So cool up here. Literally! Highs in the sixties, overnight lows about 45. Man I needed this. I am not alone.
Someone besides myself is enjoying the Little Colorado River
The fine folks at the Butterfly Lodge Museum gifted me two books for speaking on Saturday. Lounged around this morning reading one of them: "On The Road to Nowhere: A History of Greer, Arizona, 1879-1979," by Karen Miller Applewhite. Great stuff. In the 1920s locals called automobiles "Tourist Machines." Kids went barefoot from April to September and one oldtimer claimed:
"I left toenails all over those mountains."
