Bird watching has become a new past time for me while staying here at Lake Havasu. I've been going for a daily morning bird walk for an hour since mid-January. About twice a week I've been going on a guided bird walk in the state park next to where I'm staying. The walk is lead by volunteer Jim Scott on Wednesday through Sunday. Thanks to Jim I've seen 52 kinds of birds. You can visit his blog at: cascaderamblings.blogspot.com/ .

The desert is getting really green around Havasu because of the rain we had a couple weeks ago. But I'm not seeing many flowers... now I'm sort of afraid the flowers won't be here until after I leave in a couple of weeks. I ran across what I thought was a Mexican Poppy on yesterday's hike but now I'm thinking that's not what it really is.

My brother and sister-in-law have been visiting and we're getting out for lots of hikes. Everybody got to slide down this dry waterfall...
On the hike out we ran across these mountain sheep...
I never had them let me get this close.
