We inquired at the Border Patrol stop outside of Yuma that we had to go through and they were unaware of the accident, but did see wave a couple of ambulances through. When we reached Hwy 85 heading to Ajo (Hwy 86) there still remained two semi-trucks/trailers that were still on their sides. Quite a mess and not anywhere close to allowing travel on the road.
So, what’s out alternative?
|Our site for the night|
|Tanker emptying 4,000 gallons of diesel fuel. Something you don't see everyday.|
|Where's the yellow rubber duckie??|
|Happy Hour - Blue Moon with an OJ slice anyone!|
|Our first sunset in the Tucson Mountains|
|Nestled into our home site at the campground|
|Looking from the backside of where we were parked.|
|A Cactus Wren signing it's heart out!|
|The mountain range was absolutely breathtaking|
|A saguaro welcoming us to the Park.|
|So perfect, it looks like a postcard.|
|Meaning = Someone was here!|
|Just call me "George"|
|Copper ozidation in this rock because of water & sun|
|Who is that tourist?|
Another favorite at the museum was the Hummingbird Aviary where we were able to take a picture of a nest - with Mom and her egg. Try to image the nest measuring about 2” in diameter. These little rascals will always be our favorites.
|Still climbing with the landscaping constantly changing.|
|Very impressive rock formations along the way.|
|Yep. . .only 3,000 feet to go to the summit.|
|Voo Doos of Mt. Lemmon|
|Our first sight of snow this winter at 8,000 feet.|
|Mount Lemmon Ski Valley|
|Village of Summerhaven|
|Definitely takes your breath away at this elevation.|
Can't forget some of the delicacies from the kitchen that were made: Cranberry-Pecan Scones (for the road) and an Onion Tart that we paired with some delicious fish that we had for dinner one night. Yum!
