My brother (David Crook) and I took a few hours off this afternoon and drove out to the White Tank Regional Park. I’d never been all the way up the Waterfall Trail, and that was my goal. However, I chickened out at about the half-way point. I am just restarting my fitness program and plan to be in better shape each day.
Although there weren’t many blossoms, there was so much to enjoy: amazing rock formations, petroglyphs, an ever-changing sky that opened up just for us, birds, bird nests, lizards, cactus, and many, many people hiking up and down.

And here’s a petroglyph collection:
And here’s a cactus wren:
And finally, just a lovely scenic:
