Last night I was so tired after working on the TV and the long hike to the casino and walking around inside, I didn’t have dinner. I just went to bed. This morning, I was starving, so decided it was time to make some eggs and ham. That and a half grapefruit, milk and orange juice and I felt full. The eggs were a little dry and tough, but filling. Nothing like Dolly makes. Will have to work on it.At 9:30 I was on the road toward Ajo, Arizona. Only a 120 mile trip today, so will arrive early in time to find the perfect boondocking spot for the next two weeks.
Just a little ways down Highway 86 I started seeing mountains. I went through mountains, desert valleys and through Indian reservations.
These are the Comobari Mountains just southwest of Tucson, Arizona.Then I caught a photo of Kitt Peak National Observatory.
The scenery was beautiful going through the Tohono O’Odham Nation. There were many saguaro cactus, mesquite trees and cholla cactus and barrel cactus everywhere.
This may be Mt. Ajo off to the south as I close in on Why, Arizona. Elevation of this mountain is 4808 feet. However, I am not very familiar with the mountain ranges around here, so could be wrong.
Turned right at Why and had 6 miles to Darby Well Road just south of Ajo, Arizona on highway 85. I could see Black Mountain to my left. I will be staying just on the other side.Turned left on Darby Well Road and I could see that it had rained here yesterday, but the road was mostly dry. Black Mountain is dead ahead.
Found a beautiful secluded place with my door facing Black Mountain. This will hopefully be my home for the next couple of weeks. The weather is just gorgeous with temps at 71 degrees and a slight breeze.
See you later.
