Sunday was such a beautiful day for a hike through Sabino Canyon. On my way back, I came across a black tip rattlesnake that was crossing the road. Seeing this snake, was a good reminider that with the warmer weather, our reptile friends are now present and one has to hike with caution.
When I returned to the Sabino Recreation kiosk, there were some beautiful mosaics that protrayed the wide variety of birdlife in the canyon and the many different species. Initially, I was only going to post two or three photos, but then couldn't choose, so please enjoy them all.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
