Hiking...

This was the view that greeted us outside our door yesterday..really, who comes to Arizona to see snow at the lower elevations? Even the golf match had to be suspended in Tucson for a day...we made good use of the day..tried in new hiking boots at REI...our goal is to hike 250 miles before we head back to BC in early April...I have worn a pair of hiking shoes out already...they lasted 188 miles....I am sure we will hike those extra miles and see some amazing desert wildflowers with in the next 7 weeks.










Ocotillo cacti starting to leaf out..the first sign of spring in the desert.

Wow! Snow and cactus in the same post... amazing photos!!! That view is gorgeous; you are so lucky to witness it. Good thing I'm not your neighbor IRL; I would have a heck of a time keeping up with you on those walks - although I'd love to try ;)
