What a gorgeous view you've framed well here! It is intimidating at the same time as one nears the railing and sees the sheer drop!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It truly is... I'm thinking this will be one of our fall hikes this year - the trail wraps back around, up the canyon, then down to the river... should be perfect in October!

How good it is!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is lovely! Thank you, Ray!
J'aime la forme torturée de ces arbres.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too, Martine! A lot of wind on that cliff edge!
Don't you just love when old trees like this frame the vista, Elizabeth!!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh I do! I also took a shot framing the river between the two trunks... but I liked this better! Thank you!

That tree almost looks as old as the rocks behind it. What a fabulous view and good luck with your hike if you decide to do so in October, Elizabeth!

...and it's a lovely vista, too. Love the texture of the tree (I've forgotten what the tree type is called). Is that a waterfall in the valley?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is! These are Western Junipers. This is looking south down Oak Creek Canyon... so - no - but I can see how you'd get that from the image.
Those trees are just glowing E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They did seem to be!
What a terrific picture of such an impressive place.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Brian!
The pines take my breath away. Wow!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too! These are Western Junipers... found often on canyon ledges in Arizona - they seem to like being tortured by the wind!

Love these reds...wonderful composition !
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Bonnie!
What a gorgeous composition, Elizabeth. Worthy to be an artist's painting.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Beverly! I took another shot framing the river between the two trunks - but liked this better!
I love the earthy tones and this rugged view.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ruthie! It's typical Arizona! smile
Where is this then ? Great lack of info on this site....
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Are you gettin' smart with me????

the trees are just delightful

they feel as if they're in motion
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Sherri! They do appear very fluid, don't they?!
Love that rugged landscape........must be great walking country, when it's cooler! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is gorgeous! Yes - well, if you get down to the river, you can walk in its coolness!
