Today Irene and Michael took me to the Black Canyon which is right next door to Montrose - it is quite spectacular and as it was really hot (about 38 C) and we are over 1 mile above sea level here in the town and then went up into the mountains it was a bit of a struggle.
We saw a couple of guys scaling a cliff. They had obviously abseiled down and were climbing up when we caught sight of them. We think they were park rangers practicing rescues or just having a fun day out!
They collect the antlers that the deer drop each year and make things out of them. I like this totem like thing outside the shop - I have seen some wonderful creations from the antlers.
Irene and I came home and went to sleep and then went shopping at 8pm. It is really the best time for it - I thought there might be more people out but they must have all been at the drive-in watching Toy Story. I used to love going to the movies at a drive-in. It is such a shame they no longer have them. Open air movies like they had in Israel are an even better idea.
I got to practice driving on the wrong side of the road - believe it or not there are drivers here who do not take any notice of the speed limit and tail gate if you are going too slow for them. I got beeped because I was too cautious - you have to concentrate on staying on the right hand side of the road. Irene only has a small car and most of the other vehicles on the road are huge. The parking spaces are enormous in order to accommodate them so you know your car is not going to get dents from the doors of four wheel drives which is rather nice to know.
