San Tan Regional Park

We're heading for a colder climate tomorrow, so we wanted to fully appreciate today's sunny and 60 degree weather. We haven't been hiking lately, but our blogger friends Carol and John suggested meeting at San Tan Regional Park.
We had a nice hike, four miles and not at all strenuous. In other words, not like the climb up Picacho Peak that the four of us did almost two years ago. If you want to see a challenge, click here. But back to today, a walk in the park was just perfect, since we hadn't seen Carol and John for a year and had lots to say.

I thought this cactus looked interesting with the back-lighting, but my photography doesn't quite capture it.

This park is popular with our four-footed friends too.
After our exercise, we attacked the pizza buffet at Pizza Hut. Yum! And we still didn't run out of things to talk about. What a fun time!

In preparation for our flight to Denver tomorrow, I thought I'd do a little Photoshopping to see how we look in the snow. Humm. Maybe we should pack coats.


  1. Love your holiday card.
    Merry Christmas to you both!

  2. I see you need a spare horse to ride in the desert.

    Merry Christmas to you and Ron. Looking forward to more of your adventures in the New Year.

  3. Merry Christmas to you both ... be careful not to catch a chill with all that snow and no coats :-))))

  4. Love the Christmas card. Maybe we'll have you make our card next year!

  5. I LOVE that shot of the backlit cacti its gorgeous...
    My sis lives in CO, but not Denver...they had snow for the second day today...SO take your coat for sure..and ENJOY your trip Happy Holidays!!

  6. Hey, that is mom's Christmas card. You weren't standing in the street on the card I received from her.
    Have a great time in Colorado. Sure miss that place.

  7. "rode through the desert on a horse with no name".

    Have a great beak and a Merry Christmas.
