The other day (I think it was Monday, but it's harder than normal to keep track of the days) we set off into the wilderness that surrounds us.
The scenery was less colorful than our failed drive to Willow Beach, less flowers and more rock.
With a few exceptions, of course.....
We intended to drive Boy Scout Canyon to it's end, but somehow we missed the turn (even given very good directions) and ended up driving along back country rds. 58 and 58A into the Black Canyon Wilderness.
What a pleasant mistake that was! Bumbling about has it's rewards.
At one point, as were ascending an unknown hill, my phone rang.....??? It was Pam. She said "is that you going up the hill?" How did she know?
|see Pam and John's tiny white Jeep?|
Great minds think alike, evidently, because they had just explored a spur road (58A) not too far from where we were! We backed down, and stopped for a short chat before they headed home and we continued our explorations.
Pam had promised a breathtaking view at the end of the road, and she was spot on! A beautiful slice of the Colorado River, a sliver of the bridge over the Hoover Dam and magnificent vistas in all directions.
We'll take Boy Scout Canyon road another day, we have time!
Today we read, took care of domestic business, figured out how to use our Chrome cast and baked a few cookies from the left over Christmas cookie dough I made over the holidays. I found it in the back of the freezer - Yay! It pays to have to sift through the entire freezer looking for ingredients to make interesting dinners 7 days a week. You never know what you'll find!
That's all from here!
