Week in Review

Curve-billed Thrasher in a Cholla back at the ranch
Becca and I hiked near Tortugas Mountain here in the northern Chihuahuan Desert on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.  That's the week in review.  On our way back this morning we hooked up with JC and Shaque on the inbound leg of the inner loop trail, and we talked college basketball.  Well, the humans did.  College basketball is my favorite team sport, and I'm a big fan of the University of Arizona Wildcats and the University of Texas-El Paso Miners.  My favorite basketball movies are Hoosiers and Glory Road.  I like the color blue.  :)

Why are you looking at me like that?

I can see how the curved-bill thrasher got its name.

You're trying to get me to say my favorite plant is my new baby saguaro, aren't you?
