If you know where to look, you can see Snoopy lying on his back on top of the rocks. Here he is with his feet to the far right, his little tummy, and his snout topped by his little nose. We were told the tall rock to the left is Lucy watching over him, but I think that's getting a bit carried away.
On our final hike up Boynton Canyon, I finally made it to 4 miles. Once again, it was a pretty level hike which headed up a beautiful canyon. The only problem was the resort in the view for the first mile.
Ron spotted this cave that looks like the remains of a Native American site.
I didn't expect to see lupine in the desert.
Our final adventure before the weather turned really nasty for our last few days was a visit to the Sedona wastewater treatment plant. It doesn't sound too appealing, I know, but they have made a nice bird sanctuary out of it. We enjoy very amateur bird watching. I love the trills of the red-winged blackbirds.
And we were thrilled to spot this very yellow little bird - I'm guessing some kind of warbler.
But the highlight of my day was seeing this ruddy duck with his blue bill for breeding season.
(Sorry for the very poor pictures, but I'm just using a little point and shoot camera, after all. There were lots of other ducks and birds that were just specks in the camera.)
During our stay, we ran into our friend Randy The Poet.

Randy is a thinker who is interested in everything and everybody. As the WINs and many others are aware, he puts his thoughts into poems that are witty, insightful, poignant, and always entertaining. He has created a book of his best and it's available as a paperback here or as a kindle book here for 99 cents! He kindly gave me a copy since one of the poems is about me. LOL
