stopping for lunch before heading further up the canyon
looking back at our highest point on the 'trail'
Sometimes I get an unexpected bonus and take a great picture :-)
marshy area in the lake - favourite spot for loons
When we arrived at the trailhead to start our hike we had forgotton that each vehicle needs a Recreation Area pass. We had five vehicles and nobody had any passes! In the past we always had enough passes to cover whatever vehicles we had with us. Not today. It was too late to go back to Apache Junction so we took a chance and headed out. Everybody was pretty anxious when we arrived back in the parking lot but, no problems, nobody had a ticket. Hopefully at this time of year they're not as conscientious in their visits to the parking lot. Anyway, we dodged a bullet this time. Next time we'll check on passes before we leave the RV park.
Art and I went out looking for RV parts for his bus yesterday. The Garmin GPS I have is a great help for getting around a city that's not too familiar. We were able to find the places he wanted to visit and we came away with what he was looking for (his wallet was $500 lighter though). Of course we had started out in the morning and by the time we were done it was lunch time. We found a Paradise Bakery, again using the GPS, and had a quick meal before heading back home.
The Resort put on a French Toast breakfast this morning, which I attended, of course :-) Later on I went to the golf course to see if I could get on by myself for some twilight golf. As it turned out the course was not busy at all and I was able to play 9 holes. My game was quite a bit better than the other day so I'm all smiles again. Hopefully I can do as well during our team play next week.

seems a little smokey from forest fires; south of Flagstaff
brief stop at overlook near Sedona turnoff
Such a realistic statue!
The End of the Trail - 18 feet tall
Tomorrow we will be on the road again. We expect to be in a RV Park in Amarillo, Texas or, if we don't want to do that we might stay overnight at the Flying J in Amarillo. I don't think we would have a repeat of our experience a couple of nights ago, and our motorhome is set up to be self-sufficient, at least for a few days.
