Southern Arizona trails are very busy this time of year and unfortunately keeping search and rescue crews busy. Those of us who are frequently hiking the Santa Catalina Mountains are aware of some of its dangers. However, many of our winter visitors are not prepare for the rough terrain. This past Sunday the DPS copter crew had six rope rescues in the Catalinas, a one-day record.

Tomorrow, Nick and mom Kate return with Jaxon, grandson number two who will be five in May. Matt will be taking care of things back in Ft. Collins. Last time we saw the boys was two years ago in Ft. Collins. We are looking forward to a great week in the desert.

Western Window On The Past   Leave a comment

Peloncillo MountainsWestern Window On the Past — Image by kenne

The wind moves unnoticed through the window
like the memory of forgotten times
punctuated by years of drought
where water no longer moves
atop the creek beds, and cattle no longer roam,
each not sustainable in the basin
below the Peloncillo Mountains
where desert bushes and cactus
have replaced the grasslands
near Doubtful Pass trail once used by
the Butterfield Overland Stagecoach Company.

Broken

by the storm

blowed against

a bolder wall

aged by the sun

now gray and white —

old and broken

but still alive.

The sparrows are preparing for winter,
each one dressed in a plain brown coat
and singing a cheerful song.
