Posted on Mon, 01-Jan-2018Wed, 10-Jan-2018 by pamHeading to Sabino Canyon, Arizona Retracing our steps, we picked up the MINI in Denver, the Travato in Kansas, and returned to Lake Meredith to catch up on sleep. http://tealsky.com/2016/11/11/oklahoma-texas-panhandles/ We revisited White Sands NM for a beautiful hike on the dunes. http://tealsky.com/2015/12/09/white-sands-new-mexico/ We camped near by on this picturesque pond. Near Las Cruces, we enjoyed this spot in the Organ Mountains NM for a few nights – meeting up with an architecture friend for a Rotary event. First time here in the Travato http://tealsky.com/2015/12/08/organ-mountains-new-mexico/ Back at our site #2 in Sabino Canyon, enjoying happy hour with Site #1 friends, co-volunteers. Last time we saw them: http://tealsky.com/2017/05/22/flying-from-ft-collins-colorado/ The sunsets are memorable looking east with the saguaros in the foreground.

We had to try three servings just to make sure it was as good as it looked! A Merry Christmas to You Saguaro Nativity. Sabino Creek is very low with no water flowing, just a few little reflection pools. This coati was hanging around one of the little pools with 4 other family members – we sure enjoyed watching them forage! Some incredibly nice fall color as we started our work routine up the canyon. Hiking on another day we found this pop up art installation of balanced rocks. This must take a lot of patience but it was very fun to come across it. A peaceful way to start 2018.
