We left the Stinger "B" today to take a ride through the Dragoon Mountains. It was a beautiful ride under blue skies and did not disappoint for one minute. The issue would be the amount of pictures I took, well over 200. After going through them three times I did get the number down to just over 100 and made the decision to post them in two blogs. They are all pictures I just could not give up for our memory blog. So fair warning this blog and the next do contain a lot of pictures.
|Where we are headed today.
|Our turn off of AZ-80, Middlemarch Road.
|The pavement ended and so did the shiny clean Jeep
Tom spent time accomplishing a week ago.
|We are turning right.
|This road was not bad at all.
On our way we passed two pick up trucks with families who
had went this way to cut their Christmas Tree down today.
|No leaves but still standing proud Ocotillo.
|I stepped out to take the picture above,
and looked back at this view.
|What do you see?
|and looking out my window.
|When we got to the top tucked in on our right was
a Class C motor home. Either way he came it must
have been an interesting ride.
|Standing on the edge of this road
|looking out at the road ahead
|and the beautiful
|views in the distance.
|Taking a look back.
The Class C was just to the left here.
|The Jeep may need another bath.
|Definitely heading down.
|I believe this was the best view of the day.
|We are headed towards Pearce.
|Not a bad road ahead but it needed more wiggles.
|Just liked the look of the shadows on the road ahead.
|As we reached the valley we passed by a small residential area.
|I asked this donkey if it would mind posing and it looked up.
|Not wanting to be left out this one headed over.
|Looking over the Sulphur Springs Valley
|Just leaving the small residential area we saw this sign.
|We made a quick stop at Historic Pearce Townsite.
|The Ghost Town Trail intersects with
US-191. We were only on the Trail
for a short part of it.
|Turned here to head back towards the Dragoon Mountains.
Our goal to get to a Road numbered 84 and then 795.
|On the map it looked like this road would get us there.
It did not.
|Back tracking a short ways we passed this guy.
|I was pleasantly surprised he stopped long enough
and with some cropping finally a picture of a roadrunner.
|If you look on the right edge you will see a dog and
at this point that roadrunner was on the move.
