But one afternoon, Grandpa and Dad finished up their errands by about 1 p.m. So mom & I took off in the car for a local park called Red Mountain Park. It's fairly new and the amenities are still being built there and around it. But it's an oasis of sorts. They actually spend the money keeping up a pond and a major grassy area. Not eco-friendly, but at least the animals like it :)
This Rock Squirrel could easily be mistaken for a California Ground Squirrel except for the location.
Best of all though were the two Turkey Vultures that circled overhead several times.
There were a lot of other birds, but instead of boring you here on this blog, I invite you to look at my Flickr page. This link is mine tagged "Red Mountain Park"
