More Sweetwater

I guess you might say I could watch the ducks all day. Ginny's brother-in-law Colin has seen 17 new birds for him between the rv park and the refuge.

In New Mexico, we call this Mormon tea. The blossoms blow into my garage and make a mess when the door is open. Guaranteed to make you sneeze.

I learned that this guy is an American coot, as opposed to an old coot which is what I normally encounter. I don't see any webs on his feet. They look rather interesting.

Since coming to Tucson, I've spent a lot of time walking the trails along the San Luis River bed and over at Sweetwater Bird Refuge. Oh, and the sunsets are as spectacular as ever.

This was taken at the Tucson Mall outside of Macy's. I thought the cactus shadow looked like fingers.

A new bar coming to the mall. This was the same day I had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.

A view of the Catalina Mountains from Sweetwater.
