Merry Christmas

A rock formation resembling a smiling face looks out over the desert at sunrise on the Marcus Landslide Trail in McDowell Sonoran Preserve

I call this rock formation the Guardian of the Desert, I love how it smiles while looking out over the desert valley. It reminds me of the moai on Easter Island, though this statue was not carved by human hands. I spent this Christmas morning on the trails but the picture is from a month ago, taken at first light on a lovely morning in the Sonoran Desert.
