Busy getting ready for tonights 45 minute evening program. We haven't hiked or done too much for the past couple of weeks. I think I'm ready for tonight, I'm sure we will have photos to post soon. Sherri did get a couple of photos of me conducting the Ajo Mountain Van Tour, ten visitors on a three hour tour.

On our day off last week we did go down to Sonoyta, Mexico for dinner. Sherri and I went down early with Brian and Hilda. We walked around for awhile to check out the sights. Here we are on the Plaza.
The church is undergoing a facelift and had a service going on inside, so we didn't get to see all of it in its full glory. Here are Sherri and I on a cholla skeleton love seat.
 The bell tower under renovation.
 The Priest's house and offices.
We met 12 other volunteers for dinner at Zarape's, an open air restaurant. Janet, in the white vest, works at the Monument's Visitor Center and is a citizen of both Mexico and US. Janet was our host.
 It was Jimmy's birthday so Janet ordered cake and balloons. Sherri with "Mini Maus", close enough for a Mexican street vendor.

We had a great time and ate some wonderful Mexican Food. We are planning trips to Sonoyta every couple of weeks.


  1. Looks like lots of fun!!

    You two are sure learning a lot about the area. We will have to pick your brains or better yet, hire you as tour guides if we get back out in that area ;o))

    Keep having fun!!!

  2. Looks like a great place to go back to every couple of weeks. You'll be the experts on it in no time. How's your Spanish?
