While we enjoy wandering around the southwest, we often find ourselves with conversations about could we really live like this.  Kind of silly really as the ancesteral  people knew nothing of our life and it’s conveniences.  For them it was about just living with water, food and shelter the only necessities.

The walk up to the ruins at Tonto National Monument is about  mile, and while I had a paved trail, a water bottle, and a camera, I wondered  if this same trail hauled food and water for families living here.    Humbling, and then again, they may seem like the underdog, but…


I am pretty sure they must have known about  the value of the real estate they were sitting on.


Be grateful….and be present in every moment.
