Mar 23, 2018 - Discovery! Ragged Top Peak.

As we sit outside of our RV at Jeff’s, I have been looking at this particularly ragged peak that is just west and north of us. Especially beautiful at sunset! Well I began researching it on line and find out it is called (oddly enough) Ragged Top Peak!! Who would have thought??!! Also, I discovered it is in a little known national monument called Ironwood Forest National Monument. Well, yesterday Emily and I decided to strike out and investigate this area that is at our front door. It turned out to be a few hours to finally find the right...

One Day @ a Time

Jan 31, 2018 - Peaceful Easy Feeling

January 31, 2018 Picacho Peak State Park, Arizona “I’d like to sleep with you in the desert tonight.....with a million stars all around.” That was the song running through my head early this morning as I sat outside in the dark. To my right was the jagged outline of Picacho Peak framed by a million stars, and straight ahead was the “blood moon” of the lunar eclipse. Just before the last crescent of silver moon turned dark a shooting star zipped close to the horizon. That was icing on the cake and a big “Oh!” flew out of my mouth. Luckily I...

Jan 16, 2015 - Visit with Friends

January 6 With Rex in tow, we left El Paso and headed west. The plan was to stay at a Passport America park in Bowie, AZ, which is just about 25 miles west of the AZ/NM border. January 7 With only 135 miles to go, we had a short drive to Marana, AZ, on the north side of Tucson. We parked in the side yard of good Rotary RV friends. Geary is one of those men who can do almost anything. Besides wanting to visit with them, we needed his help on a couple of things. When we arrived in Marana, the temperature was 77° and Clark looked forward to...

May 27, 2011 - OTRA - AZ- Marana

Again, we tried to get off earlier (9:25 a.m.) than our normal time so we wouldn't be driving too long in the heat. Another easy drive...I-10 east then AZ-85 south to Gila Bend then I-8 east to meet up with I-10 again. This way we were able to avoid all the traffic in Phoenix. We passed a large cattle feed lot on the road between the campground and I-10 and then further along I-10, we passed an ostrich farm. There must have been over a hundred ostrichs there. AND, we've got Nellie all figured out (or is it she who has trained us?) If we...

Nov 14, 2008 - Valley of the Sun RV Park, Marana, AZ

Our 1st stop after we left Little Flag Ranch, is a quiet 55+ mobile home/RV park in Marana, AZ (just outside of Tucson). Trip down was uneventful, except for an ABS lite on the dash. It didn't hamper the driving, but was just a nuisance. We pulled into Valley of the Sun at about 3 pm & was able to get a spot right next to one of our fellow RVers we met in Knoxville, TN (The Happy Hobos-Carl, Nadine & Cookie). We also got the P.A. rate, which was 1/2 price, a bargain at $14/nite, but the taxes were a shocker. The sites were nice and level,...

Oct 29, 2007 - Marana, AZ

This morning we started out from Las Cruces, NM. Everything looked very southwestern. The architecture of buildings, and ever present shrub brush and dirt says southwest to me. We stayed at the Siesta RV Park. It was like most we have seen driving through western Texas and New Mexico. In my opinion, more like a parking lot than and RV park. The lady that checked us in was friendly and helpful we did run into a man from Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. He had a truck camper with a slide out. Everything has slide-outs now. In the morning with Andy...
