THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

FOREVER “YOUNG”

102_6388    102_6401
On Friday we decided to take some time out to celebrate my visit to the doctor, and take a little day trip to visit the “Tonto National Monument Cliff Dwellings“, just north of Globe, as we had been wanting to see this for a while, and now,. The weather was right, and the time was right, This would be a good time, before our many northern visitors make their way down in their annual migration south. As we passed the Roosevelt lake area , it is just gorgeous,. This is a lake about a  mile  and a half wide, and around 20 miles long, a boater’s dream.

Well, to say the least, we got sidetracked. As we drove by the church in Tonto Basin, we were surprised to find our friends, and church Pastor Robert Melotti there, as well as his wife Stephanie. We just had to stop. We had a great visit and fellowship, even though it was far too short.

Pastor Robert showed us around, at the work the Lord is doing in that area. We serve a Great Lord! We also were blessed to meet Linda, the superintendent of schools for the town of Young, AZ, she challenged us with the suggestion that we visit her town, if we were looking for “adventure”.  We took her up on her challenge.

So, at this point we were committed to the challenge for adventure, and, now Kathy pointed to this little spot on the map, she plugged in our GPS, which didn’t work very well. We headed out to find Young. Young is a town located on Rte. 288, between Payson and Globe.

Here we go! We decided to head in from the north, off AZ  highway 260, that was fine, About 3 miles after we turned onto  AZ 288, the road became a dirt road. Around 40-45 miles, and some of the most beautiful country we’ve ever seen, later, we arrived in the town of Young.

About one  mile before getting into town, the road became a street, and it was nicely paved.

As we traveled through the town, it  seemed to be a pretty nice place, it looked nice, with a nice school, a small LDS church,  a few stores and a cafe, where we stopped for coffee and some blackberry pie, Yum!

THE POST OFFICE “                                            “THE GENERAL STORE”

Now, it was time to leave. We headed south out of town on the same road we came in on. Just about three miles out, the road became dirt again. We continued on for 62 miles, to AZ 188, which is a nice highway, and on to Globe, and home.

WE MADE IT! NONE THE WORSE FOR THE WEAR. AND IT WAS A VERY ADVENTUROUS DAY! We look forward to MANY MORE, Lord Willing,

  1. Great adventure. Young must be named for Brigham – I like it as a town/school name no matter what.

    We finally had two days of rain – about 2.5 inches – but it’s still a drought here.
