The Good Life

Sitting in the "hot tub" at night looking at stars over head. Dining out with friends and road acquaintances. Playing Scrabble with real people instead of the computer.  Add to that many other activities for participation, there seems little time to get the laundry done.

That is the good life where I've hung my hat for a month at the Voyageur RV resort.

Then there is hiking. My passion. Found a fellow hiker/walker in next door neighbor Duane. We've hiked several days in Saguaro East. Other times, we have joined a hiking group from the park.

The most recent hike was to the Empire Ranch. A BLM managed grass land south east of Tucson. Much of the hike was along part of the Cienega River (the name according to my GPS). Some cottonwood trees have been growing a long time. They were huge -- six to ten feet in diameter.

There was considerable temptation to climb the branches of these trees. But with that inner ear balance issue, I decided that this was a good time to be a sensible person in spite of what I really wanted to do. A younger person -- including a younger Wandrin Lloyd -- would have shimmied up the tree without a second thought.
