Yesterday, I finished my post with us in the middle of a complete smoke whiteout near the top of Montezuma Pass. When the smoke cleared, I could see the mountains ahead and the smoke and fire were now behind me.
I was glad Tom and Deb didn't run into the rear of the Jeep going through the thick smoke. Yuma does not like fire, so he is not a happy passenger right now!😫 Pulled over to take a little breather.
Turned a corner and there was the parking lot at the top of the Montezuma Pass. Looked back to see were we had come.
While at the top of the pass, we walked around and looked at the views and of course pictures of ourselves to prove we were here.😀
One last look of the sign at the east entrance to the memorial and we headed for home. One last picture of the east side of the Whetstone Mountains before I turn west on hwy 82 towards Sonoita.
Needless to say, we were all tired by the time we got home around 5:30. I slept fairly soundly until about 8 o'clock this morning and woke up to a nice warm and sunny day. Last night got down to 30 degrees but I had the light on in the water bay and all was good.
I'm thankful for the nice warm day with no consistent winds blowing because I plan to rest. As I sat outside, a man walked by on the road with a dog and of course Yuma had to meet the dog. Asked if it was okay and it was fine. His name was Rick and his dog was a friendly one year old. The two of them raced around while we talked.
At around 4 o'clock we got together at my place for Happy Hour. It was a beautiful late afternoon with just a slight breeze. First time we've been able to sit outside in the evening for nearly a week. I'm so glad the cold weather is behind us. Not used to being cold😨
Called it a night around 6 o'clock and I made a couple of hotdogs for dinner and as I finish this post, it is 10 o'clock! Definitely time for me to go to bed.
Thanks for stopping by.
