Using the timer I was able to capture yesterday's adventure while it was happening. Such beauty, thank goodness it is protected.

Land Cruising Over The Weekend

This was my camping spot last night. The picture was taken early this morning while I was walking the dogs. It is just outside the monument. My rig is too big to camp at the Bonita Campground. All the better as I had the site all to myself and it was so peaceful and beautiful and all that kind of stuff. You can see my bike (circa 1989) that I took half-way up the mountain range. That was hard. I napped after lunch yesterday when I returned from that ride. But the views... Wow.

Old Floor

04/02/2008, Prison Camp, Mt. Lemmon, Tucson

I was hiking with the dogs through the ruins of the Prison Camp buildings and came across the last vestiges of what looks like a linoleum floor. I became fascinated with it. The tiles were almost completely removed (a very difficult job for those who have ever had the misfortune) except at the corner of the room, as if a bulldozer and demolition crew failed to complete their job entirely. As I studied other foundations, I discovered the same phenomenon again and again. I identified two colors which were used, a creme and a flaked red, presumably to match the red concrete floors they experimented with. Prison Camp was a Japanese internment and work camp during WWII. They helped build the Catalina Highway up Mt. Lemmon. I was taught about the internment camps in school, but I didn't know at the time we had one just outside of Tucson.

Back to the Mountain for the Weekend (Again)
Keith, Spring
04/01/2008, Mt. Lemmon, Molino Basin Campground

I'm starting to enjoy a lot more free time. I had a long weekend off and took the dogs and the Bounder back to Mt. Lemmon for an adventure. I was going to go farther, but I'm drawn at present to the mountain closest to my home. Plenty of time for remote exploring soon enough. This is just after we landed in the afternoon. Space #17, my favorite. I'm going to start using larger photos since people seem to like them, but maybe a bit smaller than this one. And I may be back to the Sea of Cortez for a short sailing adventure the second week in April. I'll keep you posted. Oh, and its an honor to be posted today right next to the Burns family from Wind Dancer. I'm a huge fan and have been following their blog for months.

Morning at Pichacho Peak Campground
Keith
03/19/2008

At first light Jake and Anne start to get restless and want to go outside. It's fine when living on land because there's pretty much always a safe and convenient place just outside the front door. Not so in a sailboat anchored in a harbor. The dogs are going to have to follow a different routine. I won't bore you with the details of the plan at this point, but suffice it to say, I have a plan.

My Own Private Magic Carpet

03/18/2008, Pichacho Peak, Arizona

As things at the office have begun to wind down a bit, I have been taking more weekend RV trips with Jake and Anne. This past weekend I spent Friday night at Molino Basin on Mt. Lemmon (again) and on Saturday I went to Pichacho Peak along the road to Phoenix. Had a long hike before sunset and then settled down for the evening (as depicted in photograph above). Watched a movie on board. Into the Wild. Somebody made a comparison between that movie and my plan. I don't think so. I'm not burning money for one thing, except on maintenance and repairs for my magic carpets. On Sunday I headed up to north Phoenix to visit a kid I represent in court, then drove back to Tucson and eventually had dinner at my parent's house. Now I'm back to work for part of a week. Heading off to go skiing in Park City, Utah on Wednesday.
