1st trip up to our little cabin this year. (April 20140)

Monday, April 14, 2014

On our way up, we decided to stop at this Nat`l Monument.....Montezuma Castle

Montezuma Castle National Monument quickly became a destination for America's first car-bound tourists. In 1933, a 45-50 room, pueblo ruin was excavated, uncovering a wealth of artifacts and greatly enhanced our understanding of the Sinagua people who inhabited this riparian "oasis" along Beaver Creek for over 400 years.

The fee to get in was only $5 each but David has an access card that allows him to get up to 4 people in "free" into any Nat`l Park. I was surprised that this also included Nat`l Monuments. That saved us $15

This is not the best picture of our "little hide away" but it is most recent. We are so blessed to have a place to go and relax. It has no electricity nor running water but has all the other comforts. We have had and will still have many wonderful memories up there with family

I try to get as many pictures as I can of me and my husband while I still can.

Here we are eating lunch at our favorite restaurant, Pine Country. I call it "Pie Country" as it has the best pies. We usually get a slice while in town on each trip but this day, I chose to have a treat at Dairy Queen instead. I know the pie will be waiting for me on my next trip.

A nice lady in the next booth asked us if we wanted a picture of all 3 of us. I jumped at the offer. This is my 12 year old grson who got to go up with us. He is such a blessing and such a sweet boy (proud grandma) we are planning on many trips up this coming summer with him and his older brother. They always thank us for having the cabin. They have such wonderful memories. The cabin placed on 2 acres of land will stay in the questions about that. We are happy the family wants it that way.

Here is a blog that I wrote last year. It will give you a good idea of our little cabin. There have been a few changes since then and I will blog more another time.

    I love the pictures. My grandparents had a cabin at Lake Whitney and I got to go there until it was sold (after their deaths), when I was 13. I loved that place so much and it was partly because of the memories of my grandparents there.
