This brings back memories of our visit to this area. You were able to camp on BLM land. We watch Gila woodpeckers catch the bees attracted to the hummingbird feeders. A mockingbird was successful chasing all the birds from the feeder by using a hawk call. Even fool me as I grabbed the binoculars and raced outside to find the hawk. Imagine my surprise when all I saw was a mockingbird please with himself. The stick you noticed in the pictures is actually a in its native environment NIGHT BLOOMING CERUS. It has heavenly scented white flowers at night.

    That sure reminds me of home, Betty. I lived in NE Arizona for twenty years.

    • We spent a lot of time Arizona so have a lot of pictures.

      • Dagny says:

        Whenever I’d be passing through the Four Corners area, I’d always be looking for landmarks from Hillerman’s books.

      • When I read books about Arizona I do the same. Jance’s JoAnne Brady and Hilerman’s. Have read Anne Hillerman’s books. I like,them better than Father’s.

      • Dagny says:

        I haven’t read any of Anne’s books yet. You told me about them before and I checked my library. They have the first one. I still have one of Tony’s to read. I was “saving” it, lol. But now I’ll go ahead and read it before I start the daughters.

      • Tony writes from man’s of view while Anne’s writing is frm a woman’s view. Bernie’s is more important in her books. My library had the first one and I lucky and had ARC on the one released this year. There should e reviews on my site Goodreads and Amazon. Have you read Margaret Coel’s Wind River books? I like them better than Tony Hillerman’s. Again written more from a woman’s view point.

      • Dagny says:

        Interesting, Betty! Something else to look forward to. I didn’t care much for Bernie when she first showed up, but came to really like the character later. I haven’t read any of Coel’s books yet, but have both The Eagle Catcher and Blood Memory. I’d better move them up in the TBR pile! I really like books where women are the main characters and narrators.

      • The MCs are Father John, a Catholic priest sent to Reservation in disgrace for alcohol and Vicky Holden, Arapahoe lawyer romance that both know can’t be. Each book has Indian information on the Plains Indians. She is a must read author and has a new book that is at the top of my TBR list.

      • Dagny says:

        Thanks for the rundown, Betty. I’ll look at Goodreads.
