We spent a week in SE Arizona, on a birding tour. I don’t have any pictures of my outfits. Everyday I wore Columbia everyday nylon hiking pants, Salomon hiking shoes, a Tilley hat, and then various tees. It was ostensibly a hummingbird tour, but you’ll notice I have practically no pictures of them. Those little devils are fast! They had had a tremendous monsoon season. The B&B owner told us the rushing creek by our room had been dry for three years. The wildflowers were gorgeous. We got as high as 8400 feet in elevation, and it reminded me of the Rockies. After suffocating in wildfire smoke for the past few weeks, the clean air was delightful.
