Thanks for the shout outs!
K2, having milestone goals gets me on the rower on days I might otherwise decide to skip.
Dan, you always find the clever graphics. I used to be a fan of what Ed called "the Jack Bauer happy hour."

Whoooosh! That's the sound of you and the erg flying through yet ANOTHER month!

Image Red Bird of Paradise
Apparently there is another kind of bird of paradise, one not endemic to Arizona. Perhaps that is the one the song referred to when the lyrics said " May the bird of paradise fly up your nose!" These bushes are red bird of paradise - the sorry looking prickly pear is not seeming to be reveling in paradise. The bird of paradise gets to be about 8x8 ft, and is always a welcome bit of color among the desert brown. If ever there was an environment where you sometimes feel like you dropped in on a place in a parallel universe, this part of Arizona with its saguaro and many other types of cacti, is certainly a place like that. And the lizards...lordy! The ground seems to move with them!

Yes, it was a bunny trail of the mind!

BikeErg World Sprints (RIP - thinking of Darryl B who always posted in multicolors!)
July 6-10, 2022

So, bike ergers! Get a few laps in before you go for your championship 4K!

On a quick walk, really like seeing the many different cacti - birds were flying in and out of the holes in the main trunk of the saguaro.

I've been looking for the owls, and had finally spotted the older great horned owl (not in this photo), when something about the way the branch was propped up suggested that maybe that part wasn't a branch. Sure enough, just after I grabbed this photo, this young owl flew off into one of the trees. I didn't realize that they stayed light colored for quite this long, but you can see the coloration streaks are starting to change. A cool opportunity, and the dogs were very patient while I was trying to determine whether it was a photo to take or not! For all the things that change in our worlds, it is good to see that the hunting grounds are productive enough that the owls return ... and they bring their babies!
