We're in Arizona

After four days of driving--with overnight stops at Lathrop State Park in Walsenburg, CO, Isleta Lakes RV near Albuquerque, and Dream Catcher RV in Deming, NM, we reached Mission View RV in Tucson today. We will stay for a least a week. Two years ago in the fall we spent a few days here. We love the extra-wide sites and the friendly people.

Would you believe, after waking up to 26 degrees this morning, the high today in Tucson was 84? There are storms coming in with some rain, so it will cool down. But not like we have experienced in the last few nights. We won't have to disconnect the hose to keep it from freezing. Our weather while packing, moving and driving has been great--no snow or rain. But we have been looking forward to warm weather. We put on our shorts as soon as we arrived in Tucson.

This is a shot of tonight's sunset from our RV park. At the house we just moved out of, it was difficult to see a morning sunrise. And, since we spent most of our time in the family room on the east side of the house, we almost never saw sunsets. Our patio home didn't have many windows or good views--in part to provide privacy on our small lot. One of the things we enjoy in our house on wheels is the number of windows and the good views of outside.

  1. nHey, remember us? We met you last spring in Oregon! You are very near us now. We are volunteering at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, about 2 1/2 - 3 hours from Tucson. Have you been here? Now that you are full timing, you might want to come down for a visit.

    The weather is great!

    Warm regards,
