This afternoon at 2:30 Arizona Time I walked another two miles, along Fort Lowell Road past the Agua Caliente Wash (see pic) and then up Malpamene (sp?) Road for a ways.
Along the way I saw several likely photo shots, but for some reason they were again wiped from the memory card of the camera before I could download them to my computer. Guess I'd better look into this curious phenomenon. Perhaps the card contacts have become corroded again, like they did last year. A few rubs with a q-tip soaked with Electrical Contact Cleaner cured it back then.
Here is one nice little picture of a yellow and red cactus flower, though.
More another day . . .
