Lichen on the rocks at Poston Butte out behind our park. John, Sue and I walked from the park to the Butte.
November 19, a really out of sync Saguaro bloom. Normal bloom time is March to June. This particular Saguaro was still blooming a week later. We haven't run across any others in bloom during our travels. This was near Box Canyon.
Looking over the bank from the blooming cactus
We drove the car out to the bottom of Box Canyon then walked partway up the canyon. We were lucky and saw eight Desert Bighorn Sheep. Aileen had Mitzy on her leash and the sheep didn't pay any attention to us. However, a cow came wandering along and the sheep went running further up the hill then really kept an eye on the cow.
It was nearing dark when we headed home from Box Canyon so we stopped to admire the moon and sunset behind the Saguaro
Taken from the seat of our RZR. I doubt I was more than 30 feet away, he didn't fly even when I drove past but he did when the group started past.
While waiting to depart on our boat ride on Canyon Lake I spied these reflections of the boat houses.
I also saw this kitten
Gorgeous day and scenery on Canyon Lake
I took this Curved Bill Thrasher portrait from our table while we were waiting for our lunch after the boat ride
A couple of later afternoon views of Canyon Lake as we were heading homeward
Found this old ram right beside the road on the way back from Canyon Lake
