There's some nice mountain bike trails behind our park and we checked them out with Jim and Allison today. We met these two on the trail last year in Tucson. Really glad our paths have crossed again. Couldn't have asked for better weather or company!
|Hans, Jim, Allison...great ride today!|
Working backward: last night we enjoyed a fun happy hour at Bill and Heidi's place. We met them last year in Silver City and met a few of their friends here in the park last night. There are some really nice folks staying at this park!
|L to R: Bill, Heidi, Bill, Hans, Gary, Linda, Linda.|
I talked about the owl sightings recently, and later got the clearest photo yet:
Here's a a few more bird photos, taken in the desert garden right behind our rig...
|Gambels quail fluffing feathers.|
|Love the orange eye of the Curved bill thrasher.|
|There's a pair of Northern cardinals hanging our in our garden.|
This is the female.
|And the male.|
|Yes, I see you!|
We did a short hike over in Saguaro National Park East the day Hans got his permanent crown. It's just as pretty on the East side as the West.
