Betsy and I took a trip this Thursday - Sunday to Hennagan Meadow, a small lodge
on the eastern boarder of Arizona 22 miles SE of Alpine. This lodge is on a nice
meadow at 9100 ft / 2800m elevation. It was nice and cool, we had a nice
thunderstorm on Saturday. I took our F350 4WD pickup truck - we explored several
forest roads, something I dare not do with the Porsches. All in all it was a
nice cool break.

I know this place, it is in what is called Unit 27 hunting sector and is a great
place to hunt black bear, elk and they also have Javelina which are small pigs.
To my knowledge the Hannagan Meadow lodge which I have actually stopped their
for fuel only provides horseback riding, nature site seeing and good
accommodations. But the surrounding area is Great hunting. The down side is it
is highly controlled by guide services which make getting an area to hunt almost
impossible without going thru a Guide that leases the properties. There are many
in the area I know of. Rich picked a beautiful area of East Arizona to site see.
You need to get him interested in hunting. Their is very good elk hunting in
Arizona, very large bulls are killed every year.

I'm glad that you enjoy the photos and am pleased to share them. It was
interesting that the hummingbirds were competing with the bees for the feeder,
the photo of the bird and bee shows the scale - how small the boards really are.
I'm quote pleased with my little Canon G9 camera, the detail of the photos is
I've learned that these small birds can travel as much as 500 miles / 800 km
during the year and have a speed of up to 35 mph / 56 kph. Their range is from
Alaska down into South America! They are the only birds capable of flying
backwards. They have a very high metabolism, they must drink their weight in
nectar each day - if they don't eat for one day they can die of hunger. They
live normally from 1 to 4 years, but some live as long as 12 years.
