Road Runner BLM, Quartzsite, Arizona
This morning around 10:30 am Doug, Yuma and I headed out in his jeep for a ride back toward the mountains. It was a leisurely drive and we stopped often to take a few pictures, climb a few hills and take in the views. I hope you enjoy the photos I'm sharing.
Quartzsite is over that way. Doug and I came across this claim sign. Even in death the Teddy Bear cactus is beautiful. That's Doug way over there doing his word game.

A warmer day today and very little wind. The temperatures
reached about 75F/24C this afternoon, perfect for sitting outside
chatting with some new friends and some other well known ones as well. While Riley and I were having lunch Dave and Cheryl from Alberta, Canada drove up and not 15 minutes later Bill ( On our way....)and Patsy ( Chillin' with Patsy...)from Ontario, Canada showed up. They all settled into the front yard of the Stinger B chatting with Deb, Tom ( Celebrating the Dance ) and Doug ( Miss Adventures Travels ). After lunch Riley and I joined them. The chatter was non stop and the afternoon passed very quickly and soon they were saying their goodbyes, Dave and Cheryl first and soon after Bill and Patsy. We have plans for another meeting in the near the future, so the parting wasn't a final one for this season.
The outhouse at an abandoned mine. One of two cabins. The other one of the two cabins. The two abandoned buildings on the mine claim. The mountains are ever beckoning to me.

I hope you have enjoyed the visit. Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time.....
Take care, stay safe,
Great pictures of the mountains adventure. Those mountains look rugged. Had a great time at the HH.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed the ride, thanks for the invite. HH was fun, we both enjoyed it a great deal.Delete
Nice little cabin find. Always makes me wonder who owns it now.ReplyDelete
There was a sign saying something about 1906, and not to destroy the history. A second sign called it the Yellow Dog Mine. You could see that the sign about not destroying things didn’t apply to the folks that visited, lots of things that didn’t come from 1906 were scattered throughout both cabins.Delete
We too got together with Dave and Cheryl yesterday! They are a great, down to earth couple.ReplyDelete
Dave mentioned the Core Crush event as the reason they needed to go. It was our first meeting with them. Nice people.Delete
It was a great time seeing you all again.ReplyDelete
Looks like an interesting ride too!
It was nice seeing you folks as well. Any ride with Doug is interesting, even on the blacktop. Lol.Delete
