Unlike “nature walks,” hikes usually don’t allow time to stop and capture the moment — unless one is willing to be left behind, unnerving the guides.

This summer the SCVN hikes on Mount Lemmon have been very dry, dusty experiences minus the color of the usual mountain wildflowers. So, when flowers are spotted, inducing trance-like states, as in the case of columbines in a mountain canyon where a small stream might normally exist, some of us cannot pass up the moment connecting nature with our being in the digital world.

July rains should bring on an ever-changing kaleidoscope of wildflowers. But, for now, we feel the call of the wild to save the season by capturing the moment in a time our culture and technology are becoming more complex, more intricate, and more challenging to control.

Nature is a sphere
Revealing cosmic patterns
In all the clitter

Gathering To Watch The Sunset As The Days Grow Shorter   6 comments

Sunset 11-20-12

As the fall sunsets continue to move toward the winter solstice, our view here in the Catalina foothills each evening to more to the southwest over the Tucson Mountains. The desert temperatures drop quickly as neighbors gather to watch nature’s kaleidoscope of colors — a great time for a hot toddy with Maker’s Mark whiskey, not rum or brandy.
