Everyday Beauty

EVERY DAY I drive by these mountains, and EVERY DAY I think, "Man, I wish I could get a picture of those." But, I never do, either because I don't have my camera with me or stopping would make me late for work. Thanks to this challenge...I stopped this morning. And I did take a picture of these mountains that I see (very literally) EVERY DAY. It was great. The sad thing is that this picture doesn't even scratch the surface of how breathtaking these peaks are.
* sigh *
It's no secret that I hate living in Arizona. However, seeing these mountains every day is just one of the things that make my surroundings a little more bearable to endure!

I'm from Mesa! (It's not soooo very bad... in the winter!) I really miss those mountains though. Wisconsin just has the lake. Just not quite so majestic as some beautiful mountain ranges.

When I first saw your picture I thought it was beautiful, especially with the frame around it. The colors just pop out so I think it is very beautiful.

I wish I was in AZ, I love the high and low deserts.
Where would you rather be?
Your picture is beautiful, I wanna go on a road trip, lol

Oh, I would love to be somewhere still surrounded by mountains (covered in trees and not cactus)...but in a state more like MONTANA or WYOMING, where there are plains and TREES and seasons...and LAND for HORSES. Yes, that is my mecca...NOT the desert.
