Well. . . . it will take another 3 hours by car
to Tucson at the gas station in Safford, AZ..

I greeted a funky guy looked like working at a copper 
mine and he filled up the gas into the tank of his vehicle 
for the next day.

We were stunned to look up the sky that turned
crimson red at the SUNDOWN.

Breathtaking and peaceful moment. . . . . . .Let's hit the road!
