Eagle Nest State Park | New Mexico
Mornings are pretty here and I have been out taking hikes in different areas of the lake. This is a white pelican and he has black on his wings that you only see when he's flying.  I have made several attempts to get a good photo of these, but they can see ...

Cimarron | New Mexico
I set out for a day trip to a nearby town, but before I left Eagle Nest, I saw some of these critters in a field and stopped to take photos.  Cute little guys, I think they may be alpaca.   This was my view as I was leaving town.     The weather was perfect...

Heron Lake State Park | New Mexico
   Ospreys are in the southwest as well as places like Florida -  I was surprised to find them here.  I found a nest that I was able to photograph, after waiting patiently. She then "flew the coop" after staring at me intently, wishing I would go away.    T...

From the desert to the conifers.....

Titan Missle Museum | Green Valley | Arizona
  This facility is the only one left of the Titan ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile) facilities around the States during the Cold War.  All the other ones were deactivated by 1981.  I guess we're not going to know what is in the Titan Time Capsule un...

Tohono Chul | Tucson | Arizona
    Spring is when cactus blooms come out - in many different colors and sizes.  It was a perfect time to visit this botanical garden.    There are those plants who have not put out flowers, a few of which I have not seen in my time wandering out in the des...

Pima Air & Space Museum | Tucson | Arizona
  This little plane was the cutest thing at the museum - only 9 feet long and 6 feet wide. It's called the Starr Bumble Bee.  Cute, but I'm not sure I want to ride in it.   They had all sorts of aircraft here, even some hanging from the ceiling.   And littl...
