When he came in at 2 am I had another little bomb to drop on him . His 88 year old Mother had been admittied to the hospital where she lived and it looked like she wouldn't make it though the night ..... Well again , she lived through the night so DH booked a flight down to see her and our relaxing was put on hold indefinitely ! DH was away for 5 days and Mother pulled through to the amazement of the doctors ..... She is now home and every day seems to be getting stronger ! The Old Gal is going to outlive ALL of us as she has a very strong will and is just not ready to go ! I keep telling DH that she will live until she sees 100 as her oldest sister was a week shy of 101 and her next sister will be 97 this year ! There is NO WAY the baby of the family will hit the Pearly Gates before them ! LOL !
DH arrived home at 4 pm on the Tuesday and by 6 pm we were in our RV ! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr , between the cool weather and the rain it was a miserable for a few days . Fortunately , the rain let up during the day and we got to enjoy sitting outside ..... and feeding the mosquitos ! They LOVE me ! We had our OFF lanterns going almost the whole time we were outside and they work awesome !!!! We did get to see some beautiful lightening storms go through and had some thunder to liven up things ! Good thing our mountains are still buried in snowpack !
Last evening we took the campground owner up to the HIXON FALLS to see the Spring runoff . Last summer when we were up there the falls were just a trickle and now this is what they look like
In the early 1900's this area was rich in it's gold deposits so I can well imagine the couple that works this claim this year ( they actually own the mineral rights for this area and legally you can not pan or dig for gold here without their permission or knowledge ! ) could find some real GOLD treasures ! The view was amazing , the ground slippery with moisture and the power under that waterfall was mindboggling !
We are home until Friday evening then will head back to the RV to feed the mosquitoes again ! hope we see some warmer , dry weather !!!
Have a great week everybody !
