Monday Morning Walk May 16 – 365 – 136

Monday morning was glorious. Blue sky, warm sun, gentle breeze; you couldn’t have asked for a nicer morning in which to walk.

cactus bloom

May is my favorite month here in southeast Arizona. The days finally warm up to the 80s, vegetation gets green, and everything blooms. Here is another variety of cactus in blossom.

The wash that divides our neighborhood from the one to the south. During the monsoons, this actually has water in it at times!


You can see from the size of the drainage hole that a fair amount of water is expected. There is also a hiking trail that begins up towards the top right of the picture. You can hike through the wash area down to the next major street. We have hiked it a couple of times, but so many people use it with their dogs and also horses that you really have to watch where you walk.

And panning slight to the right, from south to southwest, looking at the Huachuca Mountains. The view of these mountains is something that I will definitely miss when we move away.

    Really like the yellow flowers! Amazing seeing the size of the culvert and then dry dirt.
