Evening hike up Carr Peak (9200 ft.). This range lies near the Mexican border outside of Sierra Vista, AZ. On the climb up, looking down across the valley I noted its abundance of highways and city streets and found myself imagining this same landscape with nothing more than a small smoke trail peaking out from a distant mountain. How breathtaking that would be. As I neared the summit, what my eyes found brought a smile. Looking across Mexico, there were only mountains and seemingly untouched valleys stretching to the horizon.
