As long as I can remember, I wanted to see the desert in bloom. When I finally did, (2001) I was not dissapointed. I’ve loved the desert ever since. The bloom was just the beginning of knowing what the desert is, a unique place of cactuses and flowers (Organ Pipe Cactus National Park), beautiful sand dunes (White Sands NM, Great Sand Dunes NP) and much more. Here are just a few of the scenic wonders of this area.
