Tbt: Old Peru

It’s been a busy week. We went from snow to the 70s F, and there are a million deferred chores to do around the ranch. It’s a day of drywall touch-up and painting in the garage (finally.)

We continue our look back at the ancient ceramics of Peru:

Machu Picchu Monday

Last Monday in February. We’re going to finally see a bit of a warm-up here in NW Arizona. We’re so ready!

Meanwhile, back in the tropics:

It’s a rare snow day in Northwest Arizona. We actually have snow on the ground here at 3,000 ft elevation. I’ll stick a few peeks below the fold.

Machu Picchu Monday

It’s a cold Monday in Northwest Arizona today. There was snow on the ground this morning, and there are still patches of snow around the ranch. (See pics below the fold.)

So naturally, we’re dreaming of the tropics and Machu Picchu. Here’s a bird not the least intimidated by the tourists. As one drives through the Sacred Valley there are many waterfalls, and much wildlife especially birds. I’m not sure what this is…

Happy Valentines day! It’s cold and rainy here, but we’re welcoming the rain and filling everything with wonderful rain water. The plants really do seem to do better with it.

Here’s a look back:

Machu Picchu Monday

Ah, Monday after a Super Bowl. We don’t have network television at home, but someone invited us to watch the game. It’s always nice to hang out with friends. Today, I’m feeling lethargic, and it’s one of those cold and dreary days. We may even get rain here in NW Arizona…

Machu Picchu Monday

Last Monday in January, hope your year is going well.

This shot was taken in Saqsaywaman. Note the ancient, but precision stonework. Truly amazing.
