We went down, down, down for Cottonwood and skirted it on the by-pass (as it was again too big to be of interest to us) and we filled up with gas before the steep climb out of the valley for Jerome. Again, Jerome is one of those places you must see, but it takes quite a long drive to get to it from either Phoenix or Flagstaff. Jerome is an old copper mining town that clings to the side of a mountain. We had seen it on the other side of the wide and ...
There were stars last night above our tent and inside it; the air in the desert is super-dry, and when rubbed against the nylon of a sleeping bag, dog hair makes FANTASTIC shooting sparks of static electricity. Jake has a long coat with fine guard hairs; by morning, he looked as though he'd spent the night on a Tesla generator, and leaning in to hug him was like walking face-first into a spiderweb.

We found some good rocks in the shade for lunch. About that time Boni called about some LWML Ruth ...
... distance. The road was high in the mountains and had sharp curves, many with 20 mph speed limits. I don't like heights so scary hiking trails have been by biggest fear this winter, but I wasn't prepared for having to drive this type of road.
