|Catching the sunrise on the north side of the mountain|
You’d think a ‘worn’ path would be helpful but it was worn into a washboard/rut sort of path so difficult to stay on the straight and narrow. Because of the slow incline, I felt winded easier and my ankles felt the pressure. When we got to our destination on the bend, we used our sticks to guide us up along the fence line to get a better view of what it is the bighorn ship (renowned for this area) come down for and where they drink. Very interesting!
|The guys were a fair bit ahead of me at the catchment|
You can see the washboard roads
|And here you can see where the water is collected|
|We all agreed that this was a great practice to support|
the wildlife in this area
We didn't see any bighorn sheep though, I'm sure they have specific morning
and later afternoon appearances
|No, not a giant Tarantula, just a dead cactus|
|And the sun popped on the other side when we were almost 'home'|
When we left there, Bill drove into the ‘famed’ blm Craggy Wash, north of the airport. We’ve heard so much about this place to camp so decided to check it out. It wasn’t long when we all learned something, uh, “No thank you”. Maybe we’re too particular (fussy) but this isn’t a spot we’d go to boondock unless it was a last resort. Anyway, now we know. I know many have found a nice little haven in here and that is great, it just wouldn't be a place we'd settle in.
We drove home around 2:30 where Clemson was happy that his Daddy made it back on time to feed him his supper. Good grief! We must starve the poor little guy the way he dances around. I caught up on my post and joined Bill in our recliners with my book. After 40 winks, for my sweetie, and probably 10 for me, we realized the day was half over. I got a couple of burgers out of the freezer to beginning thawing and sat back down for an hour.
Bill lit the Weber at 5 and grilled our supper. With all of the toppings, lettuce, mayo, mustard, onion, bacon, cheese, relish and ketchup, we didn’t need a salad on the side. Oh my, it has been a while since I’ve had a burger and these tasted awesome! For dessert, I’d bought a Jellied Salad so we shared some of that.

|It is rough and indeed 'craggy'|
|The rocks are pretty though!|

|Other than a beautiful picture, I notice spots on my lens again|
Time for a cleaning!
We’ve had a fun day again today with a little bit of variety from previous days. I hope you’ve enjoyed whatever you found yourself doing and wherever you are.
