After choir practice, Don and I headed out for Tortilla Flats to spend the afternoon with friends from the park here who are spending a few days up there. Along Highway 60, here's a view of Superstition Mountain. Today is a little cooler than yesterday with a cloud cover, but no rain.After we got on the Apache Trail, this was another view of part of Superstition Mountain.View from the very winding Apache Trail. There's all this green stuff on the rocks that looks like it started out being some kind of moss, but the Arizona sun has baked it right into the rock.A view, through the windshield, of Canyon Lake from the Apache Trail highway. Water. Don is happy. We reminisced about the last time we were at this lake with Jack and Cathy Montgomery and the wonderful time we had. (Check out their blog and the wonderful pictures they took in Florida.)The first of two one-lane bridges.The second one-lane bridge.We arrived at the Tortilla Flats State Park where our friends were parked. Don and Madelyn are looking at something. Mike is looking at the camera.It wasn't long before I spotted a blooming Staghorn Cholla.A view from their campsite.The Palos Verde trees here are all in full bloom and I finally got a good picture.The Palos Verde tree/bush.The gang: Madelyn, Mike, Linda, Virg, Alex and Pat. See next picture.Pat, in the door way of their little camper. The man they bought it from said it originally was owned by Gabby Hayes. I'm researching that for Pat. How many RV'ers does it take to roll in the awning?After enjoying a wonderful meal of grilled burgers, shrimp pasta salad and carrot cake, we visited for a while longer and then the wind started picking up. On the way home, Don stopped at a pull-out so I could take some pictures of the view. It was still pretty even though it was cloudy and getting late.We sure enjoyed our afternoon with friends and the serenity of the countryside.
