Monday, 14 May 2018 | Views [115]

Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument

Monday, 9 Apr 2018 | Views [128]

IT TAKES ABOUT TWO HOURS TO DRIVE THE 42 miles from Silver City, NM to Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument.  A bit more if you stop along the way to search for birds.  The Red-faced Warbler, another Mexican migrant, had been seen near one ... Read more >

Here's Lookin' At You

Saturday, 10 Mar 2018 | Views [70]

THE CATARACT IN MY DOMINANT “CAMERA” EYE has become so annoying that I decided to take care of it here in Sierra Vista rather than wait until we are in Colorado.  We planned on staying at the Ft. Huachuca FamCamp for 45 days, so there ... Read more >

NOTHING — IF TALIESEN WEST IS ANY INDICATION.  Connie found this Frank Lloyd Wright designed complex without any help from Paul.  In fact, Mr. Wright’s buildings are on our bucket list for 2018, and Taliesen seemed like the ideal ... Read more >

The Heard Museum

Thursday, 25 Jan 2018 | Views [115]

AS WE SETTLED INTO THE ARIZONIAN RV Park in Gold Canyon, we knew we would be pretty much on our own this time.  We stayed here two years ago to visit my old friend Paul and his wife Noreen, who live around the corner.  They are good company ... Read more >
