Saturday morning walk
I went for a LONG walk yesterday over at Desert Willow. DW is the city-owned golf club/timeshare complex. It's up on top of a nice little plateau and offers gorgeous views of our local mountains and the desert beyond. I like to walk up there because it isn't crowded. Well, USUALLY it isn't crowded, but yesterday I could barely find a parking spot! So many people were out walking, but, then, too...it WAS 8:00. I'm usually done by 8:00 and I'll be heading out earlier this morning! This was the pretty view of a desert willow and some of our early-blooming desert shrubs. The forecast is for temps in the mid-70's for the next week, so our desert wildflowers should be blooming shortly! :-) Enjoy your day!
