Wish I could say this is the view from our campsite, but it was from a hike we took yesterday at Usery Mountain Regional Park, just a few miles from the RV park, east of Phoenix. The Southwest Lazy Daze Get-together starts Wednesday at Usery Mountain, and we decided to come a few days early so Jim could go to the dentist.
We thought we would get a regular site at the park and move over to the group area on Wednesday morning, but they were full. We could have stayed in the overflow area, just a parking lot, but it was raining when we got here and we wanted electricity, so we called some RV parks that honor Passport America and found a site at Happy Days RV. It’s the typical Arizona snowbird park, lots of license plates from Canada and Minnesota, spending the winter here. Since it’s raining again today, we are glad to have power.
The desert is really pretty around this area, and we are looking forward to doing more hiking with the sun shining. Looks like the rain should end sometime today. Maybe the desert flowers will start to bloom soon.
While in Tucson, we finally tried a pizza from Magpie’s Gourmet Pizza. It was excellent. Whole wheat crust, and they offer a light pizza without mozzarella. The Mediterranean was delicious and we will look for them again in our travels. Yes, we love pizza!
