Bosque Hike (8/26/2017)
We were a group of 10 enthusiasts including an artist who made some wonderful watercolor sketches along the way.....caramba!!! The weather was perfect and everyone was friendly and big-hearted.
We had a great time with this interesting and interested group....saw a small or young heron, turtles, mallards, lots of beetles, a small hawk, lots of lizards great and small, lots of hummingbirds. The area (Montano Bridge) is green and lush right now.
