We are really enjoying our stay here at the park.
The weather has been beautiful..
high 70's during the day,
and chilly at night, in the 40's.
Bright sunny, blue skies.
Yesterday we took a bike ride around the campground loop..
..and to the ranger station to find out some hiking trails.
Doesn't this cactus look like a dog sitting begging?
We took a short walk up a trail,
and we will do that sometime later..
We came back and hung up the bird feeder...
Today we took a drive up to Saguaro National Park.
It's not a long drive from the campground,
but it is a beautiful view from the top!
We took Mr Gnome for the ride today,
he has always wanted to see what cactus was like..
He was not disappointed!
There are all kinds of varieties..
Even George was interested in them..
We hiked a couple trails..
We took a picnic lunch, and sat in one of areas..
and watched all the birds and squirrels..

It was a great end to a great day!
