Tucson wasn't our first choice to spend the month of December, but it has turned out to a good spot for us. The second cooling unit Jeff Fisher (Fisher's RV Repair) installed did the job and we have a fully stocked refrigerator once again. Since we were here, Joe made a visit to the dermatologist. Two biopsies were taken and both turned out to be positive. He now has a nice incision on his cheek...the 7th one his face and neck...and another one on the top of his left shoulder. Stitches will come out on the 27th just in time for us to pull out and get to San Diego for the month of January. Thats the plan today !
The weather has been perfect. I have been longing to visit the desert and yesterday turned out to be the day. Our choice for the morning was Sabino Canyon Recreation Area. It's my favorite place to go in Tucson ! We meandered so I can't say we hiked, but man oh man did it feel good. With camera in hand, we oohed and ahhed for a few hours just soaking it all in. I was so excited, I had to remind myself to breath.
Black-throated Sparrows are beautiful little birds that forge the desert floor in groups.
And it's always fun to spot a Greater Roadrunner and be quick enough to snap a picture. I will never forget the first Roadrunner I had the pleasure of photographing. It was also at Sabino Canyon back in March 2014. See the Featured Post (top right hand side of our blog page) to enjoy one of the most special photo shoots I have ever had.
and the backdrop was spectacular.
Happy Trails !
