south of the gila

Florence, AZ

February 29, 2012

We followed Steve and Jayne on a spectacular desert ride that Steve calls “South of the Gila.”   The lush mountain desert landscapes were jaw dropping in every direction.  The wildflowers are making an early appearance this year.


We stopped to see the Gila River.


The rocky desert around North and South Buttes was just beautiful with large saguaros and desert greenery.


We stopped to see the old railroad bridge that crosses the Gila River and goes into a tunnel on the other side of the river.


Thanks again to Steve and Jayne for sharing this beauty with us.
