Slept in till 8:30 this morning and I could hear the wind building outside. They are calling for a windy day but mostly sunny and warm. Had two hotdogs, a bunch of chips and dip with an ice cream bar last night. My stomach didn't like that combination, but I lived.
Told Dolly about it and she had worse problems this morning. A water pipe froze and broke in the bathroom and flooded it. She called our son-in-law, Evan and he came over and got the water shut off in the bathroom and she spent hours sopping up all the water everywhere. Sorry I couldn't be there to help. 😊
Had a full breakfast and tried to just lay around again today because of the wind, but Yuma was having none of it. Okay, so we took off in the Jeep and ended up on the west side of the Cargo Muchacho Mountains at the historical mining town of Tumco.I've been here before, so decided not to follow the historic walk and head out on my own along the mountainside.
Way across the valley are the water tanks used by the miners. Nothing but sand in them now. If you look at the picture of the whole valley above you can see them in the distance.
Hiking around here is not a walk in the park. By the time I finish today I will have walked over 10,000 steps. Yuma makes it look easy going through washes. 😃I just can't get used to the rugged beauty in these mountains!
I don't know about Yuma but I'm bushed.
