Photos from the road trip
Sign in Globe across from the library. Maybe they should have checked out the grammar and writing composition book before proofing their sign
Library in Globe. We didn't go in, maybe next time. I bet it's small, but mighty. :) I'm not poking fun, I'm glad they have one. Libraries = teh awesome
Pretty flowers (April knows the name) and a cactus. This was in front of the Tom Mix monument. He was a movie actor back in the day and had a few too many and died there. Or around there. There is a grill available for picnics as well.
The World's Biggest Tire! Ok, probably not, I haven't called my dad yet to see how much a tire of that size would cost, but I can imagine it is in the thousands. This is at an active ASARCO mine. The pictures I have of the land do not do the colors there justice so I shan't post them.
This tree smelled of old bacon grease. It was weird. It was also covered in bees. That made me laugh, because it reminded me of Eddie Izzard. :)
All that is left of the town of Christmas, AZ. An abandoned mine. The town was overrun by cattle, well, after they sold the land to some guy who let it get overrun by cattle. At least that's what we heard at the Pickle Barrel in Globe.
I had a great time. Ate junk food, sang to Dr. Hook, drove a Toyota (and it didn't run away!), chatted with some ladies at a rest area who led us to the ASARCO mine. It was the ultimate in road trips, no plans. Just a general idea of where to go. Good tunes, good friends, good food, good times. Needed that.
