|Some little rocks I picked up for my collection. You can take up to 15 pounds of Rocks.|
This is the sign for the trail we took yesterday.
|The Palms is there in the first row of RVs. Quite a view!|
These are the rocks I picked up along the trail. I haven't broken them open yet, and I'm not sure how I'm going to do that, but we must have some tools that I can use. When I have them opened, I'll post the photos, probably the next post. Honestly, I wasn't sure what I was looking for, so I took a few that looked like "eggs" and the rest were just to increase my odds. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I have at least one good one.
There's a lot of activity around the campsite on these quiet, sunny, breezy days. I haven't even put out the bird seed yet, and we've still had a squirrel and lots of birds.

I looked up the following bird, and I think it's a Lesser Goldfinch. Let me know if I'm wrong. NOTE: Hazel let me know it's a Hammond's Flycatcher. Thanks, Hazel!

Remember when I was at Quartsite the first time and the Mourning Dove kept puffing up it's throat and no one knew why? I was afraid it was sick or had something caught in it's throat. I had forgotten all about that until I saw this White-Winged Dove yesterday, just sitting there across the road with his throat puffing, deflating, puffing, deflating, etc. Well, I'm thinking it must have something to do with the mating season.
|This is his normal throat.|
|Look how puffed up his throat is in this photo. I wonder if he's courting.|
We had a really pretty sunset last night.
Today is a little overcast - I wouldn't mind having some rain. It would be good for all the desert plants, and maybe bring out some flowers.
From Me and Katie, have a great Friday, everyone! :)
