Thanks for all your kind comments about my recent travels.
On our last day in AZ Rich and I decided to head to another AZ state park. Maybe we should have explored Phoenix or Scottsdale but after driving back and forth across the area the day before I wasn't really looking forward to that. You know that I love city vacations where I can park the car and walk to everything. I just wasn't feeling like Phoenix had enough going on in one area to give me that feeling. I will just have to come back another time.
Our day started out with a late breakfast at Ted's hotdogs. We opted for the local "all-the-way" version. Very different than what you have in NC, but very yummy.
Then it was off to Lost Dutchman State Park. Gorgeous!
The park ranger said that it was really long and difficult to the top so we opted for another loop trail around the base which the ranger said would take 2.5 hours. It was a beautiful hike but we were done in a little over an hour... I guess that we should have tried for the top!
Neat rock formations.
This was one of my favorite hikes. Just gorgeous. We went through areas with lots of Saguaro cactus.
We also stopped at Goldfield. This area is still being mine for gold. We took the short train ride around the town. The conductor did a great job at going over the history of the area.
So it was a wonderful last day in AZ. We definitely have to visit again. I still need to see the Grand Canyon!
Thanks for traveling with me!
Have a great week!
