How does time fly by so fast?

My gosh, it's been almost a month since we last posted. It must be this fast-paced life we are living. But then, after you read this you will ask, what do they do with their days. Anyway, after we left Las Vegas we went back to Lake Havasu City for a couple of days. On Tuesday the 29th we took a jet boat tour up the Colorado river thru the Topock Gorge. This is about a 2 1/2 hour trip that goes about 45 miles round trip.

On the way up we saw the lone wild Burro on a hill top. Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge it so it is visable. Later we saw a small group of burros along the river bank on the way back.

On 2-7-08 thru 2-10-0 the South West Lazy Daze group had an outing at the group camping site in the Cave Creek campgrouds where we are staying. We joined them on their first group outing in January 2007 when we had a Lazy Daze. It was nice to see some of our old friends from the first outing and to make some new friends. There were people from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, Nevada, New Hampshire, Arizona and, of course, MINNESOTA.

Every night we had a campfire.

There was always alot of socalizing, eating, hiking and one day we even had a Strong Man contest.

Sandy and I have been taking it pretty easy during the day and watching the sunsets in the evening.

We have done some hiking on the wonderful trails in the park to get some much needed exercise and take in the beauty of the desert after all the rain. The wildflowers are just starting to bloom, but we will have to miss the prime bloom because we are leaving the area on the 25th to head down to Tucson.

Below is a "mutant" Saguaro cactus we saw along the trail. We've never seen one like that before.

Guess I had better get back to doing nothing but soak up the warm sun and listen to the birds. We miss all our family and friends so it will be nice to get back up north in a couple of months.
