Mikes Birthday

We did not have high hopes for a good place to eat here in Willcox for Mikes birthday and Mike had decided to cook steaks so he could have his just the way he likes Thursday we did a little wine tasting here in Willcox in the afternoon on that cold, rainy day....and Janie at Carlson Winery told us about a Lawrence Dunham wine dinner at Sunglow Ranch.  She called for us and they had seats available so we made a reservation!  Talk about timeing!

We had to drive quite a ways but it was definitely worth it!  We started out the day driving to the Amerind Museum in Dragoon  which was great but they would not allow pics so I have nothing to share from there.  From the museum we drove to Sunglow Ranch, a B&B located 10 miles south of Chiricahua NM, in the middle of no where.  Lovely though!  We made some new friends, had good food and enjoyed the Lawrence Dunham wines served:

    When you went to Amerind you probably passed the Triangle T Guest Ranch...that's where we stayed when in that area.
