We rolled into Payson two hours after leaving the house. It was about 30° cooler. We rolled down all the windows. Man, that felt great.
The plan: Check into the hotel, grab a quick bite, and hit the hay. We were getting up at 1AM to drive up to the spot and watch the Perseid meteor shower.
It was so nice out, we walked to the steakhouse up the block, where we had a nice, quiet dinner on the patio.
Make that 2AM.
