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.
