In The Shadow Of The Ghost Of Don Quixote   1 comment

Image by kenne

There stand the remains of a hopeless battle

watched over by the ghost of Don Quixote.

Although the ghost whispers are never heard,

try as I may to distinguish between fantasy and reality,

every windmill stands in the shadow of the ghost of Don Quixote

giving this tool of man a human spirit

leaving us to decide which is the more ideal vision –

the practical but mundane image of a windmill,

or that of the idealistic dreamer of the impossible dream –

in the end, we all see only what we wish to see?

Hiking Hope Camp Trail   5 comments

Images by kenne

Monday Morning Hikers spent about three hours on Hope Camp Trail at the eastern base of the Rincon Mountains. This trail is an easy to moderate hike. Since this hike was my first in the eastern foothills of the Rincon’s, I was interested in doing it once — not a bad walk if you are new to hiking in the Tucson area .

I decided to do these photos in black & white since the normal “Tucson blue” sky was blocked by high clouds. Yes, not everyday is just “another beautiful day” in Tucson.
