Today was a nice drive from Yuma to Tucson. Great weather - not too hot but nice & sunny. We're so interested to see agriculture & huge dairies all thru the desert. And the desert changed a lot - from not much vegetation in Yuma to lots of vegetation & green the closer we got to Tucson.

We're staying in Justin's Diamond J RV Park about 11 miles SW of Tucson. We're out in the desert where it's quiet. Their online list of amenities includes free coyote calls most nights. Ha! The rv sites are big & we're backed up to the desert - 40,000 acres of public land.

We're only here for 6 nites/5 days so we'll be pretty busy while we're here. Think we're hitting the gem & mineral show tomorrow. That may not sound like much but this is a HUGE gem & mineral show - 40 locations around Tucson!

More later...
