Early Spring Birding

Got up early rhis morning hoping to drive up Mt Lemmon and get some sunrise shots. Sheriff had the highway closed do to clouds? Didn't know clouds was a weather condition. Threw a wrench in my plans so I had to scramble for a close place to try and get the sunrise. Ended up sucking since I couldn't find a place close enough to get up high. Ended up getting some birding in though and that payed off pretty well. After hitting Agua Caliente and adding 3 new species to my year list I headed home and still had the bird bug spent a few hours in the yard hunting hummingbirds. Couldn't have asked for a nice day.

First two are from the failed sunrise photo shoot. 

Some nice lighting at the park though
 New life bird for me. Norther Beardless-Tyrannulet

Some hummingbird action in my yard. 

And some jet action over the house.

2014 24HOP

Well was gonna finally gonna take a stab at the 24hop solo this year in preparation for the AZT300, unfortunately that didn't happen. Back decided it needed a month plus some off  so had to pull the plug on the 24hop this year. No biggie gave me more time and less sleep to spend the weekend taking pictures if the event and drinking enough whiskey to hide the pain of seeing two different wieners on day one.

Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend.

A couple sunset shots from the scouting trip the Thursday before the race.

First round was from the Beer Crit.Probably the funnest time of the entire weekend.

Next a few from the morning of the official race. Was a little rough getting up but had a breakfast burrito calling my name and I knew the wife was going to be demanding one as well and done want her getting Hangry.

Stayed up late to hike out and get some night shots as well. Didn't leave much time for sleep so I could trudge back out for the sunrise.


 And a few from the last day.

Enduro 2014

Time to fire this blog back up since I am just not happy with the way the pics look on facebook.

My buddy J-Bake has been wanting to put on a little local Enduro now for awhile and showcase some of the awesome riding Tucson has to offer. I told him I was I would be happy to help out and ride in it. Problem is when the time finally came my back was out so I told him I would just have to hike it and take pics. 15 brave souls showed up and we headed out into the blazing winter sun.
