Life In The Fast Lane

February 8, 2018

Now I don’t normally do life in the fast lane, but yesterday turned out to be one of those days. There was so much going on that I couldn’t keep track of things. I would start to do one thing and then another popped up that took priority over the previous chore and consequently nothing […]


A Conscious Choice

February 3, 2018

Throughout our lives, we make millions of choices and decisions, but how many of us actually make a conscious choice for each of those decisions. From the time we are little our lives are dominated by choices. Some sources claim that people make 35,000 decisions a day. So, if we sleep 6 hours a day, that […]


I Heard The Raven Call

January 22, 2018

I heard the raven call today and although some say that it sounds hoarse and harsh, to me it is music in the making. He walks beside me and in his glistening coat of black, cocks his head to one side as if he hears what I cannot. To me… Ravens are the messenger A […]


Enough Is Enough!

December 2, 2017

After getting home from the desert and being all hot and warm we came back to the rain of the west coast. Being without rain all summer, these downpours are much needed to fill up reservoirs, top up the water levels and replenish the earth. But did it all have to come at once? It’s […]


Day 15 – Camp Verde to Phoenix, AZ

November 21, 2017

Not a lot to report today as we made our way from Camp Verde to Phoenix, AZ. We stopped at a couple of places and but basically, we drove to Phoenix as we are flying home tomorrow. Flying home to rain and here the temperature is just going up with no rain in sight. Ah […]


Day 14 – Camp Verde, AZ

November 20, 2017

Today we just stayed around Camp Verde and had a bit of a downtime day. Went back to the Montezuma’s Castle as Rob wanted to buy a flute after listening to the flute player. The flute is the oldest know instrument and he’s always wanted to play something musical. There is a story around here […]

We have finally come full circle driving from Payson to Camp Verde, AZ. If you have been following our trip you’ll know what I mean. Here’s a link to the first post. After leaving Payson we headed to Tonto Natural Bridge State Park. Having been there before, we thought we knew what to expect, but there […]


Day 12 – Willcox to Payson, AZ

November 18, 2017

Traveled from Willcox to Payson, AZ today. The day started off a little cooler at 52 degrees and it actually felt quite nice after all the heat. It soon warmed up the mid 70’s and the temperature was perfect. The first place we stopped at was Dankworth Pond State Park which is just 12 miles from Safford […]


Day 11 – Tombstone to Willcox, AZ

November 17, 2017

Tombstone to Willcox, AZ is one of the greatest birding areas in southeastern Arizona. Of course, that is only my opinion. Lots of hawks, ducks, and sandhill cranes dot the countryside as well as numerous passerines that winter here. After visiting the town of Tombstone for a look see we headed out and turned left on […]


Day 10 – Nogales to Tombstone, AZ

November 16, 2017

Today we went from Nogales to Tombstone, AZ and it was a 2-B day. Great Birthday and Good Birding. After breakfast, we drove to Patagonia Lake State Park. This is a place that we go to every time we are in Arizona as it is so pretty and the lake is full of birds. Perfect spot […]
