Wandering Aimlessly


The Southwest

by Phil Burkhouse


Most of my wandering aimlessly adventures occur at the local level, but occasionally Mary and I will get an opportunity to wander off on distant adventures.  Leaving your local comfort zone and wandering into unknown places can be intimidating, but the rewards of having new and exciting experiences far outweigh the fear of the unknown.

When Mary and I received an invitation from Rich and Jo Kamats to visit them in Tucson, Arizona, I thought, “Oh, boy—the desert.”  The desert presents a unique change from our native Cameron County, and exploring an entirely different habitat with its unusual plants and animals was a joy.
