Last Day At Squaw Lake

Sunday: (02/24) I was up very early and fixed myself a ham, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. then I was off to the Foothills to meet the Yuma Outdoor Adventures hiking group which had a planned trek out in the desert looking for a ghost town. The weather had other plans. Last night we had heavy gusts all night and they were still at it this morning. High winds and freezzing air with dust would have made for an less then pleasant hike so we called it off. I returned home and Lou served breakfast number two chili rellenos. While the wind blew until alter 4:30 pm we tinkered at home. Lunch was potato salad with weiners. Shrimp tostados for dinner.

Monday: (02/25) We did our dutie duty, showered in the parks showers then hooked up the jeep and headed out. We stopped at the Sun Garden date shop for more dates to snack on. then the Post Office to mail some letters and then into town. Breakfast was at Brownie's restaurant, Lou had her steak and I had what they called Potatoes O'brian. (Hashbrowned potatoes with pimineto and green peppers with a slab of ham and eggs on top). Lou got one last visit to the thrift store nearby then we headed over to the laundromat to do the laundry. Parking the rig is always fun with the toad attached.Then we stopped at Walmart to stock up since we're headed out to the boondocks at Organ Pipe Cactus NM. After getting gas in the Rv, price up 6 more cents since a couple of days ago, we finally left Yuma about 4pm. Since it was getting dark we decided to stop short of Organ Pipe at the Painted Rock Petroglyph Site 11 miles North of Theba, Az. We settled in as it got dark. For dinner Lou whipped up beef and rice with steamed asparagas, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots.
