border patrol, by citizens of the Tohono O'odham Indian reservation, or by ranchers or hikers. I compare these unidentified remains to lists we have of missing persons, col ...
The Mojave’ Artists Studio has been named after the desert region, called the (Mojave Desert). The Mojave desert occupies a significant portion of southeastern California and smaller parts of central California, southern Nevada, southwestern Utah and northwestern Arizona, in the United States. Named after the Mohave tribe of Native Americans, it displays typical basin and range topography.The Mojave Desert's boundaries are generally defined by the presence of Yucca brevifolia (Joshua trees); considered an indicator species for this desert. Since the studio is located on the edge of the Mojave desert, the Joshua tree is represented as the logo for Mojave’ Artists Studio. The Great Basin shrub steppe lies to the north; the warmer Sonoran Desert (the Low Desert) lies to the south and east.The Mojave Desert receives less than 13 in (330 mm) of rain a year and is generally between 2,000 and 5,000 feet (610 and 1,500 m) in elevation.

Sensible Products For The Four Fingers of Death: A Novel - An Update Montese Crandall is a downtrodden writer whose rare collection of baseball cards won't sustain him, financially or emotionally, through the grave illness of his wife. Luckily, he swindles himself a job churning out a novelization of the 2025 remake of a 1963 horror classic, The Crawling Hand. Crandall tells therein of the United States, in a bid to regain global eminence, launching at last its doomed manned mission to the desolation of Mars. Three space pods with nine Americans on board travel three months, expecting to spend three years as the planet's first colonists. When a secret mission to retrieve a flesh-eating bacterium for use in bio-warfare is uncovered, mayhem ensues. Only a lonely human arm (missing its middle finger) returns to earth, crash-landing in the vast Sonoran Desert of Arizona. The arm may hold the secret to reanimation or it may simply be an infectious killing machine. In the ensuing days, it crawls through the hea ...

We had a full house...YIPEE...and Phil, the sound/lighting technicial was amazing as well as the entire staff at the center. Compliments go out to Chris, director of the center, TJ (volunteer coordinator), the volunteers, George (assisted in setting up CD table and just being unbelievably welcoming). Special thanks goes out to the Sonoran Desert Center for Spiritual Living who showed up with 29 people and my friend Joyce who bought with her 12 friends. The audience was packed, the show was a mixture of jazz, broadway and Mike's zany songs. We have been asked to come back next year on Thursday, December 5th. I love performing in venues like this. The audience was so receptive and loving. THANKS EVERYONE for making it a remarkable evening. Love to all!

The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain has introduced two new experiences for its younger guests, with both offerings inspired by the resort’s year-round spirit of adventure. The two offerings lend especially colorful new meaning to the concepts of “roughing it” and “interning.” First, the 850-acre spa, golf and adventure property has announced In-Room Camping for children visiting with their friends and families. This new children’s amenity will do away with the traditional rollaway bed sometimes brought into guest accommodations shared by families, and it will replace that rollaway or bed-share with an in-room tent large enough to become a private home-away-from-home for younger guests. In-Room Camping will feature Ritz-Carlton tent delivery to the family’s guest room, tent set-up, a s’mores kit for the young tent occupant, an educational book about Arizona’s spectacular high Sonoran Desert, and a keep ...

Went on a 2-hour hike yesterday evening at Saguaro East Park led by a park naturalist. What a unique experience and way to hike and explore the Sonoran Desert at night. The neatest part of the hike was when we used black light flashlights to find scorpions along the washes edge. The scorpions glow green under the black light! Also called out to the fruit bats and great horned owls...but didn't see any! :)
Long trip, about 8 hours, from San Carlos to Mazatlan. Beautiful country, Sonoran Desert, lots of agricultrure and then the Jungle before Mazatlan. Hectic in the city, but found our hotel.

The Desert Rose. Messages of God's Glory "The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God." (Isa 35:1-2 NIV) Have you ever lived in a desert, surrounded by hills of unending sand, with heat that makes you sweat the minute you step outdoor of you air-conditioned home? We lived for a time in the Sonoran Desert, in Southern Arizona. It was a place where you could literally cook eggs on the sidewalk! But I discovered something vitally important while living there. Even amidst the aridity of the desert, mindboggling splendors can be found. Flowers, for example, are abundant at certain times of the year, even in this arid climate. The cacti bloom in the spring, the Ocotillo plants bloom whenever it rains, and even when the plants aren't blooming, the de ...

"Innocence" By Ed Copley, from Scottsdale, Arizona - oil on panel - Dr. Lew Deitch Working from his studio in Scottsdale, Arizona, Ed is a man of many visions. He is equally as comfortable painting a landscape of the Sonoran Desert with its majestic saguaro cacti piercing a storm tossed summer sky, a Tarahumara Indian woman with a weatherd face, set against the backdrop of the Barrancas del Cobre of northern Mexico or a classical image of the Blessed Virgin Mary. No matter what the subject, he portrays it with realistic depth and brilliance, attempting only to bring it to life in a most exquisite manner. His representational style draws together many techniques dating back to the renaissance, masterful and painstaking skills that have nearly vanished in an art world that is often more consumed by commercialism.

8/11/12 this seems fun enough but it reminds me of the plagues of Egypt...im sure not so huge..but the evil of bondage is also a devourer! Egypt represents bondage and also aliance...often Egypt took in the Hebrews or helped like Abraham.if we will comitt of being aware of all the compromise around us.stop complaining, be-moaning the sin and compromise of others.the media, the governments, the moral decline of our societies, and look at our own..what we do and say..that exposes us as weak and compromised in our own walk.we will then have a greater concern/alarm for the sinners.make the aliance with them to reveal hope and deliverence for them too!..see our own downfalls and the great need to shake off the dirt of our own failings and excuses and model truth in a way that will draw others to the forgiving/healing/ retoring power of God.Yeshua (Jesus) was alined to sinners as love, light, truth and hope..in Egypt the frogs were coming as judgment for not allowing God's people to go free.these evil devour ...

Ridding a motorcycle and never having a wind shield in the Sonoran Desert has made me kinda of an expert on BUGS. Grasshoppers are not all that bad and have kind of a Woody taste. June bugs will enable you to skip lunch but need a pinch of salt. (just lick your arm for added salt on a hot day) Nats and mosquitos are to small to tickle your taste buds but do have a nice texture. Moths of any variety YUK!!! Flying Ants are kind of a tasty treat as are bees. The trick is to CHEW them up or spit them out before they STING YOU! Flying Cockroaches have so far proved elusive to me and I hope this trend continues. (knock on wood) Wasps or Yellow jackets are not bad as far as bugs go but unless your very healthy I don't advise trying to chew these. Locust are not my favorite and usually cause injury when trying to capture and taste like Pine Sol!!! If anybody has any good bug knowledge feel free to comment.

A few days ago I read about a stone carving of an Egyptian head that was found in the Sonoran Desert! I have already contacted the curator, who now has the carving, of the museum in Ajo, Arizona. I have also found a book in the University of California that was written in 1847. It details the Ancient Chinese exploration in North America! The Ancient Chinese called North America "Fu-Sang" or the "Helpful Mulberry Tree". Interestingly enough, the Ancient Mexicans also called North America a Mulberry Tree that was planted in South America, it's trunk is Central America, and the branches are North America. The Ancient Chinese also speak of Canada and the Arctic. They call the Arctic "The Land of the 10 Suns". Also the Ancient Chinese records speak of their explorations of the Grand Canyon. I have not read the whole book yet and thus far does not give a time frame, BUT it may detail the construction of the lost city in the Grand Canyon that I have been researching for almost 4 years now. It may also detail int ...

Yesterday was a typical hot August day on the Sonoran Desert. Bright sunshine without a cloud in sight. Excessive heat warnings were posted by the weather service through Sunday. Outside temps were 105 degrees at noontime with a high of 113 expected by 5 PM. Swimming pool deck would blister your bare feet, flip flops are a must. It was the kind of day that test your air conditioning system. Ours failed. By early afternoon our house began to heat up and stayed warm until sunset. Called the Air service people this morning and they were swamped with calls but would try to get here between 1 and 5 PM. Key word here is TRY. We have some cooling, so I hope they take care of the folks with no cooling first. By the way, school started here this week. Poor kids must stay indoors for the entire school day and are instructed to carry extra bottles of water.
We have that Awe inspiring Sonoran Desert summer night lightning thang a-happenin. Love it.

City slickers and country folk alike will enjoy their stay at the Tanque Verde Ranch, a family resort aiming to lasso the cowboy outta everyone. Literally meaning "Green Pool," the 640-acre Tanque Verde Ranch is a serene oasis nestled into the Sonoran Desert and adjacent to Saguaro National Park. With over 400 horses, it's no surprise that this dude ranch offers ample riding opportunities. Specialty rides such as the Breakfast Ride (to a meal at the Old Homestead), 6-hour-long Day Rides and Picnic Rides with lunch in Cottonwood Grove are all available. Newcomers can take riding lessons at a variety of levels.
Home again. This is the travel report that we sent home while away. Travel report 1 Having a great time firstly we visited Hollywood and Universal Studio both are well worth the effort, walked down the walk of fame saw some very weird people and went on some very special rides including Transformer 3D, Jurassic Park and The Mummy also saw Jaws up very close. Yesterday we travelled down to San Diego via San Juan Capistrano (where the swallows came back to) went to the old market town bought some trinkets etc., very Mexican not far from the border near Tijuana. Today we travelled to Phoenix via Palm Springs through the Sonoran Desert, very dry and hot the temp when we arrived in Phoenix was 102F Tomorrow we are very excited about going to the Grand Canyon.

As the summer heat intensifies, think back to the Israelites as they came to wander in the desert (“the wilderness”) for 38 years. The people must have complained about lack of water. As residents of the Sonoran Desert, we, too, are concerned about water. Water conservation and preservation is critical. Tucson residents are world-class water savers. Our combined average daily residential and non-residential water consumption (known as "per capita" water consumption — gallons per capita per day) is generally 160 gallons. That's far below the average rates in other parts of Arizona and the western United States. The City of Tucson offers a Homeowner’s Guide to Using Water Wisely.

It's raining here in Tucson. Not really interesting if you don't live in the desert. However, the Sonoran Desert (where Tucson is) is the wettest desert on Earth. If it were any wetter, it would turn into a savanna, like the Serengeti in Africa, or part of northern Australia. It has been raining for many hours, and local flooding is occurring. All the dry rivers (washes) here are now rivers and streams. That's today's lesson.
We have thunder and lightning, rain and fireworks all at the same time...I am going back to bed. Life in the Sonoran Desert is interesting. Oh...The window screens are coverd with lizards and the cats are going nuts!

Coming up on Tuesday - When illegal immigrants disappear while crossing the Sonoran desert into the United States, the local authorities and border patrol rarely, if ever, search for them.
