Wow! My hat is officially off to the children of Howard and Ethel (Kathleen gets a shout out too). Driving down from Phoenix we were treated to this stunning scenery.

Once we arrived in the thriving metropolis we noticed a few choice businesses. I didn't get a picture of "steaks and cakes" but I did capture this gem.

From here we drove down to Cibola. Here are a few pics

The River

The Brothers (Jeff, H.B., Cliff, Larry) We missed you Candy!The Bishop's Place. No rats were shot while we were there and I wasn't offered any "Burro Jerky" but it was still a wonderful time.

At the site of the crash. It was a very solemn and amazing experience. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to have been here and see this for myself first hand. It was good to hear the brothers first hand recollections of this very sad event that changed so many lives in it's wake.

I am so glad you came to AZ! I loved seeing everyone. Maybe if we do this more often we won't have to stay up until 1:30 to catch up... second thought, we'd still stay up late!

Lin, thanks for the trip. I am glad we both made it. I posted some video at the ASS site.
