RIP BLUE


Yes, we lost everybody's friend Blue yesterday.  He was 87 1/2 and rode up until about twelve days before his passing.  He was certainly an inspiration to the rest of us.  This image is from last December 29.

These two images are just above Box Canyon


I took this photo on the south side of the Gila River looking east

Two images taken as we approached the first hills east of Florence


Just above Box Canyon on the Martinez Mine Road

Along some side trails below Box Canyon, this and the following four images

Our desert is getting really green after all the rain
