MWT - Around the park


Chris and I were at Reid Park Sunday morning for our son's running event. Since we would be there for a couple of hours, I decided to explore the path that goes around the park. The weather was a cool 40 F and there was still frost on some of the grassy slopes at the golf course.

I don't know what building this is but it looked old and I liked the details on it.

Starlings on a saguaro cactus in the parking lot
I got back to the north side of the park just in time to see Kevin finish running his 10K.

What an absolutely delightful series of lovely views from your world. Thanks for taking us along on your walk. Love the mosaic with detailed shots from the 'unknown' building ... the crow playing 'king of the world' ... and the starlings in the saguaro cactus especially. I appreciate your visits ... have been having trouble visiting lately myself because Mozilla keeps crashing. I have a faulty WLAN card it seems but I'm doing what I can this morning.
Hugs and blessings,

The lizard looks so real, so is my squirrel.

Wonderful shots, I love the lizard decorations. And I believe your mystery bird is a Vermillion Flycatcher and is a beautiful bird.

Jen said...

I bet the runners appreciated the cool temps.
You found a great variety on your look around, I guess all the wild life was out enjoying and appreciating the cooler temps too. :)

Another beautiful day. So nice to see that blue sky again after the wild weather that went through last week. The snow on the mountains looks pretty.

I like the composition of the starlings on the saguaro. Lots of great detail there. Beautiful mystery bird; love that color!

Congratulations to your son for completing the 10K!

Nice pics. Broadway Boulevard building detail is nice.

Rajesh said...

Great shots. The old building and the details are interesting.

Kevin doesn't even look tired at the end. There was lots to see while you waited. These shots give a good feel for the character of Tucson.

Stephanie said...

That lizard could be quite scary at night he he... I like that cute mystery bird ;-)

Cool pics and great shots as always Dianne! Have another great day.

Rosa Phoenix said...

Thank you for 'taking us to your world'. Great captures Diane. It always amazes me to see birds resting on the cactus.

Tes said...

beautiful photos! Love the colorful vermilion and those black birds in the cactus, so cute!

SquirrelQueen said...

What a wonderful place for a walk, there is so much to see. And I agree with Lindy that the blue sky is a real treat for those of us in gloomy weather country right now.

Ayie said...

A lot of interesting elements here like the lizard and most esp the bank design.

Ebie said...

I cannot pick my favorite, cause everything is beautiful in your side of the world. I am just fascinated with the weather vane.
