LAST VISIT TO OUR PART OF THE DESERT FOR THIS TIME

The motor home is stuffed and the car is loaded including my bike hanging on the back.  Friends have been stopping by to bid us safe travels.  Supper is at and with friends then an early start is hoped for in the morning.   Its not that we have far to go, it is that I have a meeting at 10 am and need to be set up first.  As is usual, we wonder how this day has arrived so soon.

Some of the hillsides are covered in Brittlebush
