The past month has been an excellent one for backpacking and I’ve been lucky enough to have hiked from South Kaibab to Hermit in the Grand Canyon, the Alamo and Gila River Canyons passages of the Arizona Trail in full wildflowers, and a three day tour of the Rincons that included a trek to Rincon Peak, the little-used Rincon Creek Trail, and the new Quilter Trail/Arizona Trail in Saguaro National Park. Unfortunately all this backpacking has left me little time to update the blog. I promise I’ll have one of the above trips up soon!
Spring is definitely in full swing, and it’s time for the third annual Birds, Blues, and Bellydance Benefit for Wildlife Rehabilitation this Saturday, April 20th from 7-10 pm at Sky Bar- 536 N 4th Ave.
There will be a Harris Hawk, an Elf Owl, and a Great Horned Owl from 7:30-8:30, funky blues courtesy of The Railbirdz, bellydance performances from Troupe HipNautic, Brandye Asya and others, and open dance toward the end of the evening with Ensemble Al-Salam.
100% of the $7 suggested donation plus 15% of sales at Brooklyn Pizza go toward food, housing and supplies for the birds and small mammals at the rehab, so come on out and have a beer and a pizza while helping a worthy cause!
