We're used to seeing quail and doves and lots of other birds, but a roadrunner in the backyard is not an every day occurrence. This guy was there for quite a while, and I got about 10 photos, but this is the only one where he's moving and actually looks like a roadrunner.
After a day of house and yard work and a Costco run in Tucson, we settled in to enjoying some Green Valley amenities. We discovered that our favorite fitness room at Santa Rita Springs has been enlarged and updated- a nice surprise. The pool at this facility is also my favorite, as it's kept pretty warm and has a lovely view of the mountains.
Today we joined the hiking club (an every Thursday event) for a hike in the Santa Rita mountains-just a 20 minute drive from our house. It was a great outing, and the weather was perfect. It got hot in the afternoon- 88- but was cooler in the morning and we had some good tree cover.
