Day Hike

Saturday, January 7, 2017

The Bayfield Bunch had a small problem (I hope) with their RV today and are going to resolve the issue.  We have rescheduled for tomorrow morning, if all goes well.

After breakfast, Yuma and I took the Jeep and drove up Darby Well Road to Ole Two Fingers.  That’s the name I gave it.  Not sure what the real name is.  I can see it from camp off to the West.

Driving along just North of Black Mountain.

As we get further Southwest, we can see the Little Ajo Mountains stringing South towards Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

The scenery as we go along is remote and gorgeous.

Which way do we go now? Yuma asks.

Maybe I can see better from here.

Now I know which way to go.

Looks beautiful out across the desert.

Time for me and Yuma to take a siesta before starting back down.

Got as far as we can go without being cliff climbers.  I can look to the top, but can’t get there from here.

  2. I think we might have dodged a bullet this morning and resolved our Black Tank problem hopefully. I've heard that big rock formation called Locomotive Rock although I've never really been able to see any resemblance to a Locomotive there. See you in the morning.

    1. Thank you George. Hope you are having a safe trip. My Dad died two years ago at this time when I was in Yuma. I, too had to make a quick trip back to Nashville for his funeral. Not a fun time.

    1. It was a nice relaxing day. Didn't over do the walk and had a nice time. I Do think I am getting better with the Picasso software.

  5. Love the name Ol Two Fingers name better than the real one. I might remember them better if they made sense like that. Nice pictures, Doug.
