We spent a restful night at the Tonto Basin Inn. Nice clean place!
The day before, at the Cliff Dwellings, we had actually found a NEW rockhounding book. Here we test it out! This is dad chipping away at 4 to 6 million year old crinoid and shell fossils. The book was right on!
On the way to Phoenix to pick up Lela, we stopped at the Tonto Natural Bridge. It was very cool!
The rock is formed out of a mineral
conglomerate called Travertine.
It is created by water flowing,
almost like stalagtites.
Another attraction of the place is the herd of Javelinas that stay near the main building and feed on berries and grasses. They are not exactly pigs but they sure look like them.
