Montezuma's Well

On Wednesday we decided to visit Montezuma’s Well National Monument which just a few miles up the road from Camp Verde, not far from Montezuma’s Castle. It’s an interesting site, a natural well that was used by the ancient Indians for water. They actually dug irrigation canals in the stone to use the water from Montezuma's well for their crops. Some of the canals are still there. It’s a free site and worth a visit.

Thursday we went into town and bought the new Windows 7. Dave installed it on his pc that same day and I did mine yesterday morning. It takes about 3 - 4 hours to install but what little I’ve looked at I like…starting with the fact that it freed up some Gigabytes on my hard drive. Always nice to have a little more storage on my pc with all the photos and videos I collect from our travels. One of these days I need to go through all of them and clean some out, or maybe just get another back-up drive! :o)

Great photos! I especially like the 4th one down.
My hubby, Ron, and I met you two this morning, talking dogs! I look forward to checking back in to see where you've been!

It was fun meeting you two (or should I say four) this morning. Hope you're able to go fulltiming soon!
