The Rincon Mountains in the Monsoon Season
page 1 of 2
Here's the news for Saturday, July 23, 2011.
Nadia and I decided to go for a walk in the western foothills of the Rincon Mountains.
They're about a 20 minute drive from our house.
It's a beautiful walk out in the wilderness.
But you've got to be careful of the dangerous, thorny plants.
Here Nadia demonstrates how not to touch a Saguaro.
We've been having some rains; the creosote plants were flowering like crazy.
Down in the lower elevations the washes were a bit dry.
A little higher up, though, this wash had water running in it!
Farther on up this wash was a cave that Nadia knew about with water flowing from it.
Nadia knows her way around these mountains; she used to work as a wilderness guide.
It had been a hot, dry hike.
Nadia sampled the water and cooled off a bit.
She looked up and saw that I was taking a little refreshment, too.
See the conclusion of this exciting story!
