Road Runner BLM, Quartzsite, Arizona
This morning dawned chilly but sunny. The day heated up nicely as it went along. It was a day spent doing a number of little things around the Igloo and the Dogsled, a nice walk this morning and some time on line doing some research.
A few saguaro photos from Road Runner BLM. At least three top knots on this guy. He's the interesting looking fella with the three top knots in the first pic. . A few photos are of this guy and the debris at his feet.
Shortly after 3:30 pm we all climbed into the Dogsled and headed off to La Posa South for another visit with fellow Canadians, Dave and his lovely charming bride Cheryl (from Alberta) and Bill and his lovely wife Patsy , who hail from our home province of Ontario. We had a lot of laughs, and the time slipped past very quickly. Bill and Patsy left first and we departed quite a while later. It was nice to meet Dave and Cheryl this year, we hope our paths cross again in the future.
You can see the ribs are full of some kind of pulp. It look like flaky paper thin hide, but it's tough and still holding together even in death.
The spines are still sharp, and you can see the ribs of the Saguaro.

Thanks for following along, I hope you enjoyed the visit.
L to R: Cheryl, Deb D, Riley, Bill, Patsy, Tom and Dave.
Until next time.....
Take care, stay safe,
Whoa! That's a lot of saguaros that are past their prime. All in our area?ReplyDelete
Nice visit with fellow Canucks.
It is always nice to visit with folks, even if they aren’t fellow Canucks.Delete
The saguaros are all with in a short walk of our campsite.
Great to see you all together on this beautiful day. Starting tomorrow it will be great weather. Now the weather is turning for the better, Yuma and I may stick around for awhile and do some exploring.ReplyDelete
It was a great day, we missed you in the circle and even mentioned that fact. Take a ride out to the BLM road and see what it’s like for future use! In better weather it may be the place park in the seasons ahead. I mean since you are out anyway!Delete
Great visit, conversation and laughs. Glad we could all get together again. Safe travels.ReplyDelete
We had a great time as well. The chatter and laughter were easy and very enjoyable. Thanks Bill.Delete
It certainly has been a different winter ... makes us appreciate the "good" winters even more.ReplyDelete
Very true. My grandfather used to say,” If you don’t have bad days, how will you know to appreciate the good ones?” I think we have learned enough this winter to appreciate the good days for a while at least.Delete
I'm happy that we were all able to fit another visit in this winter.ReplyDelete
You and Riley be safe in your journey!
We enjoyed the visit very much. Thanks.Delete
Interesting and beautiful pictures. It looks like the weather is turning towards warm days.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elva. We could use some warmer days.Delete
Gee I hate watching your clock run down :( What an awesome happy hour once again!ReplyDelete
It’s good and bad to see the numbers moving, we are enjoying our time here seeing friends and meeting new ones but we look forward to getting back home and settling in with friends and family there as well.Delete
Happy hour was fun, lots of good conversation and laughs.
