Our Location: Saddle Mountain BLM, Tonopah, AZ
We awoke this morning to dead calm, no wind of any kind. The sky was filled with fog/haze and the sun was hard to see for a while. We pulled out of our spot and headed for AZ at 7:45 AM.
Very hazy over the KOFA Mountains this morning.
We met Doug & Yuma of Miss Adventure Travels at the rest area on I 10 East between Quartzsite and Tonopah. From there they followed us to our current location. It's one we've stayed in before and have enjoyed.
This guy was floating slowly over the Saddle Mountain area this morning as we were setting up on our home dirt as George would say.
The wind has been steadily increasing all day and as I write this post we have the big slide pulled in and are going to keep it in as the winds are supposed to continue overnight and into tomorrow.
What a difference colour makes.
I have a few plans for tomorrow but I'll fill you in on those tomorrow or at least whenever my next post will be. Before settling in here we travelled to Saddle Mountain Vista Ranch where we dumped and took on some water, also emptied some garbage. It is about 5 or 6 miles from our location and convenient.
This guy is still standing and I thought he was finished last year when we were here.
A bit of a gathering this afternoon at the Igloo, as it blocked some of the wind but after an hour or so Doug & Yuma went home and Riley & I came inside. The temps are frosty here, only 56F/13.3 C but with the wind it doesn't feel very warm. Not getting any warmer either, brrr.
The mountains out behind and to the right of the Igloo. Can you see the face?
Can you see it now?
I called dad to tell him we made it, but instead told his answering machine. He'll be happy now, we have full bars on the phone.
Miss Adventure, Doug, Yuma and the little Silver Jeep, just across the courtyard from us.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all had a wonderful day.
Until next time.. take care, be safe,
