More As Seen in Tucson

We’re still here!  Today was a hot ride.  We successfully got out of the house earlier than usual, but our departures still need a little work.  We’re getting a cooling trend starting tomorrow, so maybe I can finish my coffee before dashing out of the RV.

Here is some of the stuff we’ve seen on the trails lately.  Happily, we have seen no more snakes.

The ocotillos have leafed out and are blooming.  We saw a hummingbird feeding at one, but he left before the camera could be deployed.


The other day we took the walk through the bowl of Tucson Mountain Park, and saw this crested cactus.  He’s pretty far away, but if you look carefully you can see that the original crest put out two normal arms and two crested arms.  He has been busy.


I think this is Golden Gate Mountain in the background.  The light was really spectacular, but the camera did not completely capture it.  Notice the ocotillo on the right side.  Leafed and blooming.


So there you have it.  Hike and bike.
