This morning I woke up around 7:45 and turned on the heat to take the chill out of the place. Laid back and read the news on my phone and blogs. Got up at 8:30 to begin my day. Another beautiful day on the horizon again. Gets monotonous doesn't it? I love seeing the sun shining in the mornings. Heats everything up quickly including my batteries.
Made my crackers and coffee and saw Tom and Deb outside already so took my breakfast over and Yuma and I joined them. Yuma just loves Tom because he always gives him a graham cracker. 😍 We chatted till almost noon and then went home to finish breakfast.
I don't like packing and moving all on the same day, so I packed everything today and moved the White Lion down the road and turned it around so I will be ready to go in the morning sometime around noon.
As I was lying on my lounger resting I heard a bird whizz by me and then it was gone. Later I went into the White Lion and when I stepped into the bedroom I was met by a sparrow standing on my pillow against the mirror behind the bed. Opened the window and it was gone in a flash.
Around 2:45 Yuma wanted to go hiking, so I decided to head up to the foothills of Black Mountain and take pictures of the area we live in.
|Heading to the cluster of rocks above|
|Terrain is rough to walk on|
|Rocks are to the right out of sight|
Below, I'm looking to the Northwest and you can see the Little Ajo Mountains, Ajo Peak and Little Ajo Peak. The Pit tailings are to the right. You can see Bates Well Road snaking across in the distance.
|There's my new location close to the tower|
|The top of the Pit in Ajo|
|Black Mountain above me to the Southwest|
I thought I heard some movement in the valley below and zoomed in on it and there were burros chowing away down there. Same ones I saw heading in that direction a few days ago. I counted five.
|Isn't it beautiful?|
|Rough walking with all the loose rocks|
|One more large wash between me and home|
Got home around 4:30 and pulled out the grill I had packed earlier and made two hotdogs for dinner. Not much but good enough. Sure tasted good.
Too windy for a fire tonight, so will be an early night which is okay with me. My feet hurt from all the twisting and I did manage to fall twice but only received minor scrapes. Getting too old I guess 😞
See you later.
