This was actually a photo shoot that involved limited hiking but we did do part of the Peavine Trail on Saturday after a sunrise shoot that wasn't very fruitful. We hiked about 1.50 miles or so to an inlet area. My mileage was deleted during the Route Scout update. I forgot to upload it.

We practiced a couple different photo techniques on the way in. There were lots of ducks and some cormorants out on the water, mostly just getting up from their afternoon naps. We did get to see a tree full of branches loaded with birds and a Great Blue Heron. We spent a lot of time here before heading back after another dud for a sunset. Instead, the sunset we got was as were heading back but it wasn't that spectacular either AND I lost one of my favorite earrings which we couldn't locate as it was too dark.

The next morning we rose early for another cold sunrise that gave us that pink hue for about 5 minutes. Luckily there was lots of bird life around including geese, Golden Eye ducks, Scooper ducks and mallards. There was also a Great Blue Heron.

It would have been nice to spend more time hiking around the area but just being there for photography, even in the cold AM, was kind of nice. The last time I was here was with my brother and we had such a great hike [ photoset ] . I took a lot of pictures back then too. I had also been here with my mom and our two friends but not for hiking, just for gawking. It is such a unique and fun part of Arizona.

Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
