When a Harris Hawk lands atop a Saguaro Cactus it does so very carefully; first one foot, then the other. With both feet balanced on the Saguaro, the hawk faces into the wind, wings adding lift, so the full weight of the bird doesn't sit on the cactus spines below.
A fifteen foot asparagus plant? Not really; finally we get to see a Century Plant ready to blossom and then die after getting ready for more than twenty years. I just wish it wasn't 60 miles from our present camp so we could watch it daily as it grows this giant stalk that will eventually blossom.
A tree house with an awesome view, built out of Mesquite wood, is just one of the many interesting things here.
We've seen a couple of these Javeilina's running free, but it was fun to see one up close. We didn't know their feet were so tiny.
