We often travel far to see an ancient site sometimes asking a local for a review only to find that they haven’t even heard of their local attraction. We were surprised until we realized we had done the SAME THING in our hometown. Since our revelation we are determined to explore more sites nearby In fact we had a lot of fun recently at the Signal Hill Petroglyphs located in the Saguaro National Park West just few miles away.
We took a picnic and enjoyed a few little animals and birds. Great place to enjoy a picnic lunch at the well kept covered tables.
Just to the east is an easy path leading to the petroglyphs.
They are said to have been created by the Hohokam people. We stop to to imagine what the artist was trying to convey with these symbols.Looking over the valley from this site I can see how it would have been chosen as a beacon for travelers. I have to say it’s been fun discovering adventure right in our own back yard.
Feeling like I was wasting this beautiful Arizona weather we decided to go for a quick hike today. It almost ended our lives. Oncoming truck swerved out to pass heading for us head on. G slammed on the brakes and swerved and I tell you it was only INCHES away. The car he was passing had faces of shock, we were shocked too. We talked about it way too much as neither of us could believe we are still alive. I think it is a perfect metaphor for the beginning of 2018. Hang on it’s going to be a hell of a ride!
Slicing this piece of wood I thought it looked like a pear. I was inspired to find a partridge to nest in the knothole. Here’s the latest series Added some new ornaments to the saguaro and cross series too. Etsy: DesertWindsGallery
Overheard while making pie filling- “Is there nutmeg in this?” “Yes”. “My nose is so sensitive I should be a drug sniffing dog.”
HAPPY THANKSGIVING Y’ALL!
How many times has this happened to you? It’s late & you know your own house so why turn on the light right? WELL becuase out of the corner of your eye you COULD see a giant white ghost lurking in the dark! Actually it’s a pool cover rolled up in a bag that nevertheless scared the holy poop out of me. UPS delivered the giant box after dark so G opened it up & put it in the kitchen to take out at first light. THE REST of the story is that about a half hour later, I shufled back to the kitchen, left the light off and jumped again! Stupid haunted pool cover. MORAL of the STORY: While it’s fun to have short term memory when rewatching a Netflix series, forgetting there is a spooky haunted pool cover in the kitchen is recipe for multiple frights.
