San Jose

After a couple days exploring San Diego we headed off to San Jose and spent the day with Nichole and her family. It was a good day having a visit and relaxing. It was time to start heading home as things were starting to need to be taken care of.

Touring San Diego

Here I am just a tad nervous of the landing.

San Diego

Making our way to San Diego we went through this pass, past Devils Canyon and Devils Canyon II. On our way up to the look out tower we cam accross these strange sightings. We never saw anybody, saw some abandoned vehicles, (also this strange one). I am not sure if these are scare crows or mementos of some poor lost souls. The whole area reminded me of something horror movies were made from.Creepyyyy.

We had a busy day today touring the Yuma Territorial Prison. When we were done there we slipped across the border into Mexico, had a few Cervesas done some browsing through the shops in Mexico, it was a great afternoon. Made it back to Yuma to put our feet up to relax a bit now.

Tombstone Arizona

All the lumber used for shoring beams are in perfect condition. They don't rot because of the perfect weather conditions in the mine. Appaerntly insects & such don't like being so deep in the earth.

Well Tombstone was awsome. We took a carriage ride on an old Stage Coach, Took a mine tour, (can't believe we did that after yesterdays experience) we watched live performances of some famous wild west gun fights. Spent some time walking around the town taking in the sights. No wonder there were so many fight...the main street had more than 106 Saloons, the popular brothel was something like 6 blocks by 2 blocks in size. That was just one place. The ladies of the night had to be registered and pay a licence fee. Quite the history in this "little town". It was well worth seeing.

Colossal Cave in Tucson AZ

What a visit!!!! I would do this a few times it is so amazing. The temp stays about 70 degrees all the time in the cave and at times we were 13 stories below ground, truely marvelous. At one point as were behind the group, ( we were bringing up the rear the whole tour) taking a photo op picture we had something weird happen. Larry took a picture and went to take another as he went to take it he was waving and trying to move the camera around so he could see me, and he snapped the picture telling me something was wrong with the camera setting, then he said never mind there you are now and took another picture. He thought the one picture he at least had my feet lol. We hurried on our way to catch up with the group and finished our tour, visiting other parts of the park. When we were back in the room we got talking about it and Larry jokingly mentioned the ghostly blob blocking me out of the we got looking through pictures and it is kind of freaky how you CANNOT see me at all in the photo. 1st picture I'm in...2nd picture I am not in (taken in the same minute) 3rd picture I am in (taken the next minute). Larry thought I was joking about ghosts being down there until I showed him the photos....Where O Where has Connie gone? The Hohokam Indians were the first people to live in the caves over 1000 yrs ago, around 900A.D.
