I have yet to repair our two flat front tires, so we hike. Whatever...doesn't matter. Ever notice that people who hold the lowest expectations are generally the most highly satisfied in life?
The west is well-watered this winter! Saguaros are borderline obese, and there's a warm lime-green glow to the desert. Brittle bush are crowned with yellow flowers, as poppies run riot on sun-faced slopes in various hues of startling orange. Ocotillos tips burst in blowtorch red blossoms. Throw in cooler-than-average temps, cerrulean skies and a smattering of clouds...priceless.
