Madera Canyon

Our adventure of the day was to take a very secondary road to Madera Canyon located west of Soniota. The map showed the road as a dotted line and it proved to be worse than a dotted line, narrow, dusty and teeth rattling. After about 8 of the 17 miles we were wondering what possessed us to want to take this road. The reward at the end was Madera Canyon, a very narrow, scenic canyon and birdwatching mecca. We enjoyed our picnic lunch and were visited by this little guy.

We traveled home on a paved road, we couldn't face the teeth rattling road again. It was 92 degrees when we arrived back at the RV, so we turned on the air conditioner, popped some popcorn and relaxed.

Tonight we talked to Mike's son and daughter-in-law. Their daughter, our granddaughter and a friend of hers are flying into Tucson Saturday afternoon and we are heading to Puerto Penasco, Mexico. We were getting all the instructions such as, "take their cell phones when you cross the border." Cell service in Mexico is beyond expensive and their parents don't want a nasty surprise when the girls get back. We are really looking forward to this trip.

After dinner, we sat outside where it was cooler and I practiced the flute--it is the most relaxing thing to do and Michael relaxes just listening to me. Life is great!
