The bunnies are always my favourites. I just love their cute innocence.

I saw a lot of birds on my trip to Tucson, however, they were all in the aviary at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum!

Posted my pictures of Gates Pass Road today. If I had realized what a twisty, scary road that was I think I would've rethought the drive and come up Kinney instead.

The wildflowers are just amazing. This week I found Scorpion Weed near Kitt Peak. What a great flower on a plant! I don't want this weather to end. Your pics get me excited to do more outside before the heat:)
