November 2003: <11/21 - 11/23: Again, we had a strong desire to "get away" for the weekend. The weather has cooled off around Phoenix, so we headed to our favorite desert boondocking spot. This spot is is only about 50 miles from home, yet in an isolated area. We spent the weekend just relaxing, taking walks, playing cards and reading. We also enjoyed a nice scenic drive through the desert, but...
