This Wasn't No "Stay-cation" Vacation Day 8

Day 8
Opened the door to the room this morning to the smell of fire. We were told by a local that the smoke would be in Sedona in the AM. 
It was. 
Cough cough.
We leave with cloud cover.
I am not sure if it's from fires or actual clouds.
As we make our way through more mountain areas we get a little mist. 
Nothing bad but nice and refreshing ride.
Tonto National Forest  plus a few others. 
I am always amazed at all the National Forest areas.
























We stop in Pine for a potty break. 
Love all these quaint towns. 
The clouds are sticking with us so I add an extra layer to my light weight hoody. 
Don't think a person  could ask for better riding weather. 
Drops into the low 60's in high elevations and a nice 75 elsewhere.
Rain is following us. 















Lunch in show low at the Sweethhart Cafe.
The food was vey good and the little cafe was a nice treat.  






















We hit rain around Alpine. 
It was heavy enough for is to put on those dreaded rain suits.



















Our next stop we felt sure it was safe to get out of them. 
Alma is just a one business town and that is where we got rid of the suits.




Cactus were blooming at the motel we stopped at.  






 Final stop for the night is Silver City. 
The motel is on the outskirts of town and there was only a Wendy's to eat at.   
It was fine with all of us.
Back in the room in time to see The Thunder lose their game. ;(
