Sep 9, 2018 - Show Low, AZ

/// Sunday - September 9, 2018 A Travel Day: I have to say that our stay at J&H RV Park was nice. I was impressed with the neatness of the sites, friendly residents and well maintained facilities. It is pricey though. $55. for a night stay. I guess the finishing touch was a Thank You note taped to our door this morning, thanking us for our stay. Today's trip will be a 140 mile haul, east to Show Low, AZ. We have visited the Show Low region previously when we stayed in Heber/Overgard. I suppose we really did not really appreciate all that...

May 24, 2018 - Show Low AZ – Woodfield RV Resort

First stop on our way of Arizona this Spring was Show Low. We wanted to get to a place where the temps weren’t in the triple digits like they were in Buckeye. We checked out lakes in the area in case Roger wanted to go fishing some Spring. The lakes aren’t very big and aren’t very deep, so I doubt fishing is very good after the Spring snow melt. The state stocks the ponds a few times during Spring and early summer. I’m not sure the fish would be that good beyond that. Anyway, we just missed watching the lake stocking at Show Low Lake. Some...

Feb 26, 2018 - Las Cruces, NM to Show Low, AZ

2-26-18 Las Cruces, NM to Show Low, AZ I was happy to get on the road again after a week in Las Cruces. We like Las Cruces and had a great time, but were ready to go. We were on the road at 9:00AM. We took I-10 out of Las Cruces and changed over to HWY 70 in Lordsburg, NM. Then HWY 60 to Globe, AZ . The drive up HWY 60 and the Salt River Canyon is breathtaking in its beauty. The day could not have been better, clear blue skies, temperatures in the sixties, and no traffic to speak of. A great day to travel. If you find yourself in Arizona...

Sep 15, 2017 - Show Low AZ

Fri, 15 Sept: Happy Birthday Shel... We were up with the sun. There were a few showers in the evening but they abated overnite and we both slept very, very well. It was nice and quiet and dark. At just shy of 5,000' elevation the desert also got cold so we fired up our bedroom furnace before getting out of bed for "real". We enjoyed a simple breakfast and got ourselves and the Carpes ready for the road. After retracting the slides, checking the car tow equipment, brakes, and lites Sandi pulled out of our boondocking spot a few minutes after...

Jul 21, 2015 - Lava, lava, lava.

We were in the mood for hiking, so when we visited the El Malpais National Monument and Conservation Area, we were able to satisfy our craving. The lava beds were located in the National Monument portion, the arch was in the conservation area side of the highway. The sandstone bluffs were overlooking the lava flows. The lava flows are the youngest (3,000 years) in the United States, excluding Hawaii, not to be confused with Mt. St. Helens which was a pyroclastic flow, not a lava flow. The temperature was quite nice(low 80's) and afforded us...

Apr 28, 2014 - Back On The Road

We are all packed up and ready to hit the road in the morning. We enjoyed our two months in Show Low very much. The cost per month was a great deal too, it was only $325 plus electric. We enjoyed all the surrounding towns too, there is a lot to see and do in the area. We were totally happy with the awesome weather, it is so much cooler than other parts of Arizona because of the higher elevation. We even had snow a couple of times. ;-) We will be exploring more of Arizona on our drive tomorrow before heading back to Utah. We are planning to...

We are enjoying our time in Show Low. We have been busy planning to drive several scenic drives in the area. Stay tuned for them soon. This area is loaded with places to see and things to do.
