Take special notice of the "Road Pic". That is the pic that got me in this mess!!!!!
departing odometer 26761........arriving odometer 27054. We drove 293 miles today to Anthony, TX. The pics on this log entry are from Monday, November 14th at the Coronado National Park. It was a beautiful drive with many scenic vistas of the Catalina Mountains. The trip up the Catalina Highway can be compared to a trip from Mexico to Canada, because the vegetation ranges from the Giant Saguaro Cactus in the lowland desert to pine,fir,and spruce trees at the highest elevations. Elevation from Tucson (2000 ft) to about 8000 feet at Mount Lemmon. We made a few stops and had a picnic lunch....our last stop was Windy Point Vista.....a very unfortunate one for me!!!! It was absolutely breathtaking and in my exuberance to take a picture of the road we traveled, I jumped down from a viewpoint (a rock) and injured my heel bone and twisted my ankle. Just what this trip needed, a little excitement!!!! Oh well, we are headed home anyway........looks like I'll be in this boot from the orthopedic doc for 4-6 weeks!!!!
