This is being updated after the fact (while in Sierra Vista) since the availability to the web is "iffy" at best while there at Salome.
It was a very nice and short drive from Palm Desert to Salome, AZ. You'll find Salome in southwestern AZ on Hwy 60. Those that have been following our travels know we like this little park. It's not much to look at from the highway as one drives by, but the people make this a little gem in the desert. Our ten day stay here was wonderful as we had celebrated Dave's 59th birthday and a friends (Melissa Foster)???? birthday and the weather cooperated. Our morning and afternoon walks were full of sun, warmth and the scents of all the desert bushes.
One day we took a drive with Dave & Melissa Foster out to Lake Alamo. A favorite place for us to bass fish, though we didn't fish this day. They'd never been there, so we played tourist guide for them. Once again the weather was nice and the day turned out so wonderful. It was rich with grand views, sounds and the chance to see the mating dance of the Western Grebe on the water. After some calling, necking and cooing they rise up on the water and skeeter across the water quickly, as if holding hands. Sorry we don't have pictures of that, but you've probably seen the dance on National Geographic or some such show.
