Two days ago we took a drive into Paradise Valley for a short hike up a portion of Hogback Ridge.
I turn behind me to the east for more mountain views..
Hiking poles that is..
Steep, rocky sections.
we stop to take in the scene, soak up the sun and catch our breath before heading back down.
It gets a bit chilly..
We hear and see hundreds of Sandhill Crane
They must be on their way south to Arizona..
We will be in Arizona in January…
Hope to see them again.
