Today we got out of bed and said, it feels like walking weather. So we got into our shoes and windbreakers (and I wore my pink fleece) and headed over to the Hike and Bike.
There was a bike rider there when we arrived, just pumping up his tires. We saw him riding later.
It was about 8:10 a.m. and the sky was cloudy and there was a bit of light fog into the bargain. No wind.
There were more people there later, but when we started out we convinced ourselves that nobody was there. (Silly idea--we saw 4 - 6 bike riders and a few walkers.)
Wildlife seen: Roadrunner (possibly saw him twice), male cardinal, green jay, chachalaca on ground, several cottontail rabbits, possible coyote. Also the ducks that hang out in the irrigation canal, and a flock of tree ducks that flew overhead.
|About the first bend in the trail. (This is before the stretch where we once saw a herd of javelinas running.)|
|The irrigation canal. There was a duck, in the distance, but it doesn't show in this picture.|
|When we got home, I found this little red guy watching me from the faucet!|
