Turkey Vultures Along Tanque Verde Wash — Images by kenne
(CLICK ON ANY OF THE TILED PHOTOS TO SEE LARGER IMAGES IN A SLIDESHOW FORMAT.)

Today’s mid-day monsoon storm may have cause the turkey vultures, who roust along the wash, to come back early. Normally, we only see them in the morning and late in the afternoon. I counted ten and within thirty minutes only four remained. The most I have counted in the summer is 24. The fall and spring migration can bring over 100 staying over night. Since I was down by the wash photographing water running in the normally dry wash, I could pass up photographing these big birds in the changing early afternoon light.

Tanque Verde Wash — Images by kenne

The monsoon has been pretty active the last few days, as a result the desert washes and rivers now have water in them — a brief experience in the desert southwest. Our community of Tanuri Ridge is located on the north side of the Tanque Verde wash, normally very dry, but not the last couple of days. There are trails along the wash where people walk and ride horses. This morning I went walking along the wash, which had some water. After afternoon rains I went back down to the wash with my camera and took the above photos (August 19, 2014).

Desert Rains Rain On Our Concert Dreams

Desert Rains Rain On Our Concert Dreams

Jeff Beck (1 of 1)-4 blogRain Clouds Moving In Before Opening Act, Tyler Bryant — Image by kenne

When you live in the desert, you will take the rain any time you can get, even if it comes during the Jeff Beck/ZZ Top concert at Casino Del Sol AVA Amphitheater— well, maybe not any time. Having not seen these legionary entertainers, we were looking forward to their current tour stop in Tucson. The 5,000 capacity…

"Take A Good Look At My Face …"

“Take A Good Look At My Face . . .”

Kenne (1 of 1) blogKenne On Mt. Lemmon, Arizona — Image by Ricki

“Take a good look at my face
Yeah you’ll see my smile looks out of place
Look little bit closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears”

– Smokey Robinson, from “The Tracks Of My Tears”

“Lend me your hand and we’ll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I’ll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep,…
