Let’s start with one of the coolest things I’ve seen hiking in Arizona. I’ve passed by this nest a hundred times and always wondered “what lives there”? Well, I found out. It’s an owl. A great horned owl, to be more precise. And the momma owl was busy nesting, peeking a bit with one eye to make sure I wasn’t a threat. I’m hoping that I will get a chance to see the chicks in the coming weeks.
I do my best to be out in the desert on the weekends. This past weekend was no exception. One of the things that I never get enough of are saguaros.
There is nothing more iconic in the desert. And I marvel at the infinite shapes.
There are other things to see.
And it helps when a balloon or two swing by.
