Boondocking at the Buenos Aires Wildlife refuge
We left the Buenos Aires yesterday. While it was super quite, and there were no people, there wasn’t much to look at. We like to have some kind of scenery, and this just wasn’t doing it for us. Expansive views of grassland and mesquite trees. I honestly think this place would be gorgeous in the spring.
We were hoping for way more wildlife, specifically birds. Yesterday we did two short hikes, were there was supposed to be a lot of birds. I think the drought has altered the birds habitat, and they don’t go there anymore. We did see a few small birds close to our camp spot.
And this coyote came super close to the RV. He pee’d on the spot where Torrey had gone that morning.
Al got up on the roof Tuesday evening with the spotting scope, to see what he could see. A couple of deer, falcons, and a great sunset.
Wednesday morning the full moon was beautiful as it set in the west.
Wednesday, we went on two separate walks in search of birds. The info I had, said that a lot of migratory birds stop here. The dogs just loved all the nice new smells.
We didn’t find any birds though.
We did find this awesome old homestead though. We love finds like this.
Don’t you love the color of this old metal?
The second place we went walking is called the Arivaca Cienega. I found the most beautiful butterfly there. This is a Pipevine swallowtail, and he just shimmered in the sun.
We got back to the RV fairly early, and decided to leave instead of waiting till morning. We had decided that we would head to Tubac. We heard about Tubac from an artist friend of ours. They have an art show here, and for such a small town, they have a pretty thriving art community. The art show started yesterday, so we thought this would be a great time to check out the show, and the town. We found a funky little place to park the RV in town, and we are going to check everything out today.
It’s a good thing we can be flexible. If we don’t like a place, we just get out the map, and find someplace else down the road. We are close to Nogales, Mexico here, so we will definitely be going there in the next couple of days.
Let the new adventure begin.
