Leaving Southern Arizona

Monday, October 20, 2008, sunset

Got up early this morning so I could do payroll without holding us up. Had a few glitches since the website kept hanging up but got it done in about 45 minutes.

We left Audrey's Inn and went over to the Bisbee Breakfast Club for breakfast (!) and then got on the road at about 9:30 am.

We drove to Douglas, walked through the Gadsden Hotel and got on 191 north. What a godforsaken place. Depressed, depressing . . . Got stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint.

As we traveled further north on 191, the bleakness of the landscape lessened. Willcox and Safford were tolerable and the Black Hill Back Country Byway was gorgeous. We arrived at the Oak Creek Campground around 3 pm, sat around chasing the shade and read. And now a fabulous sunset.
