Our son's girlfriend's parents came to visit AZ from Michigan this past week. They left cold and wanted warm sunny AZ weather. After a few nice days they headed up north to see the Grand Canyon and what they saw they almost could not believe, they got caught driving up north in Snow so much snow in fact they got stranded over night in Flagstaff, they were driving in White Out conditions!!! They called their son back home in Michigan and the weather was nicer back there then where they were here!!!If they had not experienced it they probably never would have believed how much SNOW Arizona really gets each year, quite possible more then Michigan gets!!!!This has been a very wet; rain and snow winter for Arizona!!!!We met them for dinner one night so they could meet the family, my daughters and I have met them before, last year at Jesse's College graduation, but my husband and son-in-law had not met them. It was nice to talk and get to know them better, but they came and spent the night at our house and when you are sitting around your home talking for hours and then waking up and talking around the breakfast table you really connect and become more then just friends you become a surrogate family in a way!!! SO as my title states friends are relatives you can make!!!
Having lunch out on the Patio at the Mammoth Saloon!!! No beer for us at the saloon, just some cold drinks and yummy burgers!!!!
Listening to the live entertainment!!!
On the dusty main street!!!!
Riding on the only Narrow Gauge Railroad in AZ!!! The track is only 36 inches wide where as most train tracks are 56 inches!!!This tour gives you a little piece of history on the town of GOLDFIELD now known as a Ghost Town!!!At one time this was a bustling gold mine town!!
The Elevator tower that takes the elevators down to the bottom
One of the elevators some of the miners rode in to get to the bottom of the mine.
An old entrance to one of the many gold mines out here in this area.
