This is either how every RV park looks to me, or the RV show is coming to town.
I find myself safely back at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson Arizona where I signed up for two weeks of boondocking.
There's a RV show starting soon, and I can see they've moved a lot of RVs in here already. And I see a handful of horse trailers next to the indoor arena so I assume there will be some horse stuff going on pretty quick. I haven't been over to the Hunter Jumper area yet so I don't know what's going on with the Hunter Jumper folks. But I imagine this afternoon I'll go wandering around and see whats shaking.
I'm missing the Sandhill cranes already, since for some inexplicable reason I enjoy being around them, and I have no idea why. Up until I saw the Sandhill cranes the only other bird I cared anything about were hummingbirds and they were so many around our house in the woods that they would go through half a gallon of sugar water a day. Of all the things I miss about the mountains, hummingbirds are near the top of the list. I guess it's somewhat odd that I really enjoy being around one of the smallest birds like the hummingbird, and one of the biggest birds, the Sandhill Crane.
I don't know where I'll be going when I leave here in a couple of weeks, because a lot of my decisions depend on the weather, and whether or not there's a Super- Bloom this Spring. But it wouldn't surprise me if I ended up back at Whitewater Draw for a while.
Seeing these Hunter Jumpers and their horses brings back misty water-colored memories of my high school days, and my after-school employment as an equine sanitation engineer at a Hunter Jumper boarding stable. Ahhh the memories, ahhh the smell.
This exceedingly rare blue breasted Amazonian Kadiddlehopper is probably hanging around the Pima County Fairgrounds waiting for an unsuspecting Pangolin to walk by, Pangolins being their main source of food.
This is some serious horse trailering. I'm not sure but this could be a contractor that hauls your horses around for you. It's kind of expensive to have that done, but Hunter Jumper people tend to be better off financially than most.
