  1. We went hiking in Catalina last year--good place for birds. The campground looks great.

  2. gorgeous. It's really an escape to see these photos. At least the sun finally came out here. Seeing blue sky again was wonderful......nothing like what you're seeing, but I'll take it!

  3. Pretty! What's the weather like, temperature-wise?

    I'm curious--are you feeding the birds or does the campsite owners do it? The birds look grateful!

  4. Beautiful evening scenes Dawn and some great shots of birds.

  5. Arizona is so awesome. You have to love a state with Lesser Goldfinch and Bridled Titmouse!

  6. Dawn, you are almost in my backyard! I'm still a little south of you but I hope we can get together. What do you say?

  7. Looks like Heaven to me, this time of year, at least. :)
