I don't recall ever seeing a Saguaro with so many "arms."

You know, I thought about walking down dune a bit further to line up better, but this was far enough. Pretty steep slope.

Oh for Pete's sake! I have to wonder if you planned this ride just for the elevation profile, expecting a childish outburst from me. Unbelievable. Your attempt to pull me into the muck by this obvious mammarian stunt won't work. Not on me!
I won't stoop to this level. Maintaining my integrity.
Yep, staying the course.
Not gonna do it.
Aaahh, the hell with it.
BOOBS!!!

Hi Ann, I've had the premium version in past years and it's worth it for advanced route planning, stitching together segments and things like that. Aside from that, the basic is probably adequate. I've been playing with an app called Komoot, which has apparently has pretty sophisticated routing capabilities worldwide. I am using the free version now but they have a subscription option like RWGPS, and/or you can buy access to maps worldwide (updates free) for $30. It's worth checking out and it gets great reviews.

That hypothermia is scary. Glad you got warm in time.

Almost tall enough to reach over and tap Small Sitting Man on the shoulder!

Have you tried bighorn sheep bacon with delicious canned chicken in a rice-and-lentil stew? If you do, let me know how it is.

You're close enough to scratch his belly! (That's the best way to determine whether a snake is friendly or not.)

That looks like the spine of a sleeping creature!

This is a great photo of you, Rachael! You look like a natural on that rock.

Watch out, Alex Honnold!

Flowers in North America are fairly easy with the search and ID info online nowadays.
My degree from Arizona State U. in Tempe was Zoology, (Herpetology was my favorite) so sometimes I actually remember a few key things about critters. Too bad there isn't the same search capabilities for insects though.

Well, now that’s impressive. I expected a suggestion about the flower, but not the fly.

That's cool that you got to talk with the innkeeper about the history. Hard to imagine what it must have felt like as a crowded crash pad for miners! They really made it look beautiful.
