|Hubby "Hugging" a Saguaro at Our Campsite|
There were great hiking trails all throughout the park. Hubby and I walked with Brewster in the morning, before the kids awoke and the weather got too hot.
There were flowers and birds everywhere. The birds, especially the quail, were pretty loud with their spring mating calls. The woodpeckers loved to bang on the metal on the electrical outlets at each campsite. At night we heard coyotes. The desert is a pretty active place this time of year!
On the way out, we passed a Maricopa County chain gang. Some of the guards were sipping cold drinks while watching the women prisoners clean up on the side of the road. I sure wouldn't want to be working out in that heat in those outfits. I wonder if it deters crime? I know I'd think twice about breaking the law in that county!
