8:21 am - Wednesday - November 1st - Lone Rock - 51º F, humidity 56%, wind 8 mph out of the west.....forecast high for today is 74º F in paradise.....clear blue skies. Woke up this morning to a 90% state of charge on our house batteries!
We were up a little later than normal Tuesday, but that's okay, right? We're retired....we have no schedule.....at least for another week (we begin working our new job November 7th). We have kept ourselves on Utah, or Mountain Time even though we are less than 1 mile from the Arizona border. That means sunrise is not until after 8 am, which, in turn, means we usually don't get out of bed until after 8 am. So, you might be wondering why we don't just switch out clocks over to Arizona time and get it over with. Well, we have been living under Mountain time since mid June and we just hate having to adjust our internal clocks any sooner than we must. We will be moving the Newell into Page, AZ on Wednesday, and driving the VW to SoCal on Thursday for the wedding I wrote about yesterday, so until then we are still on Mountain time baby!
Driving south on US-89 a week ago we passed a turnout called the 'Toadstools Trailhead'....I remarked to TLE that we should drive back there later in our Lone Rock stay and do the hike and see what the 'Toadstools' were all about. Well, Tuesday became that day. The trailhead is about 17 miles north of Lone Rock, and we arrived there in less than 20 minutes.
