Not Doing Much.
We haven’t been doing much since the ride on Tuesday. Most of our friends have gone home and the rest are getting ready for the trip to Moab, Utah.
We had the last card game of the season Thursday night and said good by to those who weren’t going to Utah.
An Anniversary Dinner.
Friday 03/23 was the 34th anniversary of Patti and my first “Date”. To celebrate we went to the River Willow Steakhouse at the Blue Water Casino in Parker.
Dennis and Cheryl M, Dennis and Becky K and Dave and Jo Ann R also went with us.
Patti and I had the Fillet Mignon. It was succulent. The whole meal was great and we all had a good time.
A Little Shooting.
Saturday, Dennis, Dennis, Bill and I went out to a spot in the desert
to do a little target shooting. We have been trying to do this all season but could not get everyone together until now.
Dennis M. picked me up at around 10:00 and we drove over to Dennis K’s place where Dennis and Bill were ready to go and followed us in Bill’s pickup to one of the many shooting areas north of the golf course.
We found a good spot and set up on the tailgate of Bill’s truck.
There was a good berm here that looks like someone dug it out for a shooting range so we set our targets against the berm.
We spent about an hour blasting away at the clay pigeons with pistols, rifles and a shot gun.
Here is Dennis K shooting Dennis M’s 243 varmint rifle.
Lunch at Skull Rock.
On Monday I was sitting around reading a book and was getting pretty board so I suggested to Patti that we go out to Skull Rock for lunch.
We packed a lunch and by 11:00 we were on the way south on 95. We turned onto Palm Canyon road and headed east.
Bob mentioned that he might camp at Palm Canyon so we drove out the road to the Palm Canyon parking area and found Bob’s Van but Bob was already off on a hike.
We drove back down Palm Canyon road
and turned north onto Queen Canyon Road which is the trail to Skull Rock.
We noticed some Ocotillo’s blooming.
There were a bunch of ATV’s here when we arrived so we went a little farther along the trail to have lunch.
Big Horn Sheep.
After a while we finished our lunch and headed back down the trail.
We were cruising along when I saw a heard of Big Horn’s grazing along the hill side.
We counted an even dozen sheep. After looking closely at the photo’s I realized that they were all males.
A Little Walk.
As we were driving along, I was looking at the hills on the left and saw a low saddle that looked like it would be easy to walk to the top of the ridge. I pulled over and took a walk while Patti waited in the jeep.
On the ridge I found a good trail so I followed it. The small pile of stones marks the trail.
The trail headed into this beautiful Valley.
I didn’t follow the trail much farther than this. I returned to the jeep.
We continued out the road and headed for home.
That’s always a beautiful ride.
Tuesday morning we drove to Blythe, Ca. to get our Taxes done.
After the taxes we did some shopping at Albertsons for food.
After that we drove across the river to Ehrenburg where we got on the Ehrenburg/ Parker Road and drove north to Parker where we went to Walmart. After Walmart we went to a Chinese restaurant for a big lunch.
Okay, that pretty much catches us up.
