January 11–13, 2014 Our Time in Casa Grande Part Five

Every time we walk in the desert we usually go east or south first then make a big loop – anywhere from 2.75 miles to over four miles.  And almost every walk we do there is something new to see but I always forget my camera.  So on Saturday, I brought the camera along and here are some of the sites in the desert that keep me wondering.

Balloons on the horizon:

A jar full of sand buried in the middle of nowhere:

Bones, bones, and more bones:

We have come across quite a few bones.  In one area they were scattered all over.  In another area was a horse.  Actually the horse was killed in November and we watched it go from full to bones – Interesting to see but also gruesome.

Some ones balloon:

We haven’t figured out why this was here.  Could have been a carport for a house/business or ??  There were a lot of nails sticking out on the top of the pole so something was attached.

Trash, trash, and more trash (lots of broken glass in there too):

Now this is interesting.  It is a small ceramic Siamese cat.  There was nothing around it.  Was it carried by the water to just this spot??

We came across an area that was full of stuffed animals – whose were they?

More trash – this was roofing material:

After all that rain, the desert has grass:

I have a lot more pictures but you get the idea.  It is like a treasure hunt every walk – what will we find today?

On Sunday, my cousin, Kris spent the day with us.  We had a wonderful time getting caught up, showing her around the park and a great “lupper” at the Native New Yorker Restaurant in town.  What a great time and always good to spend some time with her.

Here we are:

Today, Monday, was pack up/shutdown/laundry kind of day.  We will be leaving tomorrow for Quartzsite so stay tuned and enjoy today.
