We drove up north to Payson, Az to visit and see my Uncle and Aunt's new cabin up there!!!They call the place Rooster Ridge, as up on the hill above their house is a tree in the perfect shape of a Rooster!!!!
The cabin!!!!It is so much cooler up here in the summer then down in the Valley of the sun!!!!
The kitchen with all of it's cute rooster decorations!!!
We had lunch at the Beeline Cafe!!!It was very good down home cooked food!!!
Off to visit the old homestead of a Scotsman who found the Natural bridge while hiding out from the Apache Indians. Then it was turned into a lodge. This building has been included in the National Register of historic places!!!
It is a very charming place and no wonder lots of weddings are held here!!!Please if you live in Az or are planning a trip here make sure you make a stop there, with Government budget cuts, this National Park is slated to close in Sept. How sad, that this beautiful place will not be viewed any longer. How about we cut out some of that Government waste and Pork Barrel spending and keep this National Park open?????
Uncle Vic and Aunt Jan and My sis and Brother in law at the Natural Bridge, it is a drop of 800 feet to the canyon floor, The Bridge is the largest natural bridge In the world. It is 180 feet high, 400 feet long and 100 feet thick of Travertine!!!!
The Natural Bridge, very impressive!!!The front side.
Looking down!!!you can hike to the bottom, see the people???
The Sis and Bro-in-law
The back side of the Natural Bridge, this is the side the water runs off of, when it has rained or snow run off it looks like a water fall!!!!
My sister and Brother-in-law!!!That creek sure looked inviting, but it was cold. The weather was about 90 degrees, much cooler then Phoenix!!!
This is one of my cousin's daughter's son, does this make sense!!!!
He turned 7 and his birthday party was at the bowling alley!!!!He is such a sweet little boy, after opening each gift, he found the parent and hugged and thanked them first then went to his friend to hug them!!!!
The cute birthday boy!!!!
