Beauty at the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge
Last Saturday we moved to the Kofa national wildlife refuge. We have stayed here before, and wanted to spend time here again, because it’s just so beautiful. The mountains to the east are unbelievably beautiful, morning or evening. Well, all day for that matter. On this particular morning, the sunrise was exceptional.
In the evening, the mountain glows with the last light of the day.
We even had a swan in the sky the other morning. She was protecting the moon in her wings.
We went for a hike a couple mornings ago, and saw some big horn sheep. These guys are wary though, and were very far away and moving further up. This was my only passable shot of them.
Then we saw this little buck deer. We have seen deer before in the desert, and it always amazes me.
The hike we like, goes along the bottom of the big mountain, and opens into another valley. The rock formations here are what makes it so nice.
We stopped in the shade for a while, and Roxy expected a treat from the dog dad. I’m not sure why she thought she needed a treat, she was in the backpack the whole hike. Lol.
Torrey of course just has fun, hiking and sniffing. She is actually the one that alerted us to the bighorn sheep. She gave a little woof, which made us both start looking around.
Every evening we have walkies, Torrey would never let me forget that part of the day. I also love photographing the dogs in the golden light. I have a new camera, so I have been getting to know it, and shooting a lot.
Roxy is getting stubborn in her old age. If she doesn’t want to walk, she just doesn’t. On this particular evening she put her little paws down, and wasn’t moving.
“I will walk for half a second.”
“But that’s it.”
“Nope, you can’t make me move.”
Tomorrow we are going to move again, and go to a spot we’ve never been before. It’s beside a lake, and if it’s not too crowded we will stay for a week or maybe more. We haven’t actually planned that far ahead.
Plans, what are plans?! Lol
