My social secretary, Lynnie, had a few places for us to visit today.  We went first to Montezuma's Castle, about 12 miles away.  Of course, Montezuma never traveled out of Mexico, probably since he didn't have a Green Card, but whoever named it apparently didn't know that.  It was inhabited by the Sinagua Tribe during the thirteenth century.  As with many ancient peoples, the disappeared without a trace.  One theory is that they joined up with the Hopi nation.  The photos will give you an idea of how it looks today.  It's a National Monument, so with the use of our "geezer pass" aka Golden Age Passport, we got in at no cost.  If you're over sixty, you can get one for a measly ten bucks.  Such a deal! Anyway, we continued, via use of the Droid Navigation App on the phone to Montezuma's Well.  It's fed from warm underground springs and maintains a temperature of 76˚ year round.  A large well it is, producing over a million gallons of water a day.  There are also remnants of dwellings on the walls there.  Back at camp, I've been busy editing photos and working on this.  I'm sorely tempted to catch a few ZZZZZs, but that would merely irritate some of you legitimate working folks, so I won't... mention it that is.  ;0)  It's mostly sunny today with a definite lack of "white stuff" on the ground.  A good thing... Lots to do here, so I'll break, upload some photos and continue, mebbe. Special thanks to my nephew, John for his suggestion to add more pictures.
