Since it's almost over, I'm catching up with some January happenings.  On Saturday, Jan. 5 we joined  a group sponsored by BEYOND  and hiked in the Catalinas, in Oracle State Park.  It was a day of outside events all around Tucson to commenorate the people who were injured and killed in the January shooting 2 years ago.  It was a little frosty when we met the group at 8:30.
 It was a beautiful day and there were about 30 people who chose the same hike.
About 5 days later we went to Santa Barbara for a few days.   We had a good time with Wendy, John, Henry, Mae, and Lucy, but only Lucy made it to the camera.
We stayed in Solvang, which is close to Leslie's barn.  Lucy spent a night with us so she and I could go riding in the morning and, although it was 27 that morning, she really wanted to test the hot tub.

We spent a nice quiet Christmas here in Arizona.
We had a fire (although we didn't need one) and then took a short hike in Sabino Canyon.
