I met up with Casey and Kim and we did two really nice bike rides. One was almost 13 miles long on old Jeep roads through sandy washes . We saw two really nice crested cactus.
The cactus on the left was the smaller of the two crested suguaro. The one belowewas huge. I call it the tree suguaro. It also reminds me of a butterfly.
For the last several years Casey and I have ridden our bikes out to a unusal rock formation out on Darby -Wells road just south of Ajo. Its a short ride on an old Jeep trail that now is best ridden by bike or ATV. It's full of short steep climbs and some technical stuff and really fun. The panoramic views of the desert from the rock are beautiful.
I'm off in the morning to head for Casa Grande. and the WINs dance Rally. My cell phone is giving me grief and the Verizon man said that it can't be repaired. I can't charge it or upload my contact svia the USB cable. So, I will be going to a Verizon store and confirm his statement. I just hate having to get a new phone even though the insurance will cover it. My phone is my modem to the internet so its behavior of not working is a double whammy. Fortunately, Hickiwan Trails has internet so I haven't been totally out of the loop. Anyway, if I don't return calls, it just means my phone is still not working.
