Day 67

We went north a bit to see some birds at the Red Rocks State Park.  There were some but it might be a tad early for humming birds, or it was too early in the day.

So we drove on up to Slide Rock State Park (we didn’t go in…$7 per person!).  Then we decide to have lunch on the way back through Sedona.  At the Oaxaca…

The chips and salsa were good!

The place has a rooftop area and it wasn’t busy.

The food was great.  I had the Sopiapilla Mexicali.  There is a large Sopaipilla under there, with spicy pork and sauce and cheese and beans and  refried beans and rice and other stuff.  I managed to eat it all but I am not having any dinner tonight.  The Dailylife Wife had a delicious Chimichanga, and she managed to bring half back for dinner.

Great Food!  Great Service! Great (big) Price!  Well nothing down here seems very cheap, especially in Sedona…this, though, we just don’t understand.  Looks cool!

Day 65

It is kind of appropriate that the Moonrise on the last day of February is followed by the Moonset on the first day of March!  The Moon over Jerome, Arizona!

Day 62

I stopped down by the Verde River on the way back from the Moonset.  There were a lot of critters there!  Unfortunately, here are the not-even-close-to-also-rans…

Those Red-breasted Mergansers, below.

This guy walked a few feet behind me and got into the brush.

(Okay, okay, I am not really complaining about him not stoping for a few snaps…)

Just as I arrived and shut the truck off this guy flew over.  The 400mm lens was way too long and I just couldn’t get him in focus before he flew off.  I saw him once more as I was trying to leave…I jumped out of the truck but he was gone again.

Day 61

I stopped down by the Verde River on the way back from the Moonset.  There were a lot of critters there!

Red-winged Blackbird


Indeed, there were actually more to see, but there were not successfully photographed…

Day 60

Another fine Moonset near Jerome…


This was edited on a program named PhotoScape X.  It is a nice program, and free, but I may re-edit this when I get my new version of Elements installed.  Not enough bandwidth here; I may have to go sit at McDonalds…

Frohe Geburtstage!

Happy Birthday Brother Dennis!

A couple of days late, here, anyway…

Have a Great Flight!

Day 59
