5/8/15 Friday in Cottonwood, AZ (Verde Valley-TT)
After our usual morning routine we’re both on our lap tops while I’m doing the wash. Oops! We hear a gurgle in the sink. Sure enough the tank is FULL. That’s what we get for feeling so comfortable in our Miss Journey, like we’re in a regular house and don’t think about such things as tanks that get full. So my morning and much of the afternoon was spent working on the pictures and blog writing for the last two days. Then I relaxed with my book. John spent the morning working on his laptop, then after lunch I witnessed his taking a nap. I’d say he sure deserved it after the last couple of days. It was pretty cool and windy outside, so it worked out well to get our rest in today. We did manage a good 2 mile walk through the campground. Next time we need to take a trail, one by the river at least.
We capped off our day of rest with dinner out: Fish at the Homestyle Grill here at our campground.
This is at the beginning of
Bright Angel Trail. Can you see the people?
This is a prickly pear cactus. Note the yellow fruit that some people like to eat. From Wikihow: The prickly pear plant has three different edible sections: the pad of the cactus (nopal), which can be treated like a vegetable, the petals of the flowers, which can be added to salads, and the pear (tuna), which can be treated like a fruit. It was along our path on the Grand Canyon rim.
