Final Shots of the Patagonia-Sonoita Preserve

Here I show off my considerable photography skills, I mean isn't this just a great photo? With the path and the clouds... good stuff.

I'm sorry, which direction am I supposed to go?

Patagonia-Sonoita Nature Preserve-wow!

Kelly taking in (and being part of) the scenery

Shot from the scenic route on the way, after we passed some border patrol vehicles! We're only about 45 minutes from the Mexican Border here.

Are they yellow flowers? Fruit? New Growth? You be the judge.

One of the few perennial streams in southern Arizona. 4 different species of fish live in it, including one on the endangered list. No fishing here I guess.

Here we have the chia hippo in all his glory. Surely he will meet a nice girl chia hippo and have little chia children. Or he'll get eaten by a chia lion. Such is life on the great Chia Savannah.

This is me being happy to be alive-whew! Going up is always harder than going down, no matter what they say...

The View

What they don't tell you is that it's 1 3/4 miles straight up, but the view is worth it.

Arch Canyon Trail...
