|Up this morning and ready to go! The plan today is to drive to Phoenix which is a 2 1/2 hr trip down I17. Leaving a little late, no time for breakfast, we stopped at Denny’s for lunch. Back in the car traveling S on I17 as we approached Phoenix we took exit 222 looking for The Sonoran Desert to take a hike. At Apache Wash Trailhead we decided on The Sidewinder Trail. Checking the temperature posted it said 101 degrees so decided to take only a 20 min hike up and 20 min back taking a lot of cactus and desert photos. We loaded up on water before taking this hike!!! Back to I17 S another quick stop at a food mart for drinks, headed to rental car drop off, then to the hotel. Ate dinner at the hotel across from ours. I had a glass of wine, Susan and I shared a quesadilla that was wonderful! Julie had chicken strips. Another Great Day!!
