Gale and Leon

My sister and brother-in-law, Gale and Leon, arrived last Wednesday for a visit. Julie and I took vacation Thursday to add to our usual Friday day off.

Thursday morning gave us a light snow that couldn't withstand the morning sun. We drove to the top of South Sheba cinder hill and briefly endured 50 MPH winds then drove to Grand Falls on the Little Colorado River about 10 miles northeast of home.
