|Tower Mountain, Crown King, AZ|
After a wonderful night's sleep, and being utterly lazy and laying around watching "Knowing" starring the always entertaining Nicolas Cage, we decided to go in to town for some breakfast at the Prospector Mall Smokehouse & Grill (amazing bacon, by the way! They cure it themselves and it was to die for...). We were reminded by one of the owners of the Smokehouse that the Memorial Day Parade was going to begin at noon, and, no offense to Crown King, we wanted to high tail it out of town...so around 11 a.m. we decided to head up to Tower Mountain to check out the old lookout tower. So we started climbing out of Crown King - windows down - amazing views - shelf road most of the way. Lots of side by sides and ATV's zipping down the roads at top speed - I have no idea how these people avoid accidents. It was crazy.

Also - the clutch is still springy. Haha
|Homemade trommel at Del Pasco - and it still spins!|

I'm getting the hang of it - and then we're driving on shelf roads. Ugh.

I know. I'm shocked too. Only once did I freak Paul out. I'm always the one to get nervous on shelf roads, but apparently I got a bit close and Paul got a bit nervous.
So Paul --
