I am jealous. The cacti flowers burned up in the heat before I made time to take any pictures. I went on plenty mountain bike rides but never took my camera with me.

Are you in AZ?

Yes, this picture was taken in AZ. It sure is fun taking pictures of flowers.

I just recently moved to Tucson. I love this heat. Trying to discover it all here. Do you have any must see suggestions?

Hey, joe,
When you get tired of the heat and want to take a trip up into the mountains I'd suggest Silver City, New Mexico. It's about 3 and a half hours east on I-10. (exit at Lordsburg) I lived there for 16 years and could give you a list of great places to hike. A lot of them off the beaten path that most people never hear about.

Silver City is a beautiful place. It must have been hard to move away from there.

It sure was. Especially to Minnesota.

Have you ever been to the Lower Box of the Gila River?
It's between Redrock and Virden. This was scanned from an old photo. Not the greatest quality but, you get the idea.

Beautiful, Ron! No, I haven't made it there yet, but it is on my list of places to visit next time I'm in the area.

I've been to the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument though.

That is some exceptional country with some wonderful views.

Another batch of beautiful photos!
So Ron, you're not enjoying Minnesota's winters? :>)
(that's why we LOVE being snowbirds!).

Rub it in, joan, rub it in.

In a side canyon to the one pictured above there are little 1 or 2 person cliff dwellings.

Here's a cliff dwelling from the Lower Scorpion Campground area. It is on the 'Trail To The Past'...kind of off the beaten path.

The picture is a bit blurry. It was raining. I took a picture from the inside, looking out, also.

It looks like we travel in the same circles, kt.
The "off the beaten path" hikes are always the best.

Here is a cactus hanging on for dear life on the side of a water washed draw.
