One of my favorite things to do is to go on an eXcursion with the family and whoever else might happen to tag along!
Though we had never been to Dead Horse Ranch State Park before, we ended up there twice in a matter of a month. The first time, the kids and I went down for an event they were having there (Verde River Days or something like that) and met up with Geoff's mom. We went and checked out the Tuzigoot Indian ruins afterwards. The next time we all went and a student of Geoff's joined us for the day. This time we took up to Jerome afterwards and cruised around for a bit then. I think I forgot my camera that day. Very unusual.
