Apr 20, 2018 - Patagonia Arizona

We only drove about an hour to move to Patagonia State Park. Patagonia Lake is a reservoir that is filled by the Sonoita Creek. It is very popular with boaters and well stocked with bass, catfish and trout. We did not go fishing here, but I sure did go bird watching! Another bird walk but this one had too many people and they did not break into smaller groups. The best part of this walk was the friends I made on it. Two women, Eleanor and Brooke were on a ten day bird trip. Eleanor from Alaska and Brooke from Montana. We just clicked. We...

Hi everyone, People have been asking why there have been no entries. I have found this is not a secure site,a advertised. If you want to follow us, my post would be on Facebook. Although, they are very limited. We feel guilty because of the winter most of you are having.

Jan 19, 2014 - Patagonia Lake State Park

One of the unfinished items on our checklist from last winter’s trip to this area, was a visit to Patagonia Lake State Park. We were invited by Carl and Sandy, who volunteer there as they did last year. They are full time RV’ers who noticed that we were in the area, because they listen to our podcast RV Navigator. The main feature of the park is the lake and taking a boat tour of the lake was a beautiful way to spend a warm day like today, but the date we made last year was cold and windy and we decided to cancel. Patagonia Lake is just a...

Apr 11, 2013 - Patagonia State Park

Patagonia State Park turned out to be a jewel. There are lots of willow trees in addition to the ever- present cactus and yucca, and even the ocotillo is covered with little green leaves which it usually only does after a rain. The lake is down somewhat, and there are cattails growing all around it. One of the funky things is a footbridge built to allow sailboats to go under it. Walking over it is something like climbing a small mountain, but it certainly gives you a great view of the surrounding countryside. Wednesday morning we went on a...

Dec 31, 2012 - Happy new year

Here is wishing everyone a Happy New Year!!! Be safe out there tonight. We are going to lunch (supper) with friends, and then going over to one of their houses for dessert. We awoke to some snow on the ground, and ALOT in the mountains. Now, sunny and warm. I love it.

Dec 19, 2012 - Merry Christmas

I was a naughty boy. I ate too late, and too much, so now I can't sleep. Besides, this time of year I always have a hard time sleeping. Thinking of the year past, and the events of it. So, I thought as long as I can connect to the internet ( which is rare here)I would use this time to say MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! I hope you all get what you want. I just want peace on earth, and an end to cancer. I keep praying. Our season will begin on Sat. when we go to a cookie exchange in the park. Christmas eve we will go to a friends church. There will be...

Dec 14, 2012 - Drive to Patagonia, Az.

It was a beautiful day on Tues., so we thought we would drive over and see what was happening in Patagonia. It is a little town west of here. We have fond memories of Dennis and Marilyn when we are there. The town itself hasn't changed much. It has many galleries, and shops. Property is VERY expensive. We got info on a 10'x10' building, sitting on a 50'x100' lot. A mere $245,000. It is a great area, but come on. We drove out to the state park too. When we were there with Dennis and Marilyn, it was full of campers. This trip, there were 2....

Apr 14, 2009 - Ghost Town Tour

Today we set off on a driving loop from Patagonia which took us on a beautiful scenic tour of the area to include several ghost towns from the late 1800’s. These were silver mining towns that had their short-lived heyday and then went poof. Most of them are now on private land so we didn’t get out and explore them, but JoAnn did get a bunch of really good pictures along the route. The route took us up through Coronado National Forest to about 6000 feet. It was really nice to see piney woods again and strange to see them this close to the...

Apr 13, 2009 - Patagonia State Park

Our first day in Patagonia was relatively quiet. We drove down town and went into the two stores we found there. They are mostly upper level marketing outlets for the local artists, jewelists, etc. There is some really nice stuff offered. Thank goodness we live in a trailer. We drove out to Patagonia State park to look around. There was plenty of trash left over from the big Easter Weekend. We drove through both the dry camping area and the hook up area. There wasn’t much to offer for us in the hookup area. We drove through this park last...

Living Our Dream

Apr 12, 2009 - Patagonia AZ

JoAnn was saddened to have to leave her desert today, but leave it we did. We had a leisurely pack up time and she visited all her friends (and her desert)to tell them goodbye. Our trip was only about 80 miles through some very beautiful country. JoAnn was snapping pictures out the window as we rode along and got some very nice shots. She also got some close ups of saguaros putting out their buds. It seems early as they don’t usually bloom until June, but then we’re already half way through April. What is happening to the days!! We are set...

Mar 30, 2009 - Sedona, Az

Quick note, we're in Sedona and it's a bit touristy but has unreal beauty. Lots of opportunity to camp in wilderness so that's what we are going to do. At least a 100 hikes in near viscinity and even better, lot's of internet cafe's. Spent last night in bush, Chris is a bit smelly, luckily I'm good.
