«And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go.»
We stayed at Wild Cow Campground last night. Getting to the campsite was by far the most we have ever asked of Dorris. I wish there had of been a way to document how bad the road there was… but I’ll just try to explain. Basically, imagine a really narrow dirt road with the worst pot holes in the world. Then make it go up one side of a really steep mountain and then back down the other. Add 100 foot drop offs, throw in some really sharp turns, and that’s it. It took us almost an hour to drive four miles; Dorris is such a trooper. I am so happy that we pushed onward because it was one of the best nights of the trip. We made a hearty campfire, cooked dinner, and just relaxed. We made some coffee in the morning and the way back down only took us 30 minutes! Even with the incredibly ridiculous journey there, we both highly recommend you stay at this campground if you are ever in Arizona. It is well worth it.
