Yesterday, from our campsite as shown here at the base of the Catalina Mountains, we turned the Holiday Rambler around and pointed it north. Too many e-mails from family and friends talking about spring in Oregon has given us the itch to give up our sojourn in the South. We leave Tucson and Catalina State Park with good memories. Of course we enjoyed the good birding here, but more memorable will be the time spent with friends. Our friend Rod Pace took time out from his busy schedule as CEO of Rosemont Copper to BBQ for us at their lovely home. (His wife Nina is in Elkton this week for the Greatest of the Grape.) Our dog Buster, and their dog Bear (a huge dog) are old friends and still get along fabulously. And our friends Ron & Bev came out to visit us as mentioned in the previous blog. Stay tuned; I’ll keep you posted as we ramble home.
