BIRD WATCHERS AT SANTA RITA LODGE

BARBARA HOLDING HER $6.50 LODGE PASTRAMI SANDWICH


Yesterday we found a little campground (total of 13 spaces) in Madera Canyon and settled in in spite of no hookups and no phone service. It is absolutely beautiful: much higher elevation which means there are trees. Not the tall trees we see at home, but lots of them. Also some great hiking trails. Today we walked down one to the Santa Rita Lodge where they have lots of bird feeders hung out and benches to sit on while watching the birds. They sold sandwiches at the lodge which sounded much better than the granola bars we were carrying.

Not much new there, but we saw a pair of mountain blue birds and many Mexican Jays on the trail as well as a painted restart. After that, we came back to the RV and spent most of the afternoon reading. The old girl doesn't hike as fast as she used to, and she never was very speedy.
