Our good friends from Porter, Texas, Ken and Mary Harris,
spent several days with us before continuing the western swing through Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico.

Like the mellow rays of the departing sun,
it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.”

The Mountain

The mountain sat upon the plain
In his eternal chair,
His observation omnifold,
His inquest everywhere.

The seasons prayed around his knees,
Like children round a sire:
Grandfather of the days is he,
Of dawn the ancestor.

— Emily Dickinson

the story of love is hello and goodbye…until we meet again”

What I see at this moment
consists of reviewing
memories and expectations —
I am only partially
aware of the present.

Profound commitment to a dream does not
confine or constrain: it liberates.
Even a difficult, winding path can lead
to your goal if you follow it to the end.

(Click on any image to see a larger view in a slideshow format.)

First time on Mt. Lemmon since last November. At 9,200 feet only a few wildflowers are in the beginning stages of blooming. On this Memorial Day in Tucson, it’s 100 degrees, but it was a pleasant 65 degrees on Mt. Lemmon.

The SCVN Friday Hikes begin this Friday on Mt. Lemmon.

Naturalist David Dean conducts Wildflower Hike. Click here for dates and reservation information.
