for those of you who were asking Mittry Lake was about 12 miles east of Yuma Az, and Ogilby Rd is 12 miles west of Yuma in California. It gets pretty confusing with the time change, we though we would get an early start yesterday and go back to Yuma to exchange something we had bought the day before. after walking the dogs it wasn't until about 9am, that we left our campsite.Seems early enough but by the time we got back to the store in Yuma it was almost 10.45, got a few groceries and drove back to our campsite and it was still only 10:30. I think.
It was so hot here yesterday we just hung around the motorhome the rest of the day. Took the dogs for a walk just around sunset when it was cooling off.
Just after sunset the wind picked up and did it blow, all night, there was a tremendous screeching and scraping noise about 3 am, we looked out and couldn't see any thing, but we think this poor old tree which had a bad lean, finally toppled over.
we found this huge open pit mine
we then drove around the old roads and came across this
It looks like a place where they loaded the ore before they took the gold out.
We headed home for lunch, it is not quite as warm as yesterday, Skip and the dogs are snoozing, and I am about to find my book and relax in the sun.
