Saturday Snapshot - February 25

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

The last few (several?) SS posts featured pictures "from the archive," some of which I had posted in earlier SS posts.  The fact is that this time of the year just isn't that interesting!  The weather is bad and the kids are busy in school.  So, there you go.

Now, however, I actually have new pictures!  Sunny new pictures!  VACATION PICTURES!  Of course, the ones I share today (and probably more over the following 4 weeks) will look familiar--because we've visited them several times.  Oh well...at least we can see how things change!

So, today we're going back to Saguaro National Park in Tucson, near where my parents live.  This National Park is divided into 2 districts and these pictures or from the Rincon district.  On this trip, we were able to get out and do some light hiking instead of just driving through.  This, of course, continues my love fest with the National Park service that I talked about a few weeks ago (here and here).  It is ironic that as much as we love the parks, the one we visit the most (this one) is 1500 miles away--especially when my husband's father, who we visit often, lives only a few hours from two other National Parks!

Apparently cycling through the park is not for the faint of heart!

Heading out on the Mica View Trail

If you thought cyclist and pedestrians are bad, good luck with the desert tortoises!

Obligatory family picture--thanks to the random stranger willing to play photographer...


My daughter wasn't a fan of the Mica View trail, but she loved Javalina Rocks!

Next week, we're heading back to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum!
