Yesterday morning we went to mass.  We both were surprised when we walked in and went to the
holy water fount.  Rocks!  Yes rocks, not water.  Apparently this is a desert thing. 

see Cindy hiding in the rocks?

Cactus growing in a tree?  Yep!
After we took a very nice scenic drive through the mountains and high desert.  Started out driving past the observatory then stopped and did a 2.4 mile hike up to an overlook of the Sawtooth mountains.  Then continued down around to the Chico tanks (just a half dried up pond- but since they haven't had rain in over a year- water is a precious thing out here).  Then enjoyed a picnic lunch.  Continued our drive out through the desert.  Pulled over once we had a cell signal and called Bevi and Ella. 
Then we drove into Fort Davis and found a fudge shop.  Had some ice cream and bought some
fudge for later.
I told Cindy that we need to stop "vacationing" and slow down.  This is our lifestyle for the next
few months.  We need to just enjoy being out here.
