Our Location: Empire Ranch, Sonoita, Arizona
It was cool this morning, about 50F/10C but it started warming up as soon as the light started showing in the eastern sky. A beautiful sunrise this morning and I think we may just have a spectacular sunset tonight but I'm guessing about that as I write this post.

Today we ran errands for a few hours in Sierra Vista. Groceries, a few odds and sods, fuel and such. It took us a couple of hours and we didn't hurry at all. We didn't take a single photo while we were out and about.
The Pronghorn Antelope out the dining room window. It's getting darker.
I talked to my dad last night for a while. Things are going well there but winter is coming. I also spoke with my friend Linda. We chatted for a while, laughing and remembering, and just enjoying the conversation. Hopefully Linda and hubby Randy will make it to warmer climes this winter. It's always nice to chat with Linda, we can pick up conversations right where we left off no matter how long as passed between contact.
Sunrise through the bedroom window You would think the tree is on fire...
Last night while chatting with Linda I was looking out the window hoping for a sunset which really didn't happen and I noticed off in the long grass about a half dozen Pronghorn Antelope. They didn't seem to be in any hurry and just kind of hung out, grazing here and there for about a half hour. Not close but not too far away.
It just keeps rising..... Sorry about the screen, but well....
I'm still taking photos with my phone as I can't seem to get the camera to recognize the sd card. I'm not sure I believe what the fella at Best Buy told me about my Nikon D3100 only taking a 16 GB or smaller card, but there are none to be found here and we looked in lots of places. So I think when I settle into a location for a couple of weeks I'll look for a camera shop to maybe help me out. The phone takes good photos but not nearly as good as the camera. So we'll just have to make due.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the visit.
The sky is starting to light up now... The sun is showing the dust in the air in front of the mountains.
Until next time,
Take care, be safe,
