Footings Done
05 November 2004.
We finished up the twelve footings for the porch this weekend.
After cleaning up the holes that had washed in from the recent rains (5 inches in a couple of weeks), Randy chopped, cut and drilled out the roots that had been in the way on three of the holes. We then dug the holes a little deeper, as the rock would allow, and widened the bottom 6 inches out to a 16 inch diameter with a trenching shovel.

November 2004 at the Ranch

by on Nov.06, 2004, under Seasons


Fall in Arizona
With low temperatures in the 30s and 40s, November is still a very comfortable time to visit the Ranch. The highs still reach up into the 60s most of the time, with 70 degrees not uncommon…

Seasons Change
November 6th, 2004.
But seasons do change in the high country. This morning it started raining at about 4:30. As soon as it got light out, we packed up our stuff and ran back to Mesa, before Markham Pass got too muddy to travel in our little Nissan pickup.

Here, looking East at Black Mountain on the way out, you can see how low the clouds were hanging.
This has been a great Fall season for rain this year. We have received over 5 inches in the last three weeks.
