Tohono Chul Park, Tucson, AZ

I have just a month to go until I hit the trail, but spring is already in full bloom here in Southern Arizona.  To test out my new Canon S100 I took a short drive over to the Tohono Chul Park botanical garden and found the birds chirping and the flowers blooming.  It's amazing how just a little excursion into nature - albeit man-made nature - can lift your spirits and refresh your attitude.  Click on each image to see the full size picture.  Enjoy!

On September 30, 2012 I reached the Northern Terminus of the Pacific Crest Trail. Thanks to everybody who supported and followed my journey. It was a life-changing experience!
