Arizona sunsets and other great stuff
It’s not all hummingbirds here in the desert, we have been doing other stuff too. I am of course obsessed with Arizona sunsets.
We have had some really nice skies, and golden light lately.
I took this shot the other night when the moon was still fairly new. I could see the clouds were going to make a good sunset, so I took the dogs, and my camera and went for a little walk.
I am looking forward to the full moon on the 31st. There is going to be a lunar eclipse early in the morning, and I’m scoping out a good spot to be for that.
Al has been working since he got back from Seattle. Last September he got a commission piece for a carved bar that will go to Jackson Hole. He had packed everything he needed for the job, and now is working on it. Carving outdoors, in the sun, in the desert. Ya, it’s a pretty good thing.
I’ve been to the dog park a few times. Of course the dogs are thrilled with this idea. Grass, excessive running, grass. They have 2 large dog parks here, one for big dogs, one for small. These guys go to the small dog park, and Torrey gets to play frisbee.
This is the first year I have known about the dog park in Quartzsite. I wish I had figured it out several years ago.
We have had some other very nice birds visiting. This is a Says Phoebe and it sings so nice.
This is a Verdin. It visited for a fleeting moment, then left.
Every evening we go walking with the dogs before the sun goes down. Torrey loves to run at me while I take her photo. Such a happy, smiley girl.
I love this shot. My super model girl.
We love our little spot in the desert. We will be going towards Yuma fairly soon so we can go to the dentist in Algodones, Mexico. I also want to stay at the Kofa national wildlife refuge again. Quartzsite is currently overflowing with people, so having our slice of quite is a great thing.
