Had another good night. In fact Yuma had to wake me at 9 o'clock or I might have slept the day away. Stayed warm last night so didn't even need to kick on the heat to get rid of the chill as I've done the last few mornings.
Stepped outside to a beautiful quiet morning. Fixed my coffee and crackers and Yuma and I sat outside and just enjoyed the serenity of the area. If wasn't for the tinnitus in my ears there would have been dead silence.
It was past noon before I finished all my breakfast courses. I was enjoying just being lazy. I had to put up a canvas screen to keep the sun away because I'm facing west and it is darn hot in the sun. Works perfectly.
I had a project to do. While coming out, the bathroom door came loose and was starting to come apart. I took it down and put it aside till I found some time to repair it and today is the day. All I have to do is glue it back together and put it back up. I should be able to manage.
As you can see, Yuma was watching to make sure I did it right. Once I was done I laid it in the sun to dry and Yuma said it was 2 o'clock and time for a Jeep ride. He is tired of just hanging around.
We decided to take the scenic tour around the west side of Ajo Mountain and go through Ajo and back home. As I drove along I was surprised to see all the empty RV sites with no one in them. No crowds this year.
As we drove along we came up on the cow plops that Al Travel with the Bayfield Bunch and I had walked around a number of years ago.Yuma was raring for a hike, so decided this was the place to do it. See why they are called cow plops?
Look at that beautiful Organ Pipe Cactus next to that plop! It is huge and beautiful.
To the East is Ajo Mountain. On the other side at the base is the town of Ajo. See the cross at the top? By the time we got down and back to the Jeep I was ready to call it a day. Walked 6300 steps today. Still short of my goal but I'll make it. No hurry. We didn't go around Ajo Mountain and through town, we just went the short way back the way we came. It was already heading toward 4 o'clock.
