Tonto, Roosevelt, Jakes Corner....

Thursday produced a mid-70's F day; made perfect for a nice motorcycle ride with like minded friends.  We left Canyon Vista @ 10:30 am.
Riders:  L-R  Me, Jeanette, Bonnie & Fritz (Iowa) Lavonne & Dave (Iowa) and Gordie (Wisconsin)
The photo above was taken at the overlook near the Roosevelt Dam, overlooking Roosevelt Lake.

Walkway to viewing area at Roosevelt Dam.
Very low water level
The topography here is stunning.  The mountains (taking us to elevations over 4,500 feet), are ever changing.  The spires and formations are beautiful to view - especially on motorcycle.  These great highways and secondary roads (east, north and west) from Phoenix had us enjoying the changing landscapes.It is a beautiful part of the world, that's for certain.
Great roads.....
.....great rock formations.....
....fun curves.....
......big sky....
.....beautiful Roosevelt Lake....
....nice engineering....
.....great friends.....
.....shared stories....
....so many angles to view the horizon from....
....follow the leader....
.....quenching our thirst.....
...imagining stories that led to bras and panties hanging in the trees here......
...quenching our thirst after a hard ride....(well, not very hard)..
.....and closing the evening with a happy hour at our RV site, here in Canyon Vista.
We enjoyed a long motorcycle ride, on a beautiful day....but after rolling back into our RV site, everyone came over for happy hour and chat.   Our propane fireplace warded off the early evening desert cold that quickly forms once the sun goes down.

By 8:00 pm, our guests were gone, the fire was out and we settled indoors. 

Our Langley, BC grand kids (Brie and Easton) Face Timed us, last evening.  Easton asked us to come back home.  He was missing us.  And he had some things to show us too.  Well, we sure miss them.  Thanks to Face Time though, it is the next best thing to a personal visit.
Our Edmonton family sent a few photos of Owen's 2nd birthday.  


Looked like a fun birthday party.
Courtney and Deni decorated their home with toys when Owen's friends came over for the birthday celebrations.
 And that's it from here, for now.  thanks for dropping in.
