Oh, yes, clouds...part of the reason why we moved to Arizona...
So, continuing on my loop back home, I took the Rillito "river" trail, which gives you views of the majestic Santa Catalinas and the 'river.' It was flowing a few weeks ago. Really. I promise.
No waves lapping at the shore as I pedaled today...
I loved riding my bike as a kid, but I got away from it in middle- and high-school...Then, one summer while in college, I visited a friend up in Québec City, and we went biking one day--From the old city, dominated by the Château Frontenac on Cap Diamant, up the St.-Lawrence for quite a few miles to the Montmorency waterfall.
Yesterday afternoon, we did see some flowing water along some trails in Sabino Canyon:
...and the wildflowers continue:
A couple of days ago, we looked out our living-room window, through the curtain, and saw this:
Decidedly not a hummingbird.
I carefully moved the curtain to the side, trying not to scare the bird away, and got a better look. A Gila Woodpecker was sipping the nectar! I wonder if he's the same guy who was pecking on our roof--which is tile--the other day? Has the nectar fermented?
And that's all the minutiae for tonight.
Signing off from our corner in Tucson...
