One of My Favorite Walks

Sweetwater (Water Reclamation Ponds) in Tucson is one of my favorite places to visit and do some nature meditating.  Sometimes it smells a little foul; sometimes it doesn’t.  You just take your chances!  It is a popular site for birder’s as the 7 ponds (which might be full or not) draw a variety of birds.  On my recent visit to Tucson I just had to go see what birds were visiting and walk the trails.  It is so easy to regain a sense of peace in this place. 
Of course I had my trusty camera and am sharing what I saw with you
