So many interesting things — 24 Comments

  1. Mom says to watch out for cacti. She was in Tucson her first year of college and tripped, landed behind first on a Saguaro cactus and got two thorns in her behind. They are really nasty and she couldn’t sit for a couple days – LOL! Pretty cool with the tank tracks and ammunition. A bit like Germany where they are always finding bombs from WW2.

  2. That’s pretty cool stuff. Hard to imagine those tracks still being there after that long a time. And the nest is interesting. I wonder what’s living in there…and maybe it’s better that we don’t know what’s living in there.. BOL

    Hap-Pee Turdsday!

  3. I draw, and have always been fascinated with tree bark. The bark on the Ironwood tree above is amazing, would look sooo cool in pen and ink. I think the other tree that fascinates me is the Banyan Tree in South Florida

  4. wow wish we were there. we are both rock hounds big time and those gnarly pics are so cool.

  5. Wow Torrey, you have some amazing photos and stories today (not surprising to me!) We had a hummingbird feeder ourselves but lost it during a storm and have never replaced it. Maybe this spring…you are right though, they are super fast. We are just excited to see them and haven’t even attempted pictures. Your mom did a good job trying to capture the beauty of the elusive hummingbird.

  6. Tank tracks from WWII – that’s super cool! What a neat historical site you get to just explore.
    I think humming birds are so cool – they’re pretty rare around here. Pretty awesome that you put up a feeder and get guests right away!

  7. Torrey, that gnarly tree is so cool! And oh, I am so surprised that you caught a hummingbird on camera…they are lightning fast! Great photos.
    Happy Friday,

  8. Wow, that nest really is well protected. I never thought about animals using cacti to defend their nests.

    And, tank tracks from WWII? That’s incredible.

  9. You see such cool things when you walk! We always wonder the same thing about our hummingbirds. That might be one thing we have in common across the country…yours look like ruby throated also.
