Awesome day today. It looked rainy and thunderstormy this morning, but we went up the mountain anyway. It was raining so the front road was closed. That meant no tourists, which was perfect for us. Rusty has a four wheel drive Jeep, so we went the back way up the mountain, all the way to the top. We brought stuff like beef jerky and bottled water, and a giant sleeping bag, in case we needed to, uhhhhm, rest.
I did manage to take a few shots before the batteries went out.
And we did take a nice nap. Actually we napped twice, and er, slept in between. We both love to nap, so when we get the chance, we do it a lot.

This is the only shot that came out halfway decently. The road up Mount Lemmon was built entirely by convict labor back in the 1930’s. Interestingly, no one knows exactly how many convicts died during the construction because no records have survived, but it was quite a few. I was told that they assigned men serving life sentences who had no families. That gives you an idea.
But I thanked them for building it for us anyway.

Be Loved,

    I don’t nap, but I do crawl in sleeping bags.

    The drive up Mount Lemmon is one of the most amazing drives in the Southwest. I’ll never forget it.
