This photo is not the best, but look closely and you can see a mama turkey and her poults. There must have been a dozen little ones!

Mochi loves off-roading!

I don’t know what these are called but they sure are pretty.

The cabin at Lee Butte Lookout is locked, but it’s still fun to look through the windows!

The lookout tower on Lee Butte is in the Historic Registry - it’s one of only three such towers built in Arizona.

We always called these Indian Paintbrush.

The road near the bottom of this map highlighted in orange is our route on FR 127. This is from the National Geographic map of Flagstaff and Sedona.

The well by the Lee Butte cabin still has water in it. And lots of flying insects!

Little Daisy Tank. It’s so nice to get out and walk around where it’s cool and smells like pine trees!
