WALNUT CANYON ARIZONA

On our way to Phoenix we visited Walnut Canyon, a beautiful piece of nature. You could see where people lived in the old days, they just had a hole in a mountain, that must have been really uncomfortable !

Have a great week all !!

A WALK IN THE PARK

Near Flagstaff we found a nature reserve and as we are always on the lookout for birds and other wildlife we stopped and walked through the park. There was still snow on the ground here and there so we had to be carefull as we are not 18 anymore…

THESE ANIMALS WERE THERE BUT WE DIDN’T SEE ANY OF THEM ONLY A FEW BIRDS BUT FOR THE ANIMALS TO SHOW IT IS BEST TO GO THERE EARLY IN THE MORNING OR LATE IN THE AFTERNOON BUT AS WE WERE PASSING HERE ON OUR WAY BACK FROM THE GRAND CANYON IT WAS TOO EARLY IN THE AFTERNOON BUT NEVER THE LESS IT WAS A PLEASANT WALK !

Thanks for stopping buy, I hope you all have a great day.
