Masks Now Required
(Back blip #1)
This is the very large Santa Rita Lodge welcome bear. Those of you who have visited (or who I have dragged to Madera Canyon ) might recognize him, despite being incognito. Off to the left are the casitas where I stay. As you enter the National Forest, you're in Pima County. By the time you arrive as far as the lodge, you're in Santa Cruz County. Both now have mandatory in public mask wearing.
Sadly, Arizona continues to be in the news for all of the wrong reasons: Coronavirus, wildfires...and coming to a theatre near you will be the Trump spectacle at the border and a rally(?) in the Phoenix area. *sigh*
Interesting but useless fact:
The sperm whale is the loudest animal on Earth.
