Oh, what a wonderful day yesterday! The wind had died down to a gentle breeze, the sun shone brightly, and my world was full of green!

This is the first time I've ever filled up a chip in my camera!

We'll be going back up later in the week, earlier in the day, hoping to get some animals.

So now I need to go through all my pics, and occasionally, I'll post some, along with some interesting information about Ramsey Canyon.

I love the tree with the vines.

You DID post the pictures! Very nice. I am sure this sounds like I am stereotyping but I didn't expect to see so much green! This was in the canyon.,..right?

Kelly- Truly a deep breath. I hope the same for you!

Tricia-Thank you! So much green, I could eat it!

Pam-I did too. Made me look around to see what might have climbed it, but didn't see anything. Must have been many years ago.

Dan-That's the incredible thing about the mountains here. They are full of cottonwood, junipers, maples, and remember, they get lots of rain in the summer during monsoon. We're at 4600 ft. so it's different than the regular desert. I'll post more tomorrow.

It's lovely and green over here just now as well - it makes the heart sing doesn't it.

SS-It does indeed!

I love tree tops and dappled sun.
