Last week I enjoyed visitors from Texas. Becky and Gene had been my neighbors for over 30 years. They were travelling to Washington State to see their grandson graduate from high school. One day we went to Gila Cliff Dwellings. It was a hot day and I felt that I could not hike that trail in the heat. So I waited in the shade at the entrance and watched birds. I enjoyed the songs they sung and got a few photos.
The Gila River flows through the canyon where the Gila Cliff Dwellings are, and this moist habitat provides beauty in plant life and animal life.
