Sunny Days and Snow

I'm looking out my window at grey skies and a foot of snow (and it's still coming down!), so I wanted to bring a little sunshine into my life. Here are some photos from my recent visit to Arizona.

This is me, giving some love to Junior, a Quarter Horse. I had the chance to ride Junior, which made me very happy! I grew up on a horse farm and love riding. I don't get to ride nearly enough these days.

A curious (bordering on nosy!) goat.

Being stalked by burro Dorothy.
Looking toward Phoenix, from the White Tanks Mountain Park. The name comes from white granite basins that hold water, formed from years of flash floods.
Hiking in the White Tanks.
Petroglyphs in the White Tanks. Petroglyphs are etchings in the rock. These were made by ancient Native Americans.
Me, with Buddy and Charlie. Corgis, the royal breed.

It looks like you had a lot of fun in AZ! Sorry you had to come back to all of this snow...but at least it's pretty.

Buddy and Charlie are adorable!

So glad you got to visit with Betsy and get some riding in also. Wish I could have been there with you two. I know you'll have fun playing in the snow now that you are home:)
Love,
Mom

What beautiful scenic shots!

(And I'm still officially jealous of anyone who has SNOW, yes, even though I don't like the cold!)

Oh I love corgi's. The petroglyphs look similar to what is found here in Oregon.
