|guys, guys, this is Gramma Pamma's house! guys, guys, let me inside!|
Since we've been here many times before, we're not really doing anything exciting. Just enjoying the beautiful, perfect really, weather and good friend's company. Here are a few shots of our very busy times.

|Tiny's - best burger in Arizona!|
Today we all decided to drive Reddington Pass Road from beginning to end. We had done parts of this road before, the first time in 2017 when we followed Jodee and Bill as far as Race Track Tank.

Dave drove and we enjoyed a nice day negotiating a rutted and rocky dirt road up and down numerous switchbacks, over shallow water crossings and eating lunch on a log in the sun, beside a small stream.

Toward the northern end of Reddington Road we drove through vast "forests" of giant, multi-armed Saguaro. Last year we saw a troop of several Coatimundi crossing the road in front of us near here.
|we wondered who built this large nest|
It is an unspoken rule on these excursions that the driver must stop, immediately and without complaint, whenever one of us spots something needing further investigation.
One of us often exits the Jeep in such a hurry she forgets to close the door behind her. This trip we found several (3 or 4) crested Saguaros that needed close inspection and photographing.
|satisfied, she returns to the Jeep|
Tomorrow we have lots of errands to do, and perhaps a yummy lunch at Vivace and Friday we're driving to Tombstone to visit with Jodee and Bill in their new home!
