Mesa Beaver

Moved off  "The Mesa" a lil less then 2 weeks ago to rim country. Where I shall remain until old man winter chases me into the valley below. This is the same area I was in a few springs ago when we got 17 inches of snow. Although I don't mind the spring time snowstorm I really don't feel like get stranded in a fall one. May take a tad bit longer to melt! Rumor has it they got 14ft up here 5 years ago. Crushing houses, and Ponderosa pines were tipping over due to ground being saturated. Here is a few pics of my time on The Mesa.

New dishwasher

 Meet Ginger! For 6 months I been waiting for a sign to get another pooch, so a few weeks back while in town I ran across this lil Sh#t head. Pondered it for quite sometime, then the lady told me her birthday March 22nd, which was the same day that Candy had passed :(    Figured that was a good enough sign from the Universe to take her home.

Now my days are filled with GET OVER HERE! NO! and GOOD GIRL! spoken 100s of times daily. Were still working on the rules of her new lifestyle. She seems to be catching on more and more each day, and then forgets by morning :)

4 weeks in hiding

 No News is Good News! The above picture is of my forest hideout for the past four weeks. Had the occasional weekend passerbyers, but other then that was very quiet up until the holiday weekend.

During my stay not one drop of gas was used, about $130 of food was consumed, and the wobbly pop intake may have been a tad bit greater then that. Temps have been in the mid 60's to low 70's, and nights dropped into the low 40's. Elevation is about 9400ft, not a bad way to spend August in AZ.

 Fattening up camp buddies for winter.
Big Mama circling the Turtle her daily ritual not sure if she had found a great fondness for, or she just enjoyed scratching her ass on him? Whatever the case waking up at 5am with the van shaking can be a bit frightening the first few times. Off to the Mesa for a few weeks, then time to start a southern migration.
Thanks for visiting! Good Day!

Old Buddy's


Not exactly how I wanted to leave New Mexico, but at least I got a free ride back to AZ. Well kinda free Richard the tow truck driver says it would have cost about $500. Thats the 3rd time AAA has saved my butt over the years.

Bluewater Canyon Hike

 Hikes like these always make wonder if I could just through on a backpack, and disappear into the pristine wilderness not to return for months on end. Here's a few more pics of the canyon hike......
