Been a busy day! Woke up with the sun again this morning and it looks to be another beautiful day. Earlier in the morning the wind was blowing quite hard, but at sunrise it died to just a breeze.
Was on my second cup of coffee when I saw Shane and Cathy heading out.They stopped by before leaving and I got a group picture.
|Deb, Tom, Shane, Cathy, Yuma|
About an hour later, Tom and Deb (Celebrating the Dance) headed out in the Stinger "B".
Poor Yuma is losing his cookie buddy!
After everyone was gone, Yuma and I headed into Walmart in Yuma around 1:30. I had my eye on a Seagate 2TB portable hard drive. Both my camera and laptop have way too many photographs and it's time to move them off.
After returning, Yuma and I drove a short five miles to Historic Gold Rock Ranch RV Park.
This place is remote and barely qualifies as a tourist attraction, but I like the place.
When Yuma and I arrived and got out of the Jeep, a pick-up truck pulled up and they thought I worked there. They asked if there was any room at the RV Park. After we cleared up the confusion, they said they had been there about 20 minutes driving around and never saw a soul anywhere.
We talked awhile and they left and Yuma and I walked around. I went up to the office door and opened it, but no one was in the building, so I didn't go in. I didn't really care because I was there to just walk around the area.
They have a lot of old relics from the Tumco Mine, a historic mining town and mine just east of here in the Cargo Muchacho Mountains.We walked around and it was true, we never saw a soul.

We left and headed back south on Ogilby Road and to the left at the foothills of the mountains, I saw what looked to be a mine, so we pulled over to investigate.
However, after looking inside it only went in about 8 feet and stopped. Guess it was just a test hole. Yuma wanted to run around on the trails, so I let him go.
He always stops to make sure I'm coming along. He is so much faster than the old man.
Tonight, I finished this post before cooking chicken breast for dinner. Later, I will play with my new toy, the hard drive. Once I figure out how it works, I will start moving my many, many pictures over to it.
Beautiful evening with no wind. Time to get the grill going and dinner on the table. See you later.
The Gold Rock place has a lot of interesting things around it. I'm surprised there was no one around Yuma must have had fun racing around. Better be careful poking in holes!ReplyDelete
Thanks Dolly. Yuma had fun. He loves the sand and the desert. Gold Rock Ranch is a little rundown and remote.Delete
I hope the new hard drive works well! It seems like everything is abandoned out there! Wow!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jim. I hope so too. The Gold Rock Ranch is remote and kind of rundown.ReplyDelete
You'll do fine with your hard drive. When you plug it in, an icon will show up on your computer. Just click on that and follow directions. If you have any problems, give me a shout out.ReplyDelete
I feel bad for Yuma .... no crackers. I'll have to stock up in case we are able to catch up. Cool place Gold Rock Ranch.
Hard drive worked great. If you have crackers, Yuma will be your best friend.Delete
Good luck with the hard drive. Our pictures are so important to us, I'm nervous taking them off my computer so when I transfer them to my hard drive, I just 'copy'. I know, defeats the purpose and I should take the plunge. Is that what you do, Nancy? Remove them completely?ReplyDelete
Me too, Patsy. I just backed them up for now. I'll delete them once I feel safer.Delete
Everything looks exactly the same as the last time I was at Gold Rock a few years ago. It seems to be caught in a time warp. Every time I went there I always took pictures of those old trucksReplyDelete
Me too. I was hoping to catch the old shop keeper but no one was around.Delete
The time we went I don't think we saw anyone either. Jerry walked in the office and no one was in there ....hmmmm. Now for sure I want to go back. Love that Yuma was in the group picture.ReplyDelete
Yep, Yuma loves to get his picture taken. Guess they don't have many visitors at the ranch.Delete
Are you an Yuma now alone in your desert spot? Great pics with the clear sky adding some fun shadows.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jeff. All by myself. Will stay for a few more days and then it's off to Quartzsite for the big show.Delete
You'll probably cross paths with the gang again this winter.ReplyDelete
I did loose a few pictures in a transfer one. Since then I copy to the Hard Drive then put a fresh SD Card in the camera. Double Save.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
I have so many pictures I don't think I'd notice a few missing 😀 But I'm being careful.Delete
