Had to take a quick shot of the old truck in Jerome on the way through.
The drive up the mountain from Jerome heading south is breath taking. There are some steep winding mountain passes that give some very special views down the valley but there are not a lot of places to pull over and take pictures.

When we got back to the Ponderosa, the Sedona hills were shining red in the setting sun. Money can not buy the scenery we have out our back yard. We are so thankful for that and marvel at the many wonders we see as we travel this country.
About a year ago we had the pleasure of meeting the Darby family in the same spot where we are camping now in Cottonwood. Dave, Julie and their 5 children won our hearts with their attitude toward life as they travelled America in their motor home and shared with us some of their experiences. We have stayed in touch with them over the last year and quite by accident, Daves parents decided to dry camping just a few feet down the road from us. We managed to meet up with Garry and Lynda and they agreed to join us for a wiener roast tonight. What a wonderful couple and we had a great time sitting around the bonfire telling stories and roasting SmoHoes. We hope our paths will cross again in our travels. Thanks for dropping by.
There is always something mesmerizing about the fire as it burns down.
Tonight we are camped on BLM land near Cottonwood AZ at 34.66837, -111.9620 and this is the view looking from the bonfire to our window.
