We got there on Friday afternoon, and settled into our new digs. It was a quirky old house with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. It had a pool table, a hot tub, and a nice outside deck. We were set. There was much drinking and eating over the next 72 hours. There was a propane grill so we had steaks, burgers, and chicken. There was no set agenda except to chill and socialize. On Saturday some of us walked to a local lake while others checked out an old historic cemetery. On Sunday I suggested finding and old steel dam which was unique in all of the world. Not too far away on the same creek (arroyo) was another dam made out of stone. So we checked them both out. It was a nice afternoon in the woods. I had also wanted to show folks an old railroad tunnel that I had visited decades ago, but the walk in was a little too much for us who were ill-prepared with little water and no sunscreen. On Monday we set a leisurely pace and headed back to our respective homes. It was the perfect way to put all of the Covid shit behind us for just a little while and enjoy the company of friends. And now...pics!

Steel Dam only about 0.5 miles downstream of the Stone Arch Dam, but a pain in the ass to get to.
