SWF - Nice day for a walk

I just got back from my morning walk.  I was kind of looking for wildflowers. 

Although there were not many blooming things to see, there were lots of green things

and singing things with wings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I turned around when I got to the bridge because I didn’t feel like getting my feet wet.

On the way back I saw this group of young people on their way into the canyon.  They looked prepared to stay a while as they carried backpacks and musical instruments.  The weather forecast for this area is: Abundant sunshine. Warm.  

See what the sky looks like in other parts of the world at Skywatch Friday, hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, and Sylvia.

You did see some singing things and some green things---even if you didn't seen any blooming things. It won't be long I'll bet.

We have sunshine today... YEAH!!! The Crocuses have opened!

Your river is still flowing, I see. It shotens your walk but helps green your world.

Diane, where were your walking? Your scenery is so near ours - are we neighbors???

Diane AZ said...

Hi Brenda, I do most of my walking in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains north of Tucson. You're right, the scenery is similar yours. :)

What a great place to visit or hike. If it is warm, I would like to stay a week.

Carolyn Ford said...

What a fabulous weather report for a hike in a desert canyon. I would want to join them to see what kind of music they would be inspired to play! What a nice place to walk.

Regina said...

Great walk and looking up!
You are so blessed with such amazing surroundings.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I would have take out my shoes to cross that bridge ;-) I want to feel the water also. Cool!

Piyush said...

The sky is so blue and vivid as if it were canvas. Not a hint of clouds. AZ must be quiet dry these days.

Nice shots!

LadyFi said...

Such a vibrant blue sky and lovely scenery.

Janet said...

What beautiful shots! Certainly a place to relax and gather ones brain together! I love the clear blue sky - would love to visit one day!

I like to walk.

I enjoy the walking with you.

You will then discover a singing "thing" without wings.
