This was our stretch stop before we climbed that serpentine stripe of black up into the snow, and on to Payson and the Mogollon Rim.
The kids were building sand castles in a wash rivulet …. digging in black sand their grampa woulda put in buckets to pan at home…. and collecting spent brass left by foolish and careless country fucks who wanna shoot just anywhere…. iteas cute listening to Avi admonishing whomever did it. He has been to the range, he knows what you are supposed to do with spent brass.
But it was a nice break, fun in the sun, 30 minutes before frolicking in the snow….
