There are starting to be a lot of flowers on the cactus. We should go out specifically to get some pictures before we leave the sunny south for the summer. You'll notice I use a lot of pictures of Lise as her pictures somehow always turn out better; not sure why that is :-)
We may be going on a hike next week. We'll see. It is supposed to be in the high hills and therefore not likely to involve interaction with snakes. Time to get our hiking boots back out, I guess.
The Mesa Market that has been open on weekends all winter is closing for the season. Today was the last day. There were a large number of people walking around the tents looking for bargains, us included. I just like going to people watch. We don't usually spend much money there.
There have been a couple of happy hours this week which we have attended. We basically decided not to go to too many this year as we end up eating too much and the ingredients are not always the healthiest. That doesn't mean it doesn't taste good, it's just that the food is inconsistent with our current dietary habits. But this week we have decided to attend them as it may be the last opportunity to see some of the friends we've made while we've been here. I think many others felt the same way as a lot of people showed up.
We've been tweaking our trip map a little bit and may decide to take a route that stays off the Interstate highways a bit more. We compare notes with friends in the park that travel in the same general direction as us and get ideas that way. Looks like we might be going through Dodge City, Kansas now. That should be fun. Hopefully we can stop long enough to look around a bit.
Got to sit down now and watch the rest of the Juno Awards (Canadian Music Awards). Will post again soon.
