Woke up at 9 o'clock to a mild but mostly cloudy morning. Not so bad as to stop my solar panels from working, but sun and clouds. Luckily, it is mild with a high of 66 today.However, they are calling for high winds tonight so better make sure antennas are down before going anywhere today.
While lying outside enjoying the sun when it poked through, Yuma ran around the backside of the White Lion barking. When I ran around to see what it was Yuma was coming back.The bull just stared at us and didn't move. Yuma and I went back to our spots and he was gone when I looked again. I don't think Yuma frightened him one bit 😀
Also, caught the rain falling over Nancy's house 25 miles north of here. Or is that the northern lights?
After a shortened breakfast this morning, we headed out around 11:30 for a scenic drive south about 20 miles to a small and pretty little town named Patagonia. It is very near the Mexican border.
Stopped in Sonita to fill the Jeep. With prices at $4.19 a gallon, I told Nick to stop at 10 gallons. I thought I must have slipped into California 😂
Fifteen miles down hwy 83, we arrived in Patagonia.
It's a beautiful, quaint little town in the Patagonia Mountains on the road to Nogales, an entry town into Mexico.
|Hey Dad! Found my Van!|
|Had to bail Nick out from the jail next to the office!|
After our visit to Patagonia, we went about nine miles further south to visit the ghost town, Harshaw, Arizona in the Coronado National Forest. Only one building standing, but
they do have a small boot hill cemetery.
Beautiful big old Cottonwood and of course Nick had to climb it 😉
|House with the purple mailbox that was up for sale for $229,000 last year has sold 😀|
Had dinner just after sunset. Went for the burgers and chips. We'll have rib eyes tomorrow night. 😋
