The Wertz Gourd Farm Festival was at the county fairgrounds in Casa Grande. The American Indian Performance was excellent and the Gourd Art Competition was gorgeous.
We drove around the county, went to the New Mexico University Farm Tour, visited the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument and the Painted Rock Petroglyph Site and BLM Campground.
January 19 we headed back to the Temperate Zone in Deming. The day started out gloomy and then the beautiful sun came back
