Day 297 - Today I went for a hike with the hiking club and with one of the gal's who is in the coach next to ours. She is a much more experienced hiker that I am, but I needed to get out and get some walking in, so off I went for the 2 1/2 hours up this small mountain behind our park.
As you might have quessed, I was there to see what I could photograph. The weather has been warmer here than it usually is, so the desert plants are all coming alive earlier than usual and I really wanted to see the colors (and I wasn't going by myself and you can guess that Nick wasn't going AT ALL)!! Didn't want to encounter the waking snakes and the scorpions, etc. We hiked up to this one peak where someone had placed a cross and a bench to sit and view the valley below, but no explanation of the reason for the cross.
Nick and I are really getting into Pickle Ball, but we have played to much lately, that we are a little stiff and sore!
We are off to Tucson to see Nick's brother and we will be scouting our where we will spend the first week of March while we are there.
