Good Friday Hike In Ventana Canyon   Leave a comment

Normally I would be hiking on Good Friday, but today I will be attending a memorial service for a fellow naturalist. I’m reblogging this post from eight years ago. — kenne

We are always becoming according to the way in which we actualize ourselves.

reflecting it back at you, which is why they look GREEN.”

Like small desert wildflowers
Hide among the rocks.

A sunset
we were watching with others
and forget to take it in —
when we looked 
it was gone.

when I paint

the canvas grows

getting attention

through the window

coaxing the shadows

by invisible lines

letting the colors

come to life

I first spotted this snake crossing Bear Canyon road. Couchwipe snakes are fast,
so I moved quickly as he climbed a Palo Verde tree to capture this image.
This coachwhip was about 3 feet long.

Last Of The Migrating Turkey Vultures — Images by kenne (Three images in a slideshow format.)

Usually, by 1st of April, the last of the turkey vultures rousting overnight near the Tanque Verde has completed the spring migration north. This year we have counted upwards of 100 leaving each morning now well into April.
