We got up this morning after the sunrise. Tom made and served our coffee and I said lets not do anything but relax today. That did not totally happen, Tom washed some of the dirt and dust off of the Stinger "B" and the Jeep. Yet, for the most part, it was just one of those special days to be enjoyed and just be here in this wonderful place. A day to enjoy the blue sky and the every changing colors of the desert floor and plants. While at the same time being able to see the ruggedness of the Kofa Mountains to the East of us, I believe the Hidden Valley Hills to the South, plus the Chocolate Mountains are off to the Southwest, and the Trigo Mountains way off in the West. (I know from looking at the Arizona Benchmark these are the mountains surrounding us.)
I did a few things inside and then decided to take a little walk around our neighborhood to see what I could see. Below are some of the pictures from the walk.
|I am thinking this one may be a teenager.|
|It looked to me like a bird was taking flight off|
of the branch on the left.
One good thing about looking down a lot when I am walking is sometimes I see things that are interesting. Well at least to me they are interesting. Today's find were several pieces of weathered wood that my imagination helped my eyes see something in. (Clicking on the pictures will open them larger in a new window.) I did not touch or move any of them I snapped their picture as I saw them, hoping someone else will see them, and enjoy seeing what I did. One last note, I have decided not to put a title on the pictures but let anyone looking at them decide if they see something and what. Some days it is just weathered wood yet beautiful in its own way.
When I was finished with my walk I attached my zoom lens to see what I could see in the distance.
|Wonderfully stately Saguaros.|
|I love this view even with A-95 and the electrical wires in it.|
|A whole field of Saguaros.|
|This was my second favorite view as I sat out on our patio.|
|Have I mentioned the sky is blue?|
Sitting, relaxing, and looking straight up.
|Well it is.|
|Not a bad patio view to look out at while enjoying Happy Hour.|
|As the sun starts to set it lights up the plants on the floor of the|
desert and they seem to glow.
|The sun sets slowly in a golden/orange glow.|
|This is my favorite view, especially with the last of the sun's light on it.|
We can see the entrance to Palm Canyon in the shadows from our site.
|We enjoyed the colors of tonight's sunset.|
We enjoyed out time parked out near Palm Canyon. It was peaceful and quiet.
