Hiking!!

As mentioned previously, it is SPRING here in Tucson. My hubby and I started walking/hiking - long on the list of TO DO things.

I just have to share some of our pictures from our latest walk/hike in Catalina State Park, a mere 10-15 minutes from our home.

Enjoy the beauty of the southwest!


The washes are running from the snow melt in the mountains.

Saguaro cactus on the hill.



Grass!






As we were walking down the trail - there was a crash from somewhere just before us. "What was that?!" We kept walking and soon saw what it was. An arm had just fallen off of this giant saguaro cactus. Just like that. Bizarre!





View of Pusch Ridge.




Wildflowers.

This landscape looks just like scenes from a cowboy movie! It would have been an adventure for me to go walking in a place like this!
