Our Location: American Girl Mine Road, California
I slept well until shortly after 2 AM but I also went to bed early around 8 pm as I was very tired. I've been driving for a few miles these past few days. I enjoy driving but it does get tiring after a while.
|Snow on those mountain tops way off in the distance.|
|You know we're close now, don't ya?|
We were both up tucking a few things away and grabbing some snacks for the truck shortly after 7 AM. We were on the road by 7:45 AM. A kind of cloudy type sky and the temps reading 45F/7.2C. Pointing the Big Dog's nose west we once again ran along I-10 West.
|Sorry for the reflection from the window, but still a good photo.|
|We left Gage, NM this morning and crossed into Arizona a short time later.|
Our original destination was going to be Empire Ranch for a week but a check of the long range weather forecast had very low temps, very strong winds, lots of rain and even some chances of snow, so we opted to head on down the road. We couldn't decided on any place we wanted to stop now as we would be there for a week with the holiday weekend coming up and so we agreed that with the weather being iffy at best in most of the areas we would just head to the surest thing. Yuma! And so that's what we did. We simply pointed the Dogsled in that direction and yelled,' Mush."
|It's a long way down there folks.|
A few stops along the way and some leg stretches, a few phone calls and by 5 PM tonight MOUNTAIN time we arrived here at our spot for the next while. The long range forecast looks wonderful and we're happy to be sitting for a while again.
|Past this in Tucson, AZ. Some kind of big playland.|
While we are actually in California we will keep our clocks on Mountain time as Yuma is the biggest shopping area near by and we will be using their 'time' to keep us in tune with shopping and stuff while in this area.
|HRH Miss Kitty was looking around as we drove. She normally stays in carrier but today opted for a different view.|
Talked to both my SIL Janet and my dad today. Dad was happy to hear from us, knowing we are now going to be sitting here for a while just resting, soaking up the heat and enjoying the sunshine. Janet was probably happy to hear from us too. Haha
|We were happy to see this sign, knowing we were a short distance from our destination.|
Tomorrow I'll catch up on the comments and my reading, for the past couple of days I've just been too tired at days end. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
|I snapped this just as we finished putting the feet down.|
Until next time... take care, be safe,
|This is one of the reasons we enjoy the desert. Good night!!|
