Friday we return to our Tombstone friends, the McMurtries. Last time we were here it snowed, and it looks like we've brought another winter storm on our heels this time as well.
Our plan was to leave Monday morning for Deming, NM, but it is more likely to be Wednesday now. Avoiding traveling in 35-60 mph winds, cold temps and possible snow - another thing we love about the flexibility of being nomads. Since Anna and Donnie seriously spoil us, this is a pretty sweet spot for a lay-over :-)
No sign of storms as we soak up the warm sunshine on the patio with our friends.

Located in the Dragoons, in the historic West Cochise Stronghold, this outcropping of light-colored rock is home to deer, javalina, mountain lions, and many birds, snakes and lizards.

There may be stormy weather coming, but this day is picture perfect.
