Sundays are for Saguaros (and apparently owls)

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.
