Here is your Wimpy Weather Wimp ready for another day. When I looked out the window around 8 this morning, I could see blue skies with few clouds. The wind died down last night and it is quiet this morning.
After reviewing my comments this morning, I could tell I wasn't getting much sympathy from my readers. Thanks for helping me get my head screwed on straight. I must agree I shouldn't be complaining. The desert needs the rain and it won't last for long. In fact, as I stepped outside to let Yuma take his walk, I could feel the warm sun on my face and life is good again 👍
It was quite cool in the White Lion so for the first time I had two heaters going at the same time. It started out at 37 degrees but will move up to 60 later today 😃 Nancy, Kissack Adventures had pictures of snow on Facebook in her backyard and she lives in Tucson. Too close for comfort.
After a leisurely breakfast, Yuma and I headed for Crystal Hill around 11:30. We drove the 10 miles north on hwy 95 towards Quartzite and made the turn at the sign.
If I had known it was over five miles east on a bad road, I may have given it a second thought. I'm hoping to bring home a crystal stone for Dolly!
|Heading up Crystal Road looking for Crystal Hill|
There certainly is a lot of rock here. There were rocks everywhere. And I don't even know what a crystal looks like 😕 There are lots of hills and there has been a lot of activity here over the years. The hills are high too.
|Yuma is braver than I am|
|Highest hill. Never made it up there.|
|Don't think a crystal would be worth going down that hole.|
|Glad Yuma is nimble footed.|
Glad you survived that miserable weather! 😃 Great to see it turned around so you and Yuma could get out and enjoy the desert!ReplyDelete
Thanks Steve. One bad day is just terrible 😞Delete
No crystals, but you had a good outing. Thankyou for looking for one. It looked pretty rocky in that area. Yuma is very brave. Just hope he's careful. You enjoyed a nice evening.ReplyDelete
No crystals. Could have bought you one. Lots of rocks, just no crystals.Delete
Yesterday I went to bake a loaf of bread (thawed frozen dough). I checked the instructions inside the door jam, and under "Convection", #5: yeast bread dough. I never saw that before, and I've used it maybe 15 or 20 times to bake bread. It worked perfect.ReplyDelete
Amazing how easy it is to overlook the obvious.Delete
It was nice after yesterday to wake up to blue skies with the wind gone. Agree the desert does need the water so we are not complaining either. Looks like you and Yuma had a nice walk around Crystal Hill. Tom and I have stopped there a couple of times with no luck either.ReplyDelete
Those darn crystals are hard to find.Delete
Glad to see you shook that slump off, braving that weather! hahaReplyDelete
Sounds like a great hike, too bad about no crystal but Dolly will understand. ;)
The picture of you in your chair and Yuma on the mat later looks so relaxing. It's funny that it's a case of Zero Coke instead of beer or it would look like a hard night!!
I hope Dolly understands Does look a little upheaveled around there. Darn wind yesterday.Delete
Hint: You can buy a crystal or two in Quartzsite! No one will know!! LOLReplyDelete
Too bad you missed the snow. It really was beautiful, although a tad bit cold. It was gone by the end of the day. Happy hiking!!
Saw the beautiful snow on your blog. Great pictures. I think I can handle missing the snow 😀Delete
Yuma is quite the adventurer! Crystal Hill like Crater of Diamonds..other people find, but not us :) Oh well...The last pic is so cute :)ReplyDelete
Yuma ran all over those paths. Kept me worried but I just hate to tie him down. Maybe next year!Delete
I was going to ay the same as Nancy ... Just buy the crystals in Q. There's no geodes in the geode beds either, but they too can be found in Q.ReplyDelete
A very nice day for your outing.
Yes Jeff, I should have just bought one but the hunt was fun.Delete
What a beautiful day. Beautiful scenery but my favorite pictures are the ones with Yuma. I'm glad you are enjoying those Alaska shows. It makes for a nice change from the murder shows.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elva. Yuma had a great time running those trails. Thanks for reminding me to watch. Starting to get into those people.Delete
That road leading in to Crystal Hill from the highway is one of the worst washboard roads we have been on. First traveled it in a pick-up truck in 07 or 08 and it about shook the truck to pieces as well as us.ReplyDelete
It's still a long bad road. Don't think I'll ever go crystal hunting there again. Just buy one 😀Delete
