Barely enough light on the ground at 5:07 a.m., but out I went. I was on a mission: Last week I had found a grave just south of Thunderbird, but did not have my camera. Today, I made sure to bring it. Good thing, because it was a beautiful sunrise. :) Just before I got to Cave Creek Rd, a hummingbord landed on the branch a few feet in front of me. I could barely hear his cheep. I backed up a bit, so as not to scare him off, then got my camera out of my pocket. Then I heard a mountain bike coming down the trail. Argh! I barely got the camera focused before the bike got to me and scared off my little buddy. A half hour later, after a bit of exploring, I had re-found the grave. If you drive west on Thunderbird from Cave Creek, just past the first flag pole on the north side of the road, there is a light pole on the south side of the road. The grave is 25 yards south from there. (About here: http://hikearizona.com/map.php?QX=1971 .) When I discovered it the previous week, I thought to myself, "That pile of rocks looks like a grave. Naah, it can't be." But it is. Or at least is very much meant to look like one. Right next to it is an old foundation. So, who knows? :-k It was a nice morning, not too hot, but about 6:15 a.m. someone turned on the oven. Good thing I was almost home by then.
