View of Parker, Arizona from the California side of the Colorado River Well, it rained the day before Thanksgiving, and it was cloudy in the morning. The temperature has stayed below 70 degrees. We hope you all had a great day with family and friends.

The pictures were taken earlier this month. We were in Earp, California, right near the Parker Dam. We couldn't get over how many houses and condos were built on the Colorado River at that point. We felt like we were looking at Tarpon Springs from the Cotee River in New Port Richey!

From Earp, we went back into Arizona and stayed in Salome for a week. We left Salome and returned to Mesa for a few weeks. We took some pictures while we drove around. The Superstition Mountains and the Superstition Wilderness is seeped in folklore about the Lost Dutchman gold mine. According to the legend, the mine can be found by the help of Wheeler's Needle, but no one's found the mine yet!

The Four Peaks can be seen throughout the valley, and there's supposed to be some great hiking in the Four Peaks Wilderness. The last picture, and our news for the month, is the 2005 Harley we bought in Scottsdale last week. We are taking it slow right now, but we expect to cover a lot more miles of sightseeing and take lots of pictures.

On December 6, we are leaving Mesa for Yuma. We'll have some good pictures and stories for you to wrap up the 2008 tour. Stay safe, and write soon.
