Location: The RV Park in the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson, Arizona
This morning I got up at 7 o'clock and had a huge breakfast. Between us, we had 5 pieces of bacon and 3 eggs scrambled. Another beautiful day with a high of 74 expected today. Just perfect!
Unfortunately, today is laundry day. Got to get it done and today is the day. Great day to go back and see the Fairbank Cemetery. Nancy has great posts of our hike through the Fairbank area with lots of history included.
Kissack Adventures Be sure to check it out.
We left off yesterday at the turn towards the cemetery. It was a winding walk up and around a large hill. When we reached the top, it was immediately apparent the cemetery was in dire need of some loving care.
A cemetey in dire need of repair.
I will let you take a look around as we walked around the top of the hill and through the grave sites.
The ground is very rocky and hard so the bodies appear to be buried near the surface and covered in rocks.
Apparently a family enclosed within this fence. This was the only one fenced. A nice view across the San Pedro river basin.
Some were enclosed with used bricks.
Those are coins on the cross.
A little doll is the only thing left intact at this child's grave.
Can you see where the San Pedro River flows? We are high above the San Pedro River basin.
This one plot appeared to be taken care of.

How did stonehenge get here? Newly built it appears. Still brown dirt on the rock on the right.
Me, Yuma and Nancy taking a photo op rest. Great picture!
I just couldn't get the final part of the hike in without cutting back on pictures, so I'm going to leave the snake and caterpillars till tomorrow. If you read Nancy's blog you will get her version of how things went down. Check in tomorrow to find out if my version agrees with hers.
I've finished all my duties while here at the RV Park and can now drive around and enjoy this beautiful area. Last night I drove to a Safeway store in the town of Vail about seven miles from here. The very modern town is nestled in a small valley surrounded by hills and mountains. No wonder Nancy enjoys living there!
See you later.
