The storms hindered much of our stay, often chasing us off the trails due to intense lightning storms.

Often times, this bird hangs out high up in the trees far far away from photographers.
During the bad weather, we stopped at some great eats in Springerville. Booga Red's and Los Dos Molinos provided some tasty Mexican dishes spiced up with green chiles.
At the dawn's early light, we searched for American Dippers and Gray Jays.
We combed the grasslands for Mountain Bluebirds and Pine Siskins.
