10,000 Steps But Still No Crested Saguaro

A huge cholló

We took another long, rocky walk today..Dave and I, on the quest for the elusive crested saguaro. That, plus walking around Walmart earned me 6,000 steps. After that, I don’t remember doing a lot, except for walking down to play Bingo, around the motor home a bit, oh, and a trip to the trash bins. At around 9pm my Pacer app said you reached 10,000 steps! I’m so proud and happy! Now I have a goal and I can strive for it every day. I am sore from walking on the rocks, but it’s ok. At my age, it doesn’t take much to become stiff and sore!

The rocky ground where parts of our trek took us.

I prefer to stay on the trails, but Dave thought we could find the cactus by cutting through the field. I told our friends Diane and Ken about it and they said they know exactly where it is and will take us there. It’s very close to where we were, we just turned into the field too soon!

Ostrich running wild behind the farm (they are also behind a fence).

I wanted to get closer to the ostrich we saw running around behind the Ostrich Ranch. Dave did not. 🤣😂

he did take a picture of me in the poppies. It’s not very flattering, but it was nice.

Me in the Mexican Poppies.

Even if we find the crested saguaro, I will work on achieving my goal of 10,000 steps a day. Just let me do it on a flat surface please!
