Another beautiful morning with the sun rising and the moon setting.
After breakfast this morning, Yuma and I headed out in the jeep to Queen Canyon. It is the canyon just north of Palm Canyon, but the road is rough and it winds around for five miles before it ends up at the canyon.
I wanted to mention that when Dolly and I were heading south on hwy 95 after the Bloggerfest on Saturday, something quickly crossed the road ahead of us. We thought it was a roadrunner, but as we got to the location and looked to the right, we saw a Kit Fox hiding behind a creosote bush. He thought he was hidden, but he wasn’t.
We didn’t know what kind of fox it was till we googled it. He was very small with large ears and had a black tip on his tail. That described a Kit Fox.
The canyon had beautiful rock formations and was about 3 miles in length. Yuma and I walked most of the 3 miles along the wash. We could have driven the jeep all the way up the wash, but we thought we needed the exercise. My feet hurt so bad now, I wish we had just driven the three miles.
Helicopter broke the silence flying through the canyon.
See right through the bottom of this huge rock formation.
Yuma leading the way.
After returning home, the whole gang jumped in the jeep and we drove 10 miles south on hwy 95 to Stone Cabin. Stone Cabin is just a row of buildings and tents along the road. Its about 40 miles north of Yuma or 40 miles south of Quartzsite. Only place between the two towns.
Randy, the man that runs the place handles everything. He sells shakes, ice cream, hamburgers, fries, old DVDs and essential oils. We had a cheeseburger, curly fries and Dolly had a date shake and I had a coke. Can’t say much about the cheeseburgers or curly fries, but the shake and coke were good.
Got back to camp and watched the news and the second segment of X-Files. Kind of nostalgic to be watching the same Mulder, Scully, Skinner and smoking man, just as we did back in the 90s. We watched that show every week back then and are ready to do it again. Hope it continues and is not a flash in the pan.
See you later.
