Happy Trails RV Park
October 2020 brings us back for our usual 3 weeks stay in Surprise, AZ to stay with his step-mom. We have our usual spot we rent.
Don't scare the cows, they are thirsty!
These open pine cones looked like flowers.
Spotted this guy on the way in. He was a few inches long.
Prescott National Forest lays claim to the largest measured alligator juniper, which is 46 feet tall and is 27 feet, 4 inches around. These trees may reach 500 to 800 years of age. This one is estimated to be 2000 years old.
You can see the scorched areas where the fire burned. Above our bird buddy watches us.
It's 2020. What else than a mask?
There is a scarf for each firefighter that died and other special things attached to this.
Firefighters from all around the world come to pay their respects and leave something special.
Here are pictures of Steve standing on each side of the tree.
The scales of the Alligator Tree. It's easy to see why it's called that.
We walked all around exploring the area and had a nice lunch before heading back. There was also a geocache hidden on a nearby hill.
It's really heating up as we head back to the truck.
This little guy was on the way out. He was only a couple of inches long.
It may be hot but it is October and there is some changing of the leaves happening.
Last stretch before we arrive back in Surprise. What a great day.
Beautiful AZ RV Repair promised us they could weld it and would stand by their repair with a 100% warranty. Well, we didn't have a choice so repair it would be.
(fast forward to today, 2/8/2021 and the tank is good as new)
We celebrated Steve's birthday before we left Arizona for the year. It was so hot that his birthday cake that I picked up actually had the frosting melting down the sides by time I got back home. There was only so much I could do to fix it without making it worse! Too funny!
Crossing into Nevada.
I like how some states really decorate up their overpasses.
That's Las Vegas.
Only bummer was no margaritas. We were so tired and hungry though we didn't care.
Next up we finally get to explore the Alabama Hills!
