Summerhaven or Winterhaven

If you have to do a road walk this is the one to do. It's called the Sky Island Hwy and is beautiful.... Hoodoos, waterfalls, icicles and lots of snow. But 16 miles on asphault is still a long way and hard on the feet. We were both ready to stop when we got to Summerhaven around 3pm.

The town is really little. The Post Office was closed. The Realty office was closed. Then I saw a guy walking into the realty office and asked if he was the realtor. He was. I asked if there was a hotel. He said no, not even a bed and breakfast. It all burned in the fire of 2003 and hadn't been rebuilt. He said a woman named Dorothy could maybe help us. As he was looking for her number Jellybean came back from the post office. She got them to open a window and she had Dorothy's number. I called her and explained our situation. As soon as she heard that we walked there she said we could stay in one of her cabins. Her husband Wally even came down to the post office to get us. It's a cute little cabin with 2 bedrooms for 0.... It has heat, hot water and beds and is out of the elements. We are happy!

We walked over to the General Store but it's closed on Wednesdays. Then we stopped at the Pizza place... No beer but great pizza. Later we will figure out what our next step will be.

Love,

Nancy
