Some pictures of my “Girls weekend getaway” in Puerto Peñasco or what Americans call, Rocky Point. I think it’s ironic that I’ve lived in Arizona my whole life and have traveled to so many countries but it took me 30 years to finally go to Mexico (which is only 2 and a half hrs by car). It was a fun road trip through the Sonoran desert with the girls and we stopped at the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument before crossing the border. New experiences and new appreciation of the desert indeed. After our weekend in Puerto Peñasco, we stopped in Ajo, Arizona. I noticed an alley filled with street art and knew we had to turn around, after a burrito stop, of course. I’m originally from Northern Arizona but the longer I have been living in Phoenix (Southern Arizona) I am finally appreciating the Sonoran desert and being surrounded by all the beautiful Indigenous plants (cactus, ocotillio, Aloe Vera, Yucca, etc.). I have never been to this part of Southern Arizona, at times it was new and exciting but yet familiar and homely.
♥Beach Fossils- Face it♥
We are the bright light reflecting off the water
We are the sun shining on the water
We are the water flowing through the canyons
We are the roads that get you home
We are the canyon rims that create unheard echoes
We are the canyon rims that create echoes heard
We are the canyon walls that protected our ancestors from Custer
We are the canyons walls that ache for you to come home
We are the canyons where animals only dwell
We are the canyons where our wells have dried
We are the canyons that have heard you cry
We are the canyons where homes have been crumbled
We are the canyons where we have seen many stumble
Stumble into something
Stumble into everything
Stumble into heartache
Stumble into Mistakes
Stumble into dreams
Stumble in schemes
Stumbles into love
Stumble into hate
Stumble in fear
Stumble into truth
Stumble into lies
Stumble into cries
We are the ones that have seen you.

Although, I technically left yesterday for the Pacific Northwest, I feel as though my journey started when I went to Shonto to visit my Grandma. Therefore, I thought I would share some photos of my visit to where my mother, grandmother and great grandmother are from. Just a little insight as to who I am and where my maternal family comes from.
