Catching Up Is Hard To Do!

Last week, Pat and I went camping at the Chiricachua National Monument in Southern Arizona.  It was perfect weather, no wind, cool nights and warm days.  Duffy spent the time at “Goin’ to Grandma’s, a Bed and Biscuit kennel.  We signed him up for the Doggy Day Camp so he could visit with other little dogs.  No pictures of Duffy but here’s a couple of our camp.ImageImageImage

We hiked down to the old Faraway Ranch house that has been restored.  I found some “Stairs and Steps” for the Feb. Photo Challenge and an unusual window for the March Photo Challenge.ImageImageImageImage

In regards to the Photo Challenge I proposed in January, I’m finding the subject matter not that inspiring for me.  I’m more in tune with nature. I’ll see what happens next month.

This is also alpaca shearing season.  I helped Maria at Golden Dreams Alpaca Ranch yesterday and managed to keep my fingers intact.

Before shearing…..






Pat and I will be helping Lisa at Thunder Mountain Alpacas at the end of the month and possibly one more the first of May.  Aren’t they so cute! 

See ya,
