What I did
The Ajo Mountain Drive
The Arch Canyon trail, although what we traversed, was short, continues all the way up and into the large arch, the namesake of the canyon. We hiked less than a hundred feet above the warning sign, just to say we did it. It's about a thirty-five to forty degree slope. The footing is good, but the steepness would make it a real challenge. Lynn tried out her Montana-made walking stick today. The sticks are fashioned by two fellows from Kalispell, MT and given to the museum in Ajo. There's no charge for them. A great effort by two avid hikers!
We saw a few birds on the hike, but heard numerous singing in the lower reaches of the trail. The greenery this year is prolific. Good rains last summer during the monsoon and again this spring have made it so. We are reaping the harvest and are truly enjoying it.
Pete and Duffy are great companions and friends for us. We have shared our evening meals together, guaranteed tasty by Lynn's culinary skills. So far we've had marinated chicken, hot wings by Pete, and this evening mosticiolli prepared by Lynn's able hands. Our evening was filled with read and Lynn playing solitaire. I spent a few hours editing the photos for this and will add them in the morning and forward an email note to each of you who have contacted me. It's not to late to add yourselves to the list. Thanks for stopping by...
