This morning I put the coffee on the stove with my new perculator top and it worked perfectly. No drips, no spills, no mess! No more trying to hold the tide back with duct tape.
Here is the before and after look:
After my coffee and breakfast, Yuma and I headed about 10 miles north toward Quartzsite to Crystal Hill Road.
Dolly didn’t come along, because we knew it was going to be at least five miles of really rough road and her back is bothering her. She and Fergie stayed home to hold down the fort.
Arrived at the kiosk and picked up a brochure of the area.
There is Crystal Hill in the background. Yuma is raring to go.
Yuma is looking for crystals or just trying not to step on cholla cactus. Not sure which.
Walked to the top but no crystals. I don’t think I would know one if I saw one. There was a lot of evidence that people have been digging around here.
Looking across the valley from the top of the hill.
After walking around looking for crystals to no avail, we returned to the jeep and traveled further into the Kofa mountains. We ended our bumpy and dusty jeep trek at Scott’s Well.
After about 15 miles of these roads, Yuma and I were ready to go home. .We were tired when we got back to camp. Another 10,000 plus step day. Almost 5 miles again.
See you later.
I guess Kelly & I shouldn't have scooped up all the crystals when we were there a few years ago. Nice day for a hike though.ReplyDelete
Rough road. We have had nice weather so far. Not too windy. Yuma is learning to stay away from the Cholla. He steps more lightly so they don't stick so hard.Delete
