This is where we go on our walks - unless we take the road in the other direction.
Here is a photo at sunset the other evening when we had a cloudy day. The sun came out as it was setting, and lit up the mountains in the east. I remember this from last year. Sometimes the east is prettier than the west when the sun is setting.
I had forgotten about the pink sky we get during Quartzsite's sunsets. The other evening, I swear, even the air around me felt pink. All over the desert as far as the eye could see it was pink. Look at these colors looking eastward!
I added this one below to my desktop slide show photos. I think it looks like a watercolor painting.
Here's another beautiful evening sunset with a waxing crescent moon:
And one more - look at all the colors.
Little Katie has again discovered the lizards. We call them "critters." Now that she knows the critters run to the bushes and fire pit rocks, she always wants to stop at every one on our walks. Do you know how many bushes and fire pits there are in Quartzsite? I read somewhere that "Leave It!" is a good general command when you want your dog to leave something alone. We're working on that and she's doing pretty well.
|I know, I know, rattlesnakes. That's why I don't let her do this anymore.|
|This was a huge fire pit that a lizard ran into.|
I have a quick question: Katie has started hesitating when trying to jump from the couch seat to the top of the seat back when she wants to lie up there in the sun and often just gives up without trying. Also occasionally just jumping on the couch or dinette seat from the floor. She's only 6 years old, which seems too young for arthritis, and she just had her yearly exam and the vet said she was doing fine. This has been going on for three or four weeks now. Any ideas or suggestions?
And one more: What do you guys do with your garbage when you're staying in the 14-day BLM campgrounds here in Quartzsite???? Katie and I always take a daily walk to the campground dumpster to get rid of our garbage, but there aren't any here. I've been accumulating my little Wal-Mart garbage bags and putting them in a large black trash bag, but it started smelling, so now it's sitting on top of the hood on my entry rug. I'm going to town soon for water and some supplies and can't exactly drive up to someones dumpster and throw in my large black plastic bag. What's your trash removal routine? Help!
