Surprisingly, I slept well last night and I thought my body was refreshed until I tried getting out of bed. It was then I knew this would not be an action packed day. It was quite warm already and Yuma and I were outside for breakfast.
Good day to continue my saga with State Farm. I logged onto the link provided to me yesterday and for the life of me could not figure out what I should do. After two or three efforts, I finally got the documents uploaded, I thought. It was not long before I received a call from a claims person. Finally, some action. He said one of the payment documents came through, but not the other, so we worked on trying to get that done.
The document I had would not display on his computer, so I finally called the towing company and had them send the document again and this time it worked.
After a few more calls asking me questions, he had enough to make his decision. Not good. Long story short, they will pay the first tow for $567.88 but not the second tow for $2839.38. The reason was that he called out to Quartzsite to a garage that handles diesel repairs and they said they could work on it. Neither of us is a diesel mechanic, so that's the end of that discussion. Not the decision I wanted, but I accept it. I'm just glad it's over at this point. At least I'm where I want to be, cost be damned!
Following are pictures of my journey down the canyon. Just beautiful. Thank goodness, I took the Tylenol, or I would have not made it. I made it down in two hours with only two falls, neither did nothing but give me a few more scrapes. I covered a total of five miles walking up and down taking almost 18,000 steps. A record I hope I never repeat.
|As tired as I am, this looks daunting!|
|Yuma would run down the trail a bit, but if I was out of sight very long, he would always come back to check on me.|
|Very old saguaro.|
|Yuma never lacked for water to drink.|
Hopefully, you get an idea of the beauty of this canyon. Maybe, this will inspire another person to hike this trail and see the beauty.
On my way home, I stopped to take pictures of the setting sun.
|Tonight's moon rise.|
