A friend and I decided to take a night trip up to Flagstaff for the heck of it after visiting Arcosanti. Stayed in a motel and drove slow back to Phoenix the next morning. Stopped in every rest stop on the way, stopped to hike through the woods. We noticed a Farmer's Market and promised ourselves we would stop there next time.

Just to finish the day we are having "Louisiana Steamer Pot" for dinner - supposed to be for one but we are sharing.
Obviously not icecream.
Ken not Sam.
