Christmas Lights and Last Morning Near Ajo

Monday, December 21, 2020

Today we will bring in the slides, hook up the Jeep and be off further west. Our destination Ogilby Road. First our morning coffee watching the sun come up over the mountain near us.

The sun's light 

just starting to touch  the hills

and the bushes around us.

We see the light touching the floor

and desert around us just as it

 makes its way above the mountain.

When it finally makes it way above the mountain 
everything glistens in its light.

We had a visitor this morning 

it kept coming towards the feeder then turning back to 

the high branch. After several attempts 
it finally decided to take a sip.

Ready to go and I took one last picture of our site.

There goes the Stinger "B" we need to dump and fill our
fresh water tank before we hook up. 
It has been a great spot but it is time to move on.

We had planned on leaving today but decided to stay one more day. Doug and Yuma came over for our last morning chat before they took off for Yuma to get the batteries replaced in the White Lion in the morning. It has been a very enjoyable 9 days parked out here off of Darby Wells Road next door to Doug and Yuma and we look forward to seeing them again down the road.

Yuma running ahead to their rig parked down the road.

Yuma is the co-pilot.

With one last picture, a see you down the road, and a wave

they are off.

We spent part of the day packing up and part of it sitting on our patio.

Tonight's sunset.

Just after the sunset we took a ride into Ajo to see if we could see any Christmas Lights around town. The big disappointment was the tree was not lighted. We took a quick ride around town and did see several of the blow ups up and glowing.

Is it just me or does this Santa look a little creepy?

This was my favorite. 
It looks like Mrs. Claus is peeking through the tree branches.

We had planned one last campfire but just as we sat down
to enjoy it the wind picked up and sparks started to fly.
Tom quickly put it out and we retired inside for our 
last night in this quiet lovely place.

We are so glad you stopped by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
