Remember Pearl Harbor and all the sacrifices our men and women made during World War II.
Somehow I lost a few pictures from yesterday so I will get them in now. I couldn't resist stopping at the rest area in Texas Canyon. Here are a few pics of the huge boulders found there.
Oh yes, last night was Gold Rush and I spent 2 hours trying to get my Dish Tailgater to work. Finally put it on the RVs roof and I got the channels. I guess the satellites are low in the southern sky. Luckily, I started early and didn't miss the show.
This morning I awoke around 6:30 and Yuma and I took a walk around the parking lot before making breakfast. Don't have check-out till 11 AM, so I took my time and read some blogs. It is a beautiful morning and promises to be a nice warm day in the mid seventies. I'll take it.
Last time I'll stop here.
Filled my water jugs and packed up and topped off my gas tank, then we headed west on hwy 86 around 11 AM. About 130 miles through Indian Reservation. I always like this drive because there isn't much traffic heading to Ajo, Arizona.
The road is mostly flat and passes by some pretty mountains. The first one is Kitt Peak National Observatory. Stopped at the entrance road to the top of the mountain to take a few pictures. I've been up there once before so didn't drive up today.
You can see the observatory way at the top.
Wavy and flat except for some curves, but I do enjoy the solitude.
Finally hit the dead-end at hwy 85 and took a right in Why towards Ajo. Passed Coyote Howls West and thought of George and Suzie. Wish they were here. I would stop in for a visit.
Turned left onto Old Darbys Road about five miles north on hwy 85 and after a mile or so of horrible dusty wash boardy road I found a place to park for a cou[le of weeks, I hope.
It has clouded up but still very warm at around 75. Yuma is checking out our new home.
After laying down and resting for an hour or so, Yuma and I took a little walk to check out our surroundings.
First picture of a Saguaro Cactus and my favorite Black Mountain in the background.
Had dinner around six and finished this blog at eight. Now it's time to call it a day.
See you later.
