We drove over from the Ananda Tucson center as it is only about 5-10 minutes. Well, actually took us 25 minutes because the normal route is torn up for some construction. I mean, who has heard of freeway construction in the middle of winter? Oh, yes, this is Tucson, where the temp reached 74 degrees today. Ok, no more rubbing it in for you "northerners".
|Bobcat new Sweetwater wetlands|
We walked around the perimeter of this pond which was a good 3/4 mile and there were 2 ponds like it. You will see below the sunset photos to get an idea of the wonderful foliage.
On the south side of the pond are 3 other rainwater fairly empty holding overflow ponds overflow. Too far to get any bird photos but I spotted this bobcat looking for dinner. Nice kitty! Think he walked away hungry.
As dusk approached, I left the kitty and raced around to the north side of the pond to catch sunset. think the 3 photos below turned out pretty nice. Couldn't decide which one to show you so posted them all. These were done via HDR. Please tell me which one you like in comments section.
