No time for blogging today, as Dr Desert Flower, The Boy, and I are headed to Verde Canyon (link here) this morning to ride the railroad, and hopefully see some eagle nests. Federal Wildlife officials (those Jack Booted Thugs!) closed off Verde Canyon to foot and road traffic this year, so as not to disturb the threatened bald eagle breeding pairs. Only river rafters (burrrrrr this time of year!) and the 100 year old train tracks can now pass through, but neither can 'stop' within the canyon.
Any cool pics we get will be FB posted later. Might see some elk on the 2 hour drive home, since the train ride ends near dusk.
