Short Hike in the Whitetank Mountains-You can always click on a picture to enlarge it!

Some members of the hiking club at Grand. I'm in front by some accident. I hope they don't expect me to lead. Ron is number four in the line up-checking his watch to see how long it takes me to catch on!

All kinds of cacti...

Big ones...

and teeny tiny little ones. Hope you understand my scientific names for these plants! Ha!

Lots of lizards. Lots of snakes too-especially Diamond Backs (Yow!) but luckily haven't seen them yet. They saw a Gila Monster a couple hikes ago. Can't wait!

The destination! How beautiful! This is a dry waterfall. Maybe in spring of some year, we will see it. There is a 12 year drought here! Wonder when it's a climate change?
I love this hiking! The hikes are rated 1-5 with 5 being strenuous. This is a 1.9-just right for me until I shape up-won't be long now!
