Monday, January 30 – San Diego to Yuma. Staying at the Westwind RV Golf Resort. Great big, fun place with a huge pool, tennis and golf. Had the RV washed and waxed by Roberts RV wash. Best prices and good work.
Wednesday, February 1 – Left Westwind in Yuma and arrived at Picacho Peak State Park space C19. Took a small hike (it was warm). Had a great campfire this night, and saw an amazing sky full of stars.
Thursday, February 2 – Left Picacho to Catalina State Park (in Tucson) space A39. The place we saw the enormous jack rabbits on our last stay here. This time didn’t see ANY until the day we left. Daily beautiful hikes. Lots of water flowing which we had to cross. All us hikers got inventive with rocks and walking sticks. Only got a little wet. 🙂
Met some wonderful people, Gil and Sandy with their English Spaniel, Angel. That girl was an amazing hiker that wore everyone out, even though Gil and Sandy are in great shape. They’re from near Racine, WI which we visited last year on our Indy trip. He’s a volunteer fireman in their little town out in the country. Hoping we meet up with them again as we’re all supposed to be at Lost Dutchman State Park at the foot of the Superstition Mountains around the same time.
Monday, February 13 – Left Catalina and arrived at Lost Dutchman State Park (Apache Junction, AZ), site #104, at the foot of the Superstition Mountains. Stunning views of the mountains, my phone pictures don’t do it justice. We hiked every day. Made it about 3/4 of the way up to Flatiron on the Siphon Draw Trail. Very steep and rocky.
Met up with Gil, Sandy, and Angel again and had a couple of nice evenings chatting with them. Poppins made a good friend in Sandy. 🙂
Friday, February 24, 2017 – Left Lost Dutchman State Park & the Superstitions this morning and landed at Distant Drums RV in Camp Verde, AZ. We were disappointed in our site location as this is the second time we’ve requested a specific area of the park that we prefer – and made our reservations well in advance – and they’ve given the site away prior to our arrival. The RV park is in a good location, close to Sedona, not QUITE as expensive as in Sedona proper.
