Lost Dutchman State Park
What a difference a couple of days make. The first half of our week here was cool, but sunny. A few days later the temps dipped, the wind picked up and the snow started to fall.
The clouds completely covered the mountains and it continued to snow through the next day.
What to do when the weather turns bad? Gather up our nearby RV friends for dinner!
Curt & Glenda and Guy & Sue had been in Gold Canyon already and Dale and Ruth had arrived just a couple of days before we headed out, so we all decided to go out for pizza. Well, with the cold weather, everyone else had that idea too. Rosita's was packed so Curt suggested we go to Los Gringos Locos. Since it was National Margarita Day we thought that was a perfect choice. We all had a great time. We were having so much we were asked to keep it down. Nice to see you all before we head out.
The weather was nice on our last day, Sunday, so Steve was able to make it out for a hike. Curt chose Massacre Falls Trail off First Water area. Many trails go off in different directions from here.

Thatsa bigga meata balla!
Loved these pillars at the top of the ridge.
One more view of The Four Peaks in the distance.
Put 'em up or I'll blow your head off! Oops, too late.
Anyone drop a pacifier?
It was a great 5+ mile hike and we decided to head out for dinner, then came back to our place to play cards. Great time with you Curt and Glenda. We'll see you later in the year we hope!
Our oldest son, Ryan, and his Fiancé, Diana, were in Phoenix for a couple of days for a wedding and it just happened to be while we were in Apache Junction so we drove up to Surprise to join them and Steve's Step-Mom for lunch before they had to fly out. They will be getting married in August of this year. Our first wedding!
Ryan, Steve, Bunny, Diana and Me.
Poppies, Poppies everywhere!
It was a nice to see them again. On our drive back to Apache Junction it was very strange to come upon this interchange to I-10 and not have another car in site.
And one more surprise...
Our third son, Brennan asked his girlfriend, Alex to marry him while they were down in the Philippines visiting her family.
She said YES! They are planning to get married in 2020. That's 2 out of 4 kids so far :-)
Congratulations Brennan and Alex!!
We are very excited!
We hate to say goodbye to the Superstitions. It went way too fast.
