Driving the High Mexican Desert

The trip down to Oaxaca brought us through the high southern Mexican desert, a land of arid, thin soils and spectacular color contrasts.  Despite the desolation, one is never alone when there are so many cacti….

...and vistas of cacti-laden valleys

The tall cacti keep silent in the late afternoon sun.

These pictures are all taken from the toll road, highway 150, which leads from Tehuacán to Oaxaca… definitely worth a peek if you’re into desert pictures.

México, D.F.
