So everyone must remember while traveling through areas that have seen little rain and are dry with deserts and forests to be extremely careful about fire, no matter where in this country that you are. No throwing matches or cigarettes out your car window, make sure camp fires are extinguished, and if you do off-road stay on designated trails and obey fire danger warnings.
We made this trip on Memorial Day weekend from Arizona to New Mexico and as we drove north through Payson, Heber, and Springerville we were lucky enough to encounter snow. Real, big flake snow! It was wonderful!
During our drive we came across this field of satellite dishes. I have no clue what they are for and if anyone knows...please leave a post because I'm curious. They were just west of Riudoso and before the Valley of Fire.
Our off roading was limited, but we were able to go out in a group and run one trail in Coyote Canyon. We had a group of about 12 FJs. This trail was similar to trails that we run in the Florence, AZ area...dusty, cactus, rocks and oh, so much fun! After the run we met back at the campsite and had great food, music and a raffle.
And, here's a picture clue of an upcoming post...can you guess what this is? If you guess correctly (if more than one I will draw out of those that guess correctly) I will send you one embroidered ring. Just post your contact information and I will name the winner on Sunday, June 15th. (so leave your comments by midnight, Saturday, June 14th)
