"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Show Low, and Anniversary


IMG_0354 (Medium)

We departed Payson, heading Eastward and upward.  Show Low, AZ sits up on top of the Mogollon Rim.  The Mogollon Rim is a geographical anomoly that rises 1200 feet in a steep ascent from the valley below it.  The landscape goes from grass and shrubs to Ponderosa Pine in minutes.  We were heading for Fool Hollow State Park in Show Low.

A few days of just chillaxing (chilling out and relaxing, according to our SIL).

We did have Casita friends that lived in town.  We visited at their home for a delicious dinner, and they visited us at the park one afternoon for snacks and a few beverages.

While in Show Low, another anniversary rolled around.  Number forty nine.  We invited our friends to join us for dinner, so they dressed for the occasion.

They also presented us with some great gifts for the occasion.  Moon Pies and RC cola.  We were thrilled.

  After all the fun, we had a delicious dinner together at one of their favorite restaurants.

More great times, with great friends.  All brought together by a little white trailer…..jc


  1. Happy Anniversary! I haven't checked the fire status today- hope they didn't have to evacuate Show Low.

  2. Hope that fire at Show Low is not going to cause your friends to leave. Show Low is such a pretty area.

  3. Congratulations to you and Wanda!! Appears you're have a grand trip...Safe travels, especially with the fire in the area...Don't want you Guys to end up with a "boiled Egg"...Horst sends

  4. Congrats on 49 years!! Although neither of you look old enough to be married that long. That little Egg is a great conversation piece. Nice to make friends along the road. Glad you're out of that area now with all the fires.

  5. Happy Anniversary to a lovely couple!


Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome.
