Fall is slowly arriving in Tucson, and today was gorgeous. Here are some photographic highlights...
Benjamin enjoying the "wilderness".
Notice my hiking loafers. All serious hikers wear loafers.
The ocotillo green and happy from our late season monsoons.
A few of the cacti were still hanging onto their blooms.
A very serious looking spurge that I spotted in the underbrush.
Good thing I absorbed all of that wicked plant knowledge from Amy Stewart.
All of the plants were full and healthy, the desert is steadily recovering from the hard freeze we had in February. Today the Prairie Dogs were busy frolicking with their new babies, the javelina were snoozing the day away under a bridge and the onion rings were golden little balls of fried goodness. It was a really good day to be in Tucson, AZ.
