February 18, 2017, Prescott- This weekend being a holiday weekend (President’s Day), I had penciled in a hike or two. Lo and behold, the rains have come! We have to lick this drought thing somehow, though, so here I sit.
Taxes got done, though, and I have a chance to honour a couple of friends who are moving to California. There will be a gathering for them, tomorrow, at 1 PM. A friend from Oklahoma will be here, tomorrow afternoon and evening. Monday will take me down to Phoenix, for a wellness appointment, and I will get in a first hike on the Maricopa Trail afterward. It will give me a good indication of just how the rain has affected the Sonora Desert, perhaps for the last time until Fall, depending on how warm March and April turn out to be.
Life always manages to bring a full course to my table, whether I’m at work, on the road, or just chilling here in our lovely sky island. Some say that this is exactly what will keep me going, for years to come. We’ll see about that, but I know it won’t ever be dull.
