Go West: Day Six
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
This was Hubby's big day. He headed out early to hit the
San Juan River for his full day of fly fishing. Leta and
I hopped in my Ford Edge and set out to do some sightseeing. Our first stop was
the McDonald's in Aztec so I could check my email. Abe's Fly Shop and Motel was
pretty much a dead zone for cell service, and while they had wi-fi, my little
travel-sized Chromebook couldn't get a signal. But, hey, I was on vacation. We
also met up with Leta's son. He's a local police officer, and I think he wanted
to meet this weird friend of his mother's who would fly all the way from
to hang out. I also think I passed inspection because I'm not in jail. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
With Leta navigating, we headed into the Navajo Reservation and drove to Shiprock, a well known rock formation.
The scenery in the opposite direction was pretty cool, too.

I loved this little trading company, and plunked down some of my mad money for a turquoise necklace. Half price!
We drove to
lunch at Three Rivers Restaurant, and NOT the Three
Rivers we're familiar with in Pittsburgh. I can attest that
this New Mexican microbrewery serves top notch fish and chips, and excellent
We returned to Abe's to find Hubby crashed after a long day of fishing. From this photo, I'd have to say he had a good time.
Leta's son and his family joined us for dinner. I was too exhausted to eat. Playing is hard work! And I was beginning to think I would sleep for a week once we got home.
