We went to the pub down the highway last night with the Colorado group and Aileen's Sockeye Salad seems to have been safe. Today Aileen is cooking three large racks of ribs and we are having lunch together with the Colorado crew plus another couple, cousins of one of the crew, from the Phoenix area. We had a game of 2500 with them last night after supper and Aileen was the winner.

A Crested Saguaro. I may have found a so far undiscovered one. At least nobody has ever mentioned it to me.

I took this Ocotillo flower from the driver's seat in the RZR as we were dropping down a steep hill. The background is the hillside on the other side of the valley.
