Water Water Everywhere!

On Thursday and Friday I tried to hike in Sabino Canyon, (this link provides hydrology information about Sabino Creek) only to find the bridges knee-deep in flowing water - worse that a month ago. Here's a picture of the Sabino Lake Dam. No wonder!
On Saturday I went to Saguaro East National Park and hiked the Wild Horse Trail - only a small waterfall along the way and the natural "Wild Horse Tank" at the end. Much drier than Sabino Canyon. Yeah!

Palm Springs Too

We had a geat weekend in Palm Springs - tennis, great breakfasts and dinners, snow and swimming.  Wendy's post linked everything, so I'm just adding a few pictures."Beary" had the best seat in the house.

The ice cream was good too.

Wenday and Lucy at the top of the tram and swimming after we got back to our motel.

Las Vegas Trip

We drove to Las Vegas Thursday. On Friday, we went to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area about 15 miles west of Las Vegas.  It was pretty cool with  wild rock colorations - sometimes red on top

and sometimes red on the bottom

We also drove across Hoover Dam and thought it would be cool to take a dam tour. I can only picture Chevy Chase!  We should have toured on Thursday because there were TOOOOO many people there on Saturday. Oh well, it was fun to drive across anyway.
