Had a great day at Lake Pleasant north of Phoenix. We joined Dar's brother and sister-in-law, Dennis and Laura, who are soaking up some warmth here in the valley of the sun for a week or two.

Our time in Arizona is drawing to a close for this Winter. Will begin our slow crawl back to the PNW in the next few days.

Sunday, Mar 5 drive on Box Canyon Rd through Santa Rita Mt Range...single lane with occasional wider spots, sharp blind curves, and a long way down. Took Dar's breath away more than a few times (hyperventilating).
