We had wonderful weather and a bit of cloud in the sky for the pictures! It was cool, mid-50s F or 10s C so perfect for hiking. Here's a link to a few and I'll post in the travel tales/photography as well. I took a crazy number of pictures so it was hard to pare it down. I included a few from our hike in Phoenix too, bird shots. An awesome trip!

You *knew* you had me with the birds! Love Roadrunners. Did you know they are in the cuckoo family? Did you see Wiley?

I love birds too but it's a recent thing. I spent many years practising sports photography when my daughter played multiple sports. Photographing birds is my latest challenge! I work with a very avid birder who never lets me identify birds in my photo books as "large brown bird on road" or "small yellow bird in shrub". I have to have them properly identified before I show them to her. My biggest challenge so far was Egypt and I actually had to send a couple of pictures off for identification to an Egyptian ornithologist I found on the internet!

A roadrunner is a cuckoo? We thought we'd seen Wile E but it turned out to be a really, really big jackrabbit! Similar colour to him and was hopping after the roadrunners so go figure!
I will never let my dreams just be dreams.
