The start of November was spent with our good friends, the Taylors, in Albany, Oregon. After a heartfelt goodby, we booked it through California to get back ‘home’ to Gilbert, Arizona… mainly for work. Its not fun to be back in AZ. Our alergies always hit us hard but at least we got to spend time at Lost Dutchman State Park, one of our favorite State Parks thus far!
