Whenever a nice day happens, I try to do something outdoors. Phil, Barbara and I went on another hike by the Superstition Mountains, this one starts where FR78 (First Water Rd) meets AZ88.
You can walk right up to the base of the Superstitions.
I just love this area - you never know when you're going to see a cowboy on a horse! He'd look better with a cowboy hat on though...
Lots of cactus were in bloom, again with no shortage of pollen.
But I'm still trying to get a good picture of a saguaro bloom. Unfortunately, they're all at least 20 feet in the air.
Pretty good, but I'm still not happy. But don't worry, I won't give up!
This guy's waiting for the show too. I think this is some kind of Thrasher - anyone know for sure?
Back home, there are lots of Gambel's Quails running all over the park. I'm surprised I haven't seen any babies.
And I finally got a picture of a male hummingbird. Most of the time the males won't land on the feeder.
Believe it or not, I'm actually getting ready to leave town and head for higher elevations. About time, huh?
