It wasn’t making an appearance yet so I decided to step back inside and wait a bit. I glanced at the west mountains and caught a glimpse of this beautiful dark brown and white burro. I quickened my step inside and switched out for my zoom lens. Oh, he is so beautiful. Bill joined me and we were tickled when he bellowed “good morning, Canadians!”. We’d never heard them call out before. In answer, a young burro from behind our Suite called back in a gentler reply.
|Don't look at the dirt on our nose but the reflection instead|
|and finally the sun popped over the mountain|
|Love this untouched photo of the water and sky|
It was by fluke that I spotted what Bill figured was a bald eagle swooping high over the water. He tried with his zoom lens to capture it. We got photos of each other and had some good chuckles before heading back the way we came.
|Not bad for a selfie!|
|I love this photo!|
Bill ordered us all a coffee and we sat at the lovely cedar plank bar to drink it. I remembered the bathroom floors being covered with pennies so suggested that Rob and Pat visit them, whether they ‘had’ to or not. We probably visited for, at the very least, 30 minutes before heading back the same route we came in on. There were a couple of ‘iffy’ spots in the washes where the sand was deep, causing our wheels to ‘hover’ slightly in our 2-wheel drive. Rob and Pat truly enjoyed that journey.
|Beautiful day for a country drive|
|A very delicate rattler's skin|
|Dollar bills on the ceiling|
|It is a cute little place|
|Bill left our own dollar bill|
|Wayside parking lot|
|There is a story to this picture|
The one below is the one Bill took of me, at this same saguaro
Today, I brought a buddy. 😀
First road runner sighting

This was a great day. Thank you for checking it out with us.
