Long Walk and A Little Of This and That

Even though we drove up the canyon part way we still ended up with about a six mile hike today—saw the sheep again on the way up.  We hadn’t hiked this canyon before and found it beautiful with plenty of scenery and bits of turquoise glinting in the partial sun we had today.

We found remnants of old mining claims—foundations and poles from what looked to have been a shed of some sort--IMG_5901



Back home I fired up the big generator and vacuumed while I had a loaf of bread baking in the convection oven.  After lunch Michael was gracious enough to help me cover up the considerable gray hairs that appeared since I last visited my hair dresser in Billings—I didn’t turn out with orange hair—that’s a good thing!

Jim and Ellie along with Deb and Rod made a Yuma/Algodones, Mexico run today and I am the chief dog sitter. 

Our weather has been cloudy and windy today but still in the low seventies.  The weather man is predicting rain for Saturday and we are sure hoping it happens—this area is extremely dry.  Last year by this time we had over 2 inches of rain.

We are either going to Yuma/Algodones, Mexico tomorrow or Phoenix to look at a trailer—stay tuned for Michael’s decision!


  1. I remember dying my hair back in 1966 one time trying to give myself a 'Beach Boy' look. It ended up kinda orange but I liked to think of it as Strawberry Blonde. It was not one of my better ideas!! Will be anxious to hear how you make out with that trailer idea.

  2. I wish men could dye their hair as easily as women seem to do as my grey hair would be gone in a flash!

  3. I am beginning to feel real lazy reading about all your great hikes, while sit and watch the new granddaughter :)

  4. That is a bit too much of a walk for me.. but sure looked nice!
