Since our hike at San Tan, we have been walking here in the resort and working on our craft projects. John finished this stunning keepsake box. It is made of padauk wood with turquoise inlay. I think it is the most dramatic and beautiful box yet!

It is a new year and I have a new knee, so we decided to go for a hike last week. We headed to San Tan Regional Park, south of our resort, where we knew we would find some trails that are relatively level. There were hills up and down, but nothing that made me think of going up and down stairs. I knew that would be difficult at this point.
We saw plenty of cholla cactus. This is called hanging fruit or jumping cholla. Those pods hang down and easily catch on clothing or animal hair. That helps the seed pods spread beyond just the base of the original plant.
