Well, the lunar eclipse and April full moon have come and gone… beautiful! We are further north than we had expected to be by now. Adjusting to cooler temps and higher elevation after so long in Arizona. We truly must be turning into “desert rats,” as we are missing the balmy climate and don’t like needing to turn on heater again. But, great adventures.
To recap the past couple weeks… Tom’s incision is healing beautifully! It was a simple basal cell carcinoma, thankfully. I was able to remove the stitches with a pair of tiny fly fishing scissors, so all is well.
After a couple of days in Phoenix, AZ we moved on to Quartzsite for a few days of total relaxation in the middle of nowhere! Interesting to visit Quartzsite at quiet times of the year in contrast to the January RV fun activities and crowds. Then to Parker, and on to Las Vegas, NV. While in Las Vegas we were able to take care of our BLM credentials process… ready now for our summer volunteer position. We also enjoyed a visit to Red Rock Canyon.
Our plans for time at Lake Mead were thwarted by the Nevada Range War! So, will save a visit to that area for another time. While visiting Valley of Fire we had an awesome sighting! If you look very closely at the photo below, you will see a bighorn sheep standing in the shade of a rock outcropping, towards the bottom center. Our camera does not do this justice, but what a treat to spot it! The small picture is of a display at the visitor center.
Decided it was time for new tires on the motorhome, so moved on to St. George, UT to accomplish that. Also, had a front end alignment… riding well now, and feeling safer!
Enjoyed a few days at Bryce Canyon National Park. Beautiful sites!
Spotted this restored truck and trailer… RVers come in many styles. Sweet!
Well, that’s about it from us for now. Traveling Hwy. 89 north through Utah to Idaho, and then on to Wyoming. Lots to see and do before we settle in for the summer. Sending best wishes to all! Dianne & Tom
