Easter Sunday

I went on a snowmobile ride, I mean a motorcycle ride, on Easter Sunday with two friends, Shawn and Phil. We rode north on I-17 to Camp Verde where we then took Hwy 260 east up into the mountains. We then took a little detour on Hwy 87 northeast to Long Valley where we stopped at the Long Valley Cafe for a scrumptious breakfast of Easter Blue Berry Bunny Pancakes with eggs and bacon prepared by Phil the cook and served by Harley the waitress. While waiting for our meals we enjoyed the fire burning in the wood stove as we were all suffering from frozen toes and fingers. We had passed an elevation sign that told us we were at 7500' above sea level. The previous day the area saw quite a bit of snow, and most of it was still on the ground the next day. After breakfast we back tracked a little, south to Pine, Strawberry and then on to Payson. The original plan was to take Hwy 188 down to Roosevelt Lake, then to Globe, then Superior before returning to the east Phoenix Valley. But instead we opted to take Hwy 87 back to the Valley, cutting about 100 miles off our ride. Murphy and Annie were glad to see me home early.

Love the pancakes though. And the waitress' name was Harley? Now that's a coincidence.

Yea, the kids really look worried about you - did you have to wake them up?

That sounds like quite a ride. Some people will go anywhere for Blueberry Bunny Pancakes.
