We had a couple more hikes around Boulder City... in between blasts of wind and spurts of rain.
As indifferent as the weather is around here this year, it seems to be as bad or worse in Phoenix and Tucson. I guess we'll hang out till things settle down. It's tolerable; I guess I'm anxious to be camping in my former backyard, amid majestic saguaros, gangly ocotillo, and aromatic creosote bush.

We happened by several Desert Big Horn rams grazing while hiking the bike path...

What skinny front legs they have....
Then a few other desert critters, larger than life and scattered amid a most gorgeous rock garden.
With the weekend's NFL games coming up, we moved to Government Wash, a Boondock where there was decent TV reception from Vegas.Thanks to a tip from Gayle-gone-quiet last year, we had another pleasant hike in nearby "Bowl of Fire" before the game yesterday... a spectacular volcanic display of all my favorite Crayon colors, orange and red, with hints of lavender. Stay tuned.
