It's a relatively steep hike, but from the time we left Sherman to the time we were at the top was only 45 minutes. We took a different route coming back down.
It started on the side where there used to be an old gravel pit and they've got a big chunk of that side of the mountain dug out.
Bye Sherman...see you in a couple of hours!
Ruth at the old gravel pit at Pilot Knob.
Shorts and t-shirt weather! Not much sun though.
Ruth, heading uphill.
These military helicopters fly up and down the highway a few times every day. Not sure what they're doing but it could just be training because there's an airfield nearby.
Kevin, high above the LTVA (long term visitors area).
Getting near the top, you can see Los Algodones, Mexico.
Ruth, at the top!
Mountains off in the distance.
We took a different route back down. A little steep in places, and with some loose rocks. Just have to go slow.
We had received some emails over the past couple of days from fellow bloggers who wanted to meet with us. And we wanted to meet with them! So it all came together because they were all able to visit at the same time!
It's great having visitors because Sherman gets himself all cleaned up (with some help from us!), and we put out his nice new patio mat. We've been RV'ing now into our eighth year and we've never owned a proper RV camping mat!
And new chairs too! How spiffy is that? We love the Aztec looking design of our mat.
So after lunch, our visitors began showing up. Kevin and Evelyn from RV Khronicles of Kevelyn, Ray and Cindy from Ray and Cindy's RV Travels, and Janos and Maggie from Lenses and Wheels.
We had a great afternoon visiting with all of these folks. We knew them, and they knew us, but they didn't know each other. So now they do!
Ray and Cindy, Evelyn and Kevin, Janos and Maggie, and Ruth and Kevin.
