After a few hours we headed back to Tucson instead of Madera Canyon for the night because our luggage didn't make it. Long story short. We wasted good birding time driving back and forth to the airport to find luggage for 2 days. Our first trip up Old Baldy trail in Madera Canyon was very quiet and bird free. We did manage to find a Townsend's Warbler and an Olive Warbler but that was about it. That night we camped in the Bog Springs campground in our dirty underwear. We made Jiffy Pop on the fire and had fun looking at the stars. We drove down the canyon road to see if we could find any snakes or owls and got a Barn Owl! At 3am I went out to potty and was greeted by a Hognose Skunk! I think I would have been less frightened by a bear!
Our last night we stayed in the Santa Rita Lodge and it was so peaceful and relaxing. The next morning was our last. While Liam was in the shower and I was putting socks on I heard some crashing through the branches out our back window. I looked out and saw a Coatimundi! I told Liam and he hurried out of the casita with me dripping wet to get a better look. That morning we also saw a big gopher snake and a Greater Roadrunner! It was a fun morning and a great way to end the trip!
