Male phainopepla

The technology gremlins continue and having lost the whole post on yesterday's outing to sabino canyon

I know there are better ways to spend a sunny winter's day than to completely retype. The truncated version ( some of the photographs) hopefully speak for themselves. if my blog ever returns from the never never blogsy ether then I will repost.

Sabino canyon Catalina foothills

Majestic saguaro break the blue Arizona sky

Saguaro are at least 60 before they grow an arm

Fast flowing melt water- yep even in Arizona


Glorious winter hues

Plenary of restrooms and picnic tables

Female phainopepla looking rather red-eyed

Well worth a trip if in the Tucson area.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
