Tuesday, January 9, 2018 – Location: Ajo, Arizona
Made sure I took two Tylenol before going to bed and I woke up with just a little soreness in my right ankle. But no problem. Didn’t get out of bed till 8 A.M. and that probably helped. My Verizon reception is so bad out here, I have to go in the living room to use my phone internet with the booster, otherwise nada.
It called for cloudy with chance of sprinkles today, but all I have seen is sunny and windy. There are clouds off to the west, but not approaching so far.
After breakfast, Yuma and I decided to drive over to a huge group of boulders just south of Ajo Peak. The road goes right up to it, so no long walks today. With this wind, we will be staying close to home.
Wasn’t a long drive and we came across a nice looking wind mill along the way.
Got fairly close and then we walked the last half mile. Didn’t need water this time. I could see the Jeep back there.
I know it looks like I’m wearing one of those flimsy Walmart Hawaiian shirts, but that’s a rugged southwestern camouflage shirt. If you believe that, I’ve got a dozen, I’ll sell at $80 a piece.
Yuma and I were climbing around in the boulders when a military jet let off a loud thunderous sonic boom. First one I’ve heard. Didn’t hear the jet, just the sudden boom bouncing off Black Mountain to our southeast. Needless, to say, that was it for Yuma. He hates loud noises. He was off to the Jeep and that was it.
We headed back towards Black Mountain and home.
We spent the rest of the afternoon resting and rocking with the wind in the MH. Nice to relax and get a little sun before the clouds roll in. The clouds are getting darker and they still call for sprinkles tonight.
See you later.
