Getting off the main roads, you often see homes with acreage large enough to have old wagons sitting around.
Driving the back roads into the mountain take you past this beautiful waterfall in the desert.
Here's a country road that takes you to a slag pit, dirt that was taken out of the Lavendar Mine. Once a year this area is opened up to the public so that they can go digging for turquoise.
This area, on the other side of the mountain from us, is perfect winery country. I do love the big, open skies here.
This is another thing you might find on our country roads.
