Cruisin’ Down the River

Cruising Down the River

We met with our river friends last evening and socialized until it was time for dinner. They drove us to the Elks Lodge, where we enjoyed some of the best Mexican food on the planet.

We retired to the trailer and enjoyed a very good night’s sleep with the exception of a brief howl from a nearby coyote, which woke us and the dogs up. We got them settled down after a few moments and fell peacefully back to sleep.

I took this photo of some folks cruisin’ southbound down the Colorado river when we were walking the dogs this morning. Click on the image to enlarge.

Don’s Cactus Bar, Salome, AZ

Last spring, Don’s Cactus Bar and Restaurant burned down. Today, we were pleased to see it’s up, alive and well, serving the Salome, AZ community and passers by. The Arizona Outback is alive and well. Click on the image to enlarge.

Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx Californianus)

Greater Roadrunner

This roadrunner was standing on the hill next to the road just east of our driveway while we were out walking the dogs earlier today. He stood and posed while I took a couple of photos with my little Canon A710 IS pocket camera. I generally carry the camera just for photo ops like this. Click on the image to enlarge.

According to Wikipedia:

The Greater Roadrunner, taxonomically classified as Geococcyx californianus, meaning “Californian Earth-cuckoo,” is a long-legged bird in the cuckoo family, Cuculidae. Along with the Lesser Roadrunner, it is one of two species in the roadrunner genus Geococcyx. This roadrunner is also known as the chaparral cock, ground cuckoo, and snake killer.

I’ll be getting the Christmas decorations up a little at a time as the holidays approach. Today, I placed the traditional Christmas “nutcracker” sentries and a wreath at the entrance to the courtyard. Click on the image to enlarge.

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend.

Not much to report today other than having this pretty little goldfinch perch in the mesquite tree behind the RV drive. Click on the image to enlarge.
