Gates Pass & the Honey Girl
The day started unusually for me with a stop at a QT or Quick Trip gas/market for a glazed doughnut. For some reason it felt like the right thing to do but I ate only half of it, honest. Then I jumped on my bike around 10:00am when the temp rose above 60 degrees and....
....headed southwest and up to the top of Gates Pass.
It is an enjoyable descent, heading towards the Catalinas but.....
....upon reaching Silverbell Road, I spotted these two ladies selling "Sonoran Desert Honey" as the "Honey Girls". I stopped to talk for a while and now know everything there is to know about selling honey without a permit on county owned land which the local police ignore cause they like the Honey Girls.
During my 61 mile ride I ventured into the Saddlebrook retirement community. Great views from many of the homes. Dang, I love the mountains.

A sample was not offered and since I did not have the means of transporting a jar, I did not request a taste. They are there each Saturday so maybe I will drive and buy. She said business is brisk.
