A Busy Week!
The past week has been hugely busy. I finished my last few days at work in Flagstaff and then two of my boys, Zach (the youngest) and Jonathan (the oldest) came out to help me finish packing. Here they are enjoying a break!
We got everything done and had a day to spare, so we took a day trip to revisit some of our favorite places. Here I am at the Lomaki Ruins at Wupatki National Monument.
In 2009, they found two enormous intact pots in a gully where someone had placed them hundreds of years ago. I found them fascinating. I love that this one bears evidence of repair!
After our visit to Wupatki, we stopped at Cameron Trading post for Navaho Tacos. Always yummy and very filling! This is the "mini"size, which is more than enough for one person. We ordered two for the three of us and still weren't quite able to finish them! The regular is about 12" in diameter!
The steep walled gorge of the Little Colorado River is fascinating and in some ways, more impressive due to the sheer walls that are 1000 feet high than the more grandiose Grand Canyon.
We spotted this fellow enjoying the shade of some rocks. He posed for us quite nicely!
Our day ended with a drive along the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
Now I'm in Colorado and temporarily set up in my Mom's house until it sells.
I love the early morning view from her bedroom windows! So peaceful!
