More travels around and about

Last week we took the sister missionaries, Sisters Brown/UT and Adair/AZ, on a little drive and here are some of the pictures. 
We found this river, which runs into the Pirquitas Dam, and walked across this foot bridge and enjoyed the cool water (dipped our feet in the water) and the cooler weather.

Another monument but what I really liked were the cactus plants all around it.

Legend has it that Gauchito (Cowboy) Gil was an outlaw but would rob from the rich and give to the poor - a 19th century Robin Hood.  He was hung for his wrong doings but prior to his hanging he pledged to become a miracle worker.  It's very common to see these memorials and red flags all over the country along roadsides.
