Well we had a very good time with Tammie and Josh soooo nice to have company, we may have been a little cramped but it work out just fine.We did part of the Apache Trail loop up into the Superstition Mountains went to the old Goldfield mine site did the touristy thing there, then up to Tortilla flats for lunch and ice cream, they have prickly pear ice cream there. We found the worlds worst outlet mall,,, what a joke then went to a regular mall did some shopping and out for Chinese dinner. They got to come look at our winter home, the old owners still have clean up to do there, we are off to Mexico for a few days everything should be ready when we return. Was sad to drop Tammie and Josh at the airport can't wait for when everything at the house is ready and they come back. We are off to visit at the daycare in Mexico and to check how the building is going and when Norm will be able to drywall there.

This afternoon we drove part way around route 88 into the Superstition mountains up as far as Tortilla Flats, the road was closed past here due to flooding and a wash out.The route passed the Goldfield ghost town and mine, Canyon lake, past rocky mountain peaks and many cacti, a beautiful drive. The road is to open after the 21st and we will have to go drive the whole route then. We had lunch at Tortilla Flats in the old west restaurant, Tortilla Flats is the last remaining stage coach stop along the Apache Trail
