    Took a little hike at the Fountain Hills Botanical trail, which ends at a dam built in 1941. It is a pretty easy, meandering trail, only about 1/2 mile. 28-80mm Sigma and F3.

    Plants and Animals:
    It is late in the blooming season here, so not a lot of flowers to be seen, but there still are a few to be seen.

    I like the nice soft colours. Arizona is on my bucket list.

    Come on out.

    I like this lens for closeups, but, scenery shots, not so much.
