SCVN Pima Canyon Hike -- 01-06012_20120106_1192 Hikers In Morning Sun-II-Art-3-blog-2Hikers — Photo-Artistry by kenne

As aging hikers
We walk the trails
Under the desert skies
Where nature welcomes
And challenges us
In our active desire
To remain forever young.

The trail has become a school.
Why was I not surprised?
Sometimes hikers walk without a sound.
The hiker listens, as animals move 
in their stillness to go unnoticed.
Just as the cancer entered her body,
unnoticed, without a sound.
Why were we surprised?

Capturing The Moment — Much Needed Rain In The Desert   2 comments

Misc 01-27-13

Yesterday we received a much-needed 1.6 inches of rain (patio reading) with even more at the higher elevations.
This image is from our patio, looking south past our neighbor toward the Tanque Verde wash.

Later in the day the clouds began to breakup, with still a heavy cover over the Catalinas.

This morning I walked along the Tanque Verde wash, which now has water flowing toward the Rillito river at Craycroft Road.

Before the rains this weekend, I was leading a SCVN hike in Sabino Canyon, which involved crossing the Sabino Creek —
an easy task compared to what some hikers were having to deal with yesterday in Bear Canyon, located just east of Sabino Canyon.
