GETTING BACK IN THE GROOVE IN CALIENTE

Yes, we're getting immersed in AZ again.  Aileen put on a fancy spread for my birthday on Friday.  I've been riding three times and tonight we had our first monthly ATV club potluck.  We've been cleaning and organizing and planning all manner of things.  I managed to find a near new used bike just down the street to replace my bike that was stolen in Clifton.  I had looked at the same bike earlier in Kmart Casa Grande for $155 and this one was $50.  Lucky find!
A classic desert shot in our riding area.  Saguaro cactus. mesquite, palo verde, brittlebush and cholla

This is a mature Fishhook Barrel Cactus and it is armed and ready to defend itself

The start of Box Canyon is just to the left of the shadow
