Eh? What can I say...it is definitely winter in Arizona this year. I'm beginning to wish I kept more of my winter clothes. We woke up to about a half an inch of snow yesterday morning. I had to defrost the hummingbird feeder before our little buddy woke up. As a matter of fact, there wasn't a single bird around. I searched all the surrounding trees. Not a single bird in any of them...hmmmm, I wonder where they all go on such a cold night...

We saw lots of little tracks - deer, coyote, bobcat, skunk or fox or both, and something so tiny that it only left two little lines in the snow. Oh, no mountain lion tracks this time, but he is still around.
The green watercress in the creek added a lot of contrast to the white snow and blue sky.
Okay, so I'm posting too many photos of the creek. I can't help it. I just love the way the snow changed the creek's area.
The Railroad trail had a mystical feel to it....very enchanting and so quiet. We saw only one deer and no javalina.
