  1. Love that shot of Roxy in the backpack! Looks like a stuffed dog at first! Don’t run into or fall onto any of those cacti!

  2. Call us city folks but mom would never go walking there she is too scared she’d see a snake. It is beautiful though and we wonder how you don’t get lost and hope you wear sunscreen! Love Dolly

  3. That cacti photo is so pretty. We had no idea they had to be so old to grow like that. How cool! I think I would be with Torrey chasing the jackrabbits. I sure hope you enjoy your spot. It looks very beautiful.

  4. fantastic pics Mary! I’m fasinated with Cacti. they are so strange but wonderful and very interresting. any insects there? Like no seeums?

  5. This makes me want to visit Arizona and walk the trails. My ma loves cacti. She used to have many plants but once Jenny Sue (Sissy Spaniel) went blind , she had to rehome the plants for safety reasons. The plants were too huge to elevate in plant stands. Can’t wait to see more of your trip.

  6. Yes keep those coyotes at bay!!!!
    I LOVE your photos!! I would give anything to be able to go to half the places you do and see the beauty that you do! I am so glad I follow your blog and get to witness your hikes and your finding etc…
    Thats interesting info about the catus growing its first arm at such an old age!! My mother passed on her love of cactus to me, I think they are super unique and I love the flower shaped ones!

  7. Really lovely pictures. And there is something to be said for touring in a backpack – certainly keeps you out of harms way with the coyotes!

  8. Thanks for sharing the website, if my husband ever finally retires we plan to be old ‘hippies’ and travel in an RV/modified van/ or whatever. Kinda envious right now :)

  9. Wow, a hundred years old! Nature is so awesome. Except for the annoying jackrabbits, I’m glad you all had a good time. :)

  10. Poor Torrey. She’s just looking for a little fun.

    Thanks for sharing your adventures with us, Roxy. I loved the warm weather pictures.

  11. Wow, what a lovely spot. I’ve never seen a saquaro cactus in person, and I want to. I had no idea that they lived so long and grew so slowly!

    Flowers – wow!

  12. Hey Guys

    I always love hearing about where you are, you’re always having adventures!

    I’m curious, how do you stay online so much? Do you have wifi in the campgrounds or do it through your phone? Just wondering :)

    I hope you’re having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  13. When you are out in a place where there are tons of trails, are they marked? When you hike them, presuming they aren’t marked, do you mark your directions yourself, or do you carry a GPS?

    BTW, the pictures are totally cool.

  14. Thanks for the info on the Saguaro. Such amazing things. And how cool that the prickly pear sometimes grows heart shaped. Love that you get to ride in the backpack Roxy!
