This morning, Yuma and I laid in bed till 9 o'clock because I was feeling so lazy. We got up, went for a short walk and then had breakfast. It is going to be another beautiful sunny day with a high of 66.
Kay came by in the afternoon and asked if I would help put up four security cameras. We managed to get up one and it works great. Took three hours, but it will be much faster tomorrow now that we know what we're doing.
To be honest, Kay did it and I helped. She told me a few days ago, she never listened to her husband's advice and I must say she wouldn't listen to mine either, but we got'er done in the end.
We left off with visiting Canyon Lake and ready to move the few miles to Tortilla Flat. Remember, it is a tourist town and I use the word town loosely. Actually it's one long boardwalk with stores.
There is so much beauty in these mountains.
Didn't take long to arrive at our destination.
It is crowded. Hardly a place to park. Beautiful location for a cowboy town.
All types of vehicles and did I say the mountains are everywhere and beautiful.
It is passed time for dinner, so I'm wrapping part two up. Tomorrow is a big day and hopefully a good day. We'll see!
Really wonderful pictures of Tortilla Flats. The mountains are beautiful, just as you said. Keeping fingers crossed for a good report tomorrow! Hopefully you can finish up Kay's security cameras quickly.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dolly. I'm hoping for good news, but if not Kay has said many times that i don't need to rush off.Delete
Tortilla Flats looks bigger than what I remember it. I guess we were lucky there wasn't a lot of people there the day we passed through on our way around the Apache Trail. I think we were in a bar or restaurant somewhere for a bite to eat. The walls had a lot of dollar bills and business cards pinned up so we pinned a 'Bayfield Bunch' card on the wall.ReplyDelete
It is a fun place on the weekend. Surprised so many people drive those windy, hill roads to visit, but they do. I remember peeking in one place and seeing lots of bills on the wall. I thoroughly enjoyed slowing down and visiting instead of just passing by.Delete
The mountains are beautiful! Sounds like you had a good day. Hoping tomorrow is a day of good news! Fingers still crossed...😊ReplyDelete
Thanks Deb. Had a great day.Delete
It's a fun tourist trap. The place with the bills on the walls is the Tortilla Flat Saloon. Always busy, food is ok. But, bet you had leftovers from Kay's feast! :)ReplyDelete
Still a fun drive and an interesting area to explore. Hope the rest of the Apache Trail opens for you.
Yes, it is a tourist trap all right. Not a dime from me though. I had enough food from Kay for two nights of leftovers. I think she thinks I'm too skinny. 😀Delete
Probably not so crowded on a weekday. What a fun town to visit!! Sending more good thoughts for the WL today!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Nancy.Delete
I've never heard of Tortilla Flats. Very pretty area. I'm sure glad I have RV friends that are teaching me about my native state.ReplyDelete
I know how that is.Delete
Tortilla Flats looks awesome and a great place to spend the afternoon!ReplyDelete
Yes. It was a fun visit and quite relaxing with all the people and the music wafting in the air.Delete
Ha. Do you wear a gun like a cowboy, in a holster, all visible and everything? Seriously? I'm from TX. So am used to them. Just curious.ReplyDelete
Nope. Few states allow open carry and Arizona is one. But I prefer conceal carry. Why give up the element of surprise.Delete
What a neat town. As long as our wallets don't come out, a touristy town is no worry.ReplyDelete
You're right Patsy. They all kinds of eating goodies to entice you but I resisted. It was a fun place for a short visit.Delete
