Tues. Feb. 16, 2010 - South Mountain

This was such an eye opener for Keith and me... At the top of South Mountain there's a compass which makes it very easy to see the WHOLE area..from Tempe, Phoenix, Sun City, and all the mountains... We spent lots of time talking with Barb and Bob and pointing out every land mark.

The sun was shining but the wind was blowing! Dobbins Lookout is at 2330 ft. elevation.
This is Camel Back mountain.

I told ya the wind was blowing:)

I took this shot straight down from the top of the lookout...this building is "Mystery Castle" ..and a golf course behind that.

Just more awesome views.

Bob and I walking out of an area that the "Hohokam" tribe drew/scratched geometric designs on rocks.

This is "The Farm at South Mountain".... We had lunch here...everything is grown and served fresh. Barb and I had salads that were scrumptious... Keith and Bob ordered the turkey wraps.. AND for dessert, Bob picked up a peach tart. We sat out in the garden groves listening to the birds enjoying the doesn't get any better than this! I have to pinch myself to realize this is all happening to us. What a dream come true.

After we ate we strolled thru the many fields of fresh produce. It smelled so good and looked so pretty.

Later that night, Keith made a spagetti dinner for the 4 of us. Here he is working away in Barb's kitchen. It was a nice laid back evening. We just had a wonderful time with Bob and Barb, getting to know them so much better...
