This catch up will take us to Feb 17th.
As the temperatures dropped, we headed south to see our friend Dave in Yuma.
A quick stop in Quartzsite so that we didn’t have to drive a long way.
We were treated to beautiful light on the mountains.
Linda and Dave at the Pint House in Yuma. They carry a wide variety of beers.
I saw this funny sign and that reminded me of all the stuff I have sitting in a room at home…maybe I should open a store to get rid of it all.
The Territorial Prison site is well worth the visit.
Linda and Dave at the old entrance.
From the guard’s position.
The second entrance to the cells.
These were tiny cells and apparently the heat becomes unbearable in this part of the world.
For solitary confinement.
The regular cell block.
Linda had to look as well. A tiny room with a few chains in the floor so that prisoners could be secured. No direct light, only a slight glow from the ventilation shaft and no toilets…a hundred years later you knew.
For those that kept saying the 3:10 to Yuma…this was it…now there is a bridge.
A coach that ended up being used as a work car being restored at the Colorado River State Park.
Pierre checking the various posters of the Dams on the Colorado.
Tammie had recommended Mr. G’s as a great place to eat and as usual, she was absolutely correct.
Dave suggested a “date shake” and this is one of the big date farms in Yuma. The shakes are very good.
The date tree is getting ready to flower.
Big date farm.
As the weather warmed and we started our trek back towards Ontario; we left Yuma for Gila box.
Yet another one of these sunsets.
