Cactus Color along the Colorado

During a family rafting trip, we stopped along the Colorado River in Arizona for lunch. A short climb up a rocky hill revealed a beautiful desert vista with a splash of pink and yellow blossoms and the gorgeous blue of the river. We have nicknamed this hill "Ring Mountain" because my brother's wedding ring was lost (and miraculously found) in the rocks.

Location: Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Colorado River, Arizona
