Around Home

What's going on with all the kayaks in front of our house.  Did we put in a lake?

No they belong to our WIN friends who we had over for a happy hour event.
What fun!

Also we took a hike with blogger friends John and Carol.  We began our adventure at the Peralta trailhead (east of Gold Canyon, turn north off of US60 between MM 204 and 205, following Peralta signs.)  The Peralta trail is one of the most popular trails in the area and the views begin in the parking lot.

But today we decided to take the Dutchman's Trail, which also begins at this location, and leave the crowds behind.

There are a couple of stream crossings which are always a surprise in the desert.

And plenty of nice scenery along the way.
We went about 2 1/2 miles before turning around.  It was a gorgeous day made even better with good friends.


  1. Like that view from the parking lot!

  2. It looks like a great day out. The desert looks interesting too, greener than I thought it would be.

  3. Know how handy Ron is, I would have totally believed you if you had said he put in a lake! :c)

  4. WOW I wonder what the neighbors thought...lol
    I would love to take that hike with y'all...looks awesome!!
