Algodones Adventure

DesertDale and Kitfoxgal went to Algdones to get Meds. and visit a friend , that live there.
Migel and his wife have a shop there on the main street.  The photo was taken last year.  Migel did not have his shop  set up yet.  So Kitfoxgal bought a pair of errings from his nephew , who also has a shop there on the main street.
 
Algodones has more pharmacies, doctors, dentists and opticians in a 4 blocks area  in the world.     Both Americans and Canadians  come over there for that meds.  You can ask around and get the same answer the doctors and dentists.
 
Algodones is about 7 miles from Yuma and about 20 miles from our site at Sidewinder.  It cost $6 to park yoour car , unless you drive over inot Mexico.  We never do , we just pay the $6 and walk over.

Tule Springs Birding Adventure In Vegas

On the road to Tule Springs for our treat for Saturday , here at our site in Goverment Wash. 
This is a view of Las Vegas from the road from Lake Mead.
This is a view of Tule Springs. We saw very few birds this time around.  Last year we had the pleasure of seeing this this beauty of a bird, the Common Peafowl, or Peacock.  They are very unmistakable.
This year all we saw was DesertDale's friend the Buzzard.  It is a large bird of prey.
We enjoyed the outing .

Henderson, NV. Birding Adventure Plus Wetlands Park


We have moved to one hot site from another.
DesertDale likes to take photos of birds, of any kind and I enjoy following him.
These are 2 Mallard Ducks seen at Bird Viewing Preserve in Henderson.

Henderson's Bird Viewing Preserve is locaited at their Water Reclamation Facility, near Galleria Dr. and the Boulder Highway.
There are some 100 acres of basins, lagoons and ponds .  The best time to go is in  the cooler months.  There are a few birds there even in the summer.

This was taken last year, when the fall migration was on at the Henderson site.
The fall migration is the is the best for you and the birds, such as Loons, Grebes, Cormorants,  Herons, Egrets, the Sandpipers, Ibisies, Gulls, Roadrunners and many more. This Tuttle and the Painte Tuttle are just 2 of the many animals wee seen.

Same tuttle in and out of water.

The Painted Tuttle is a smaller type.
 
As we come to the end of our walk this rabbit runs right if front of us.

Martis Creek Lake Birding Adventure

DsertDale took Kitfoxgal out on a birding advenseture because she was getting too damn crabby.  That did the trick folks.  Now I gave DesertDale a big hug.
Martis Creek Lake  was built when the Martis Creek dam was buiilt in 1972.  The Dam is 113 feet high and 2670 feet long.  It can hold up to 20,400 feet of water. and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
DesertDale took this photo of this fine old tree.  I sure it has seen many changes over the years.
This is a Brown Creeper was taken here at Alpine Meadows Camp Grounds.

Heading for Rio Linda in the morning.  DesertDale  said he would treat me to a lunch at Costco, in Sacramento, tomorrow, being that my attiude has changed.
DesertDale just told  me he got me a early Christmas gift, a new toilet for the  motorhome. Not every girl gets a toilet for a Christmas.

What ever you do enjoy life, as it is so short.  I differently have the right person to do that.  Kitfoxgal
