First thing I have to let you know that at 74 I still don't know everything. :(( I didn't know you don't put scales on a rug! I had bought a nice rug for the bathroom and the scales looked nice on it.
After my post last night I wondered about the rug, so placed the scale on the floor and weighed and I gained 5 1/2 pounds. I now weigh almost 136 pounds so I guess I'm not dying. Still not breaking any records but not as bad as I thought. Learned something new!
I woke up at 1 o'clock last night and downloaded my pictures and uploaded my blog and hopefully don't have to do that again today. Today I tackle Palm Canyon.
I had to wait till afternoon and try to catch the Sun hitting the crevice in the canyon, so I could get pictures of the palm trees in full sunlight. Not sure when that is but figure about 1:30 this afternoon. In the meantime Yuma and I did some relaxing.
|There is the parking lot ahead.|
|Looking back toward hwy 95 and beyond from the parking lot.|
|We're off. Yuma can't wait. Pulling me up the mountain trail.|
|There is a lot of climbing to get to the palm trees.|
|Growing right out of the rocks.|
|See! Yuma can read. :))|
|There are even Saguaro Cactus growing up there.|
|The Palm trees are in the upper center. See how far up they are?|
|Heading back down now. Yuma making sure I'm coming along.|
|Isn't it a pretty view from the parking lot!|
|Flowers along the roadside.|
I again took some Tylenol and soaked my feet even though they didn't feel bad. Just want to make sure.
Cooked steak and potatoes on the grill this evening just before the sun set while I was downloading pictures. Such a beautiful evening. It has been a very nice day. Sunny and low 70s with just a breeze. Going to sleep good tonight in this weather.
I'm glad I made the trip up here. Very relaxing and I can't get over how beautiful the Kofa Mountains are. Big and rugged. Tomorrow, back to civilization and all its problems. :(( Hopefully for only a day or so and then I'm out of Yuma for the year.
See you later.
