We've seen some bighorn sheep on the hill in front of our rig, but I've never been able to get a picture of them since my camera doesn't have a viewfinder and, at maximum zoom, it's almost impossible to tell exactly what I'm shooting at, especially on a sunny day...plus they'd wander around, making it even more difficult to find them.

Well, today is overcast, and the two bighorn sheep are laying down in a shallow cave.  It took me several shots, but I finally got a picture of them! 



Here is a picture of both Blaze and Gracie doing what they do best...sleeping:




We took off last Friday, March 9, headed for Tucson to visit with Blaze's breeder.  We spent Friday night at Jim Kortsen West Pinal Park west of Casa Grande which is free.

On our way into Tucson on Saturday morning, we stopped at Costco and then headed on to Tari's house where we backed up the fifth wheel into the space she has set up just for that purpose.  We had a great visit with her, and a delicious steak dinner that night.  Blaze had a chance to run the fence with some of her dogs, most of them showing more interest in Gracie than in Blaze (they were probably wondering if she was a small snack we'd brought along for them...LOL!).

On Sunday morning, we had breakfast and coffee with Tari, and then headed to Justin's Diamond J RV Park just down the road, where our long-time friend, Lloyd, was nearing the end of his 3-month stay.  We got together for happy hour and had a nice visit with him. 

Monday after breakfast, we headed to Wal-Mart to pick up groceries and a cap for our sewer pipe which had gone missing.

We left Tucson Tuesday morning and spent the next couple of nights at an almost-free area in Ajo ($3 per night). 

Wednesday we were back at our space near Brenda, where we will spend a little more than a week before heading on our trip back north for the summer.  We've allowed a month for the trip...route and destinations unknown at this time.
