We moved on from Beatty to Seligman, AZ which was our most expensive campground and the absolute worst for internet. We are now in Payson, AZ at about 5,000 feet elevation. We are spending at least five nights here as Aileen is happy with the temperature which is considerably less than is current in Florence. Phoenix set another record yesterday at 99F so Florence would be pretty close to the same. We hope to get to Caliente early next week. It is only 109 miles from here.
On my way out of Beatty in the morning, I spotted two Moms and babies and the male
A few miles along the Titus Canyon road looking back toward Beatty
Looking ahead at my first high point
Looking toward the big hill that I went up to enter a high pass on the right
And looking back from that pass. If you look closely, you can see several sections of the road I traveled.
Again looking back from the pass
Closer view with two Subaru Outbacks crawling along
Looking ahead from the pass
Along the route
The mighty back roads CRV
Approaching Leadville a very short lived enterprise that was mostly a swindle by a stock promoter. Funny how some things don't change?
That would be me
Starting to approach the actual canyon
And in we go
The canyon section was at least a couple of miles I'm guessing. I didn't think to check as I was going through.
After supper, I took Aileen out to see if we could spot the burros. It turned out they were all five on their way in to town for a drink at a water tub someone had installed outside their fence.
