Superstition Mountain, Phoenix, Arizona.

The Majestic Superstition Mountain

Superstition Mountain is a huge mountain located on the Northeastern side of Phoenix. It’s grand and majestic, especially if you see it from afar. As clouds hover above it, I’m not sure if it’s black or brown or something reddish. As soon as you’re out of the Highway 88, you’ll be heading towards Superstition Mountain […]

These Giant Cactuses Dwarfed Me

Back in the third world, we used to have cactus and aloe vera plants in our backyard. We would skinned them from their thorns, using a nail cutter and scissors, until they’re flawless and bald. Of course, our poor mother would be so angry why we would do that to those poor plants. Well, you […]
