Anniversary Adventure; Payson, Camp Verde, September 21, 2019 GPS Map

Jacque and I were married on September 21, 1974, so today is our 45th anniversary! We celebrated by going to the Gem and Mineral Show in Payson, then enjoying a fine lunch at Macky’s Grill. We drove home by way of Camp Verde.

The weather was ideal. What a great day to be together!
