Christopher Creek Lodge

On the last day of our Route 66 trip, Sharon and I stayed at the Christopher Creek Lodge in Christopher Creek which is about 20 minutes from Payson, AZ. We wanted the coolness of the forest and look for Bigfoot which has been seen in the area. We like the idea of the Creekside Steakhouse and Tavern being nearby so we can get dinner there. We stayed in the lodge in room #2. It was an interesting room. It had a loft with two twin beds and the stairs were like climbing a ladder. On the main level was a queen bed, table and bathroom. It felt rustic, but comfortable. I think the next time, we will give one of the several cabins a try. Much more room to stretch out. BTW, we didn't find Bigfoot, just a wood statue of him.

Ghost Cocktail

Ghost cocktail:  2 parts vodka, 1 part heavy cream, 1 part vanilla simple syrup - shake with ice and strain. Add 2 parts club soda. Take marshmallows and mix green, red and blue food coloring and dip a toothpick into it and make faces on the marshmallows and float.  (Sharon used mini marshmallows and flattened them with her thumb)
