Bushwhack or Not to Bushwhack

1st 2:  this morning's moon
Another morning doing our regular hike, this time with added distance; we bushwhacked out of the left branch, headed east to the saddle, scaled 4210 hill and then retraced our steps.

Fortunate enough to photograph a Western Kingbird and a Desert Cardinal while we were out there, though I wish I had captured better images.

Saw only one other nature lover today, a runner we often see on Saturday mornings.  We were on top of 4210 hill while he was crossing the Tellbrook Arroyo in the distance.


This & next:  Desert Cardinal
