Winding Down For The Big Holiday

We're on our way home for Thanksgiving and our route too us through the Fort Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona. We were on State Highway 60, traveling between Show Low and Globe.

The road is very windy, with lots of tight turns and a few hairpins which take you down to the canyon floor before you start up the other side. I took this picture on the other side. You can see part of the road in the picture and also the river that runs through the area. This is what it looks like on my mapping program:

We rarely run through here, but this was the shortest route from Point A to Point B today. I suppose it would be a nice route if you like the mountainess desert (which I do not) or if you like dirt (which I do not) or if you like cactus (which I do not). But it gets us home. And what's at home?

T - U - R - K - E - Y.

Since Ed and I start the dreaded UPS run on Thursday morning at 2am, we are doing "Thanksgiving" tomorrow. And I don't have to cook a thing...my Mommy is doing it all.

Yay for Turkey and yay for Moms!!
