The Ides of March

Today is the 15th, Julius Caesar’s Ides of March.  We have been busy relaxing here at Phon D Sutton Park in the Tonto National Forest.  We have been going out to dinner or lunch to avoid the 90 degree weather here near Phoenix.  Museums have helped, as well as the shade of rigs and awnings.  It sure is nice to sit and relax with friends like Denny and Susie Orr.

We saw this hawk back at Usery Mountain Park.  DSC06361DSC06362

At Goldfield on the 12th, a former mine, we walked through the tourist stores.  IMG_20130312_143207_243IMG_20130312_143403_386IMG_20130312_144003_058

Then yesterday, the 13th, we enjoyed the Superstition Mountains Museum, which is also on Apache Trail.  IMG_20130314_134417_947IMG_20130314_151743_179IMG_20130314_152000_614

Today, the 15th, Marilyn and I went to the Arizona State Capitol Museum, which is housed in the former capitol building.

After returning to the house, we enjoyed the sunset from various perspectives. DSC06365DSC06366DSC06368DSC06369DSC06375

And my final picture of the evening resembled part of a young lady’s anatomy.  DSC06373
