Phoenix from the Superstitions

In the foreground, you see pools of water along a trail leading from Gold Canyon Ranch into the Superstition Mountains. In the background is Phoenix.

Almost pool weather

It's almost time to jump in the pool again, so I brought this photo from last year out to celebrate the upcoming season!

Our Lady of Guadalupe

A few months ago, I posted a photo of the old Catholic Church on Ocotillo. I don't think I ever published a picture of it's newer counterpart, Our Lady of Guadalupe, located across the street. I tried to find some history about the congregation, but on their Website, it is said they were still in the process of writing the history of the parish. I'm not sure if that means a book or just something for the Website.

These rabbits came to nibble on the grass in the shade of my yard yesterday. I was very curious about what happened to the one rabbit, his ears are so tattered. (I wish the lighting had been better.)

Nothing too exciting today....just two quads after our ride through Bull Dog Canyon.

Bull Dog Canyon

Bull Dog Canyon is located north of Queen Creek, just south of the Salt River. It's great for four wheeling, riding ORVs, horseback riding, hiking or biking, but you need a permit from the local ranger station.

Some treasure hunters believe that the Lost Dutchman's Mine is actually located here, in Bull Dog Canyon, not in the Superstitions.

Abandoned RV

I've had this photo for a long time and haven't published it because it's unsightly. But, right there, at the base of the San Tan Mountains, there's this abandoned RV with broken windows.

Continuing the bird theme...a duck from the Gilbert Riparian Institute

Creepy bird

I don't know what type of bird this is, but I think he is a little creepy looking. He's another one I saw while trying to find a letterbox at the Gilbert Riparian Institute last weekend.

Goose "family" walking on a dry lake bed at the Gilbert Riparian Institute...The water had been drained from the lakes for one reason or another

New York 3

30 Rock: It was great to see some of the iconic places that appear so often on TV and film, like the Atlas in front of 30 Rockerfeller.

New York 2

Chrysler Building
Such a contrast to our wide open spaces in Queen Creek...

New York 1

I hope no one minds that I post a few photos of New York. I was there recently and took a few shots that I like. I'll update my Queen Creek photos in the meantime.
