Bob headed to town with laundry in tow. He called me about 10 minutes after he left and asked if we should hook up and head down the road. We did! We ended up in Quartzsite about 4pm this afternoon. After checking in with Larry and Phyllis at La Posa North, we stopped and talked with Ron and Terry. I can't beleive how hot it is...No wonder Ron and Terry got a bigger generator to have the air on....
We got set up in our spot from last year. Got unhitched, got the satelite going and all is good. Only because it is starting to cool down. As I write this at 8:15pm it is down to 82 degrees...
I have to find the dog groomer tomorrow and get Carley in for a haircut. She is a hot dog!! Might chop my hair shorter too...
We drove by Thom and Judys place and will have to go over and meet them in the next few days. Also have to catch up with Jim, he's just down from us in his spot from last year too. I worked with him last year at La Posa North.
Have a good evening ya'all....

This is just before we headed down the 6% grade out of Flagstaff to Cottonwood. There is a lot of haze in the sky from the Calif. fires. We saw 3 Disaster relief red cross vehicles headed that way today.
We visited the painted desert and the petrified forest. The colors were beautiful.
This is the Painted Desert Inn.
At the Route 66 landmark. Route 66 stretched from Chicago to San Francisco. Maybe this is one of the original cars that traveled the famous highway!
Petrogliffs etched into the rock. They drew pictures better than I can.
Local mascot at one of the stops. He has posed for many pictures.
I have more pictures but will post them later,,,having trouble with the internet right now...

I was busy snapping shots of a few insects. Not an easy thing to do when the wind is blowing the branches...
We had a beautiful sunrise the other morning.
We stopped at an elk ranch 6 miles from Aztec and found this nice bull.
With all the gas and oil exploration going on here we see a lot of these pump jacks around here. I like seeing them because my dad used to work for Husky Oil Co out of Cody Wyo. Great memories.
Today we are in Aztec, doing laundry, getting groceries, etc. It is chilly here today,,only about 45 degrees and very windy.

Bob went fishing yesterday afternoon..He caught 2 brown trout. This is the first fishing of this stay at Cottonwood campground on the San Juan River. They were both approx. 15". Only got one photo. It was nice to get some dry fly action on the San Juan after fishing small nymphs last spring. Both were caught on a #20 Parachute Adams.
We'll see what the river holds this afternoon.
The colors are readily changing making this a beautiful place.
I will send pictures next post!

We are packing up and getting ready to leave Wyoming on Monday Oct. 8th. The summer has gone fast probably only because I worked most every day.
Bob had some good times fishing and hunting with Karl and Justin (his kids).
This is Karl with a 20" cutthroat caught in the North Platte river.
We've had snow and a lot of rain since I last posted. Lots of hunters have been staying in the cabins and RV spots. There have been a lot of antelope, deer and a few elk harvested. Also one moose was taken the other day.
A pic of a moose I saw up at the boy scout camp. Her calf was hiding in the bushes to the right. We actually saw 4 moose this day. The 2nd picture is of the Laramie River with the color changing of the fall leaves. It is really beautiful around here right now.
Snow forcasted for this weekend so we hope we can get out of here by Monday. Almost everything is packed away, just need to put the slides in, hook up and GO!
