Weekends aren't what they used to be! With me teaching yoga on Saturday mornings, and Doug using his weekends to squeeze in home projects and time in nature when he can, we've been a bit limited when it comes to picking up and hitting the road.
For my local readers who know the state of Arizona, you'll know where we traveled, and for others who are interested you can view a map of our state and find these points of interest. We traveled through Payson, up past Kohl's Ranch, to Young, and then home through Globe, Arizona.
Ah! Nature makes us so happy!
When we got to Young we headed out to the airstrip. Doug and Lucky hiked to a water hole to look for deer tracks, and I sat at a picnic table and enjoyed some mandala time. ♥
As planned, we were in Young around mid-day and had a yummy lunch at Antlers - our old stomping grounds.
Mmmmmm.... Heartburn for days but SO yummy at the time! :o)
From Young we drove to Globe, enjoying the views of Roosevelt Lake and finally seeing a few wildflowers. I think we may have been a little late this year because there weren't a ton of flowers to be seen and/or photographed. The drive was beautiful, nonetheless.
We arrived back home at 5:00 p.m., tired and happy.
As for the slim number of wildflowers?
None of us minded one little bit.
