In Guad We Trust (#325)

The several days since Christmas have taken me out of Texas where, near El Paso, a parting sign said, Reduced Speed Ahead – 75 – !  That was down from 80.  It made me laugh to think of that as reduced speed.

In Deming, New Mexico I found the St. Clair Winery which has a cozy little tasting room, some very knowledgeable people on staff and wonderful wine.   The Summer Peach and Chocolate D’Vine are very good wine choices.

Along Arizona 85 south I passed through the Chiricahua Mountains where in 1886 the great Apache chief Geronimo surrendered his freedom to the US Army.

From there I made a detour to Bisbee, Arizona to buy some wonderful Wild Yeast Sourdough bread from the Guadalupe Baking Company.   The company’s motto is “In Guad We Trust”  which honors Our Lady of Guadalupe.  The bread, baked daily by owner/baker Juliette is wondrous and truly worth the trip.

The next day I was at El Dorado Hot Springs in Tonopah, Arizona for an overnight stay and a natural hot springs soak.  Then on to Quartzsite, Arizona to visit with dear friends from my past winters there.

Following are some images taken from my travels.

    Hey, Annie. Two years ago I didn’t think we would ever wax nostalgic about Quartzsite but right now we wish we were there with you. Would like to run a load of laundry and eat breakfast while it was in the dryer. Even the big tent sounds like fun. Wonder if the book seller is wearing clothes. If you run into Richard tell him “hello” from both of us. Safe travels and Happy New Year to you and yours!

    The winery sounds like a good place to go. I have been to Quartzsite. There isn’t much there.
