|I love this road to Madera Canyon...|
Madera Canyon has been a long time favorite for Joe and I. We first visited this gorgeous canyon years ago as snowbirds and these days, we say it is practically in our backyard. Thursday, dawned a perfect morning...mild temps, a light breeze, and gorgeous blue skies. Since we needed to be in Green Valley to pick up meds for Jack and Sally at our vets, we decided to take a walk in the canyon first. Middle Madera Canyon was our choice for the day...
Usually when we finish hiking this trail, we continue our walk down to the Santa Rita Lodge Gift Shop to sit on the patio for a snack and water break.
|Wednesday about 12:30 pm...we were very happy the storms skirted all around us and our neighborhood had a wonderful rain while downtown Tucson had no rain.|
Mornings are nice so walks are still early...
I just happened to look out the bedroom window one morning and saw a hawk in our backyard. It was on the ground under the bottlebrush tree and flew to the fence and perched there. I didn't have my camera and by the time I got to the patio door with it, the hawk had flown off. I'm sure it left empty handed and hungry as there was no evidence it had been successful.
