Arizona Sketches

First the sketches for Scavenger Hunt 466

I sketched at the dentists and then in Silver City and then in Sierra Vista, Arizona.  I used the Micron 03 and added some watercolor to the pears.

Number 4, man made - chairs at dentists,  Number 5 spoon ( I posted these previously, but they were on the page and I'm not changing the photo.  Ha.
Number 6, something you eat with bread - my favorite in hotel, Sierra Vista
Number 7, from the bathroom basin - hair dryer in hotel
Number 8, something on the dining table - some red pears in a glass dish
We came to Sierra Vista to see Roger and other family members.  Such a beautiful drive.  This year everything is green which is pretty unusual this late.

Leaving Silver City, New Mexico.

Looking toward Deming, New Mexico

The clouds were thinning out and were very strange.

 Entering Arizona.

The beginning of big rocks and one of the many trains on the way.

We all went to the Kartchner Caverns near Benson yesterday, beautiful to see.  They take very good care of them.  No photos, food, flashlights and more restricted from entry.  Gene had a back ache so he rode a wheelchair.  With no practice it was almost a run away chair.  Virginia said we should rent a chair and take Gene someplace for our entertainment today!

 Carne adovada, pork in red chile.
Flour tortillas, roasted jalepeños, and roasted green chile.

Just some of the food we are having at Roger's.  Add menudo, tamale pie, beans, fried potatoes, sausage, bacon, corn tortillas, brisket, corn on the cob roasted with potatoes.  Home made with love by Roger.  Can't beat it!

Bag Blog (Anonymous). Wouldn't that be fun? You would enjoy being around Roger! He is too good of a cook so we can't stay too long.

Jennifer Rose, Roger's chile is very spicy, he toned it down for some of us. Our son, Larry, describes it as intense. :-)
