When we moved up to Cornville, we realized that our friends Geri and John lived close so we arranged to meet at their place today. They live near Dewey in a beautiful house with great views. (Can you believe I did not get pictures – sorry!) It was great to see them again and get caught up with each other. They treated us to a wonderful lunch and then went for a ride around the area.
This is the “dirt house” near them. It is called that because the house is built into the hill and the roof is even with the road:
Check out the view from this house:
Interesting metal sculptures in Dewey:
The pink car on Walker Road:
The story goes that in the 1930’s, a doctor from Phoenix was headed to Prescott on the forest roads and had an accident. He then walked to Prescott never to be heard from again. The car stayed where it was and eventually became a landmark for the Forest Service and the residents. The residents finally painted it pink and it is still there.

This is up on a dirt road and it is as far as the mail man goes – LOL! So the people who live beyond this point need to set up their own mailbox. How funny.
They showed us some great Forest Service campgrounds and lakes. This one especially was beautiful, especially with all those rocks:
John, Geri, and Andy:
We finished our evening on their back porch and talking about our future travels. Hopefully we will meet up again before they leave for Alaska. We are so blessed with the friends in our life.
On Wednesday, 25th, we just hung out and figured out where we are going next. After seeing all those forest service campgrounds, we decided that will be our next move. So Saturday we expect to head towards Payson and then towards Flagstaff area. Ahhh, can’t wait to have a camp fire.
So stay tuned, enjoy today, and hug the ones you love (and even those you don’t – it will take them by surprise – :-).
