ANOTHER ride to Miami, w/ EXTRAS!

Yesterday my buddy and I headed S for a fairly long ride, down AZ 79 to Oracle Junction, then NE on AZ 77 to Oracle, where there's an artist who makes "THINGS" from scrap, I SHOULD say makes "SCULPTURES" from scrap, and here's some pics of his 'yard'....



a Roman warrior...?



a monster...? (or several)





yard pets...?

He's also made a stage, so I assume they hold concerts sometimes.



All manner of 'eclectic' stuff too



including this bronze long-horn head.



And more 'robots'...









and more stuff

From there we rode thru Oracle State Park to the E









via Mammoth, Winkelman, then the top of Kearny Pass where we stopped for lunch (just under 5,000' ASL).

ANOTHER stop in the Miami "antiques street"...

There was not even one cloud anywhere, so we rode up AZ 77 to AZ 70, then joined AZ 60 at Globe, then W to the antique street in Miami (I had told Bill that IF HE wanted to stop there to just get my attention, and we'd stop......), but I saw that my FAVE antique store had their OPEN sign ON, so I stopped and waved Bill over. He was 'rolling' his eyes, but followed me in ANYWAY.

The place looks like a set for "American Pickers"...







Any of you remember "Elvira"? Here's a lamp featuring her.



Then MORE "American Pickers"...







There's an Indian motorcycle seat from a merry-go-round that's REALLY NEAT!



Chatting w/ the woman who runs the place, and she indicated that her store's ONLY open Fri, Sat and Sun which is why I hadn't been into it for awhile. THEN she mentioned that we shouldn't miss the next-door "soda jerk", so out the door (which had Pinochio)

a sode and a Medal of Honor recipient...!

The soda fountain was just as neat as the antique store. I ordered a sasparilla ice-cream float, Bill a coffee



then "hero-pics" in front of that antiques store





and when we finished we rode to the end of the street to read the Medal of Honor citation for a WW2 local soldier.





An INCREDIBLE series of acts of bravery! - - - -

We saddled-up, then continued W on 60, thru Superior, as well as the round-about way thru Queen Valley, crossed 60 and back onto AZ 79 S towards home.

GREAT way to spend 5 1/2 hours, adding 208 miles to our odometers!
