Our View Of Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora, Mexico…

We depart Nogales, Arizona this morning. We spent an enjoyable three nights here parked at the VFW Post #2066.

The VFW Post itself is an unusual building. Located on a small hill, perhaps 200 feet higher than the main drag of Grand Avenue also known at Interstate Highway Business Route 19. The area is all of a rolling-hills mode. It affords a nice view of the surrounding areas…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view...

Being up higher and back away from the Grand Avenue traffic has also made it a very quiet stay. Also on this hill is a cell phone tower, so we’ve had a great cell phone and Internet signal while here. Mary and I have speculated that most likely the unusual building was originally a restaurant. This is the view from our dining room window…

The VFW Post was kind enough to provide us with an electrical hookup which is always nice to have. Here’s a Google Earth view showing our location of just one mile from the Mexico Border which is clearly identifiable in this image…

The motorhome is facing in a southerly direction. A through-the-windshield view allowed us to see across the border into Mexico…

And at night-time afforded us this view…

The weather has been sunny with daytime temperatures in the low 70’s with a nice breeze and nighttime temperatures in the 40’s. All in all, it’s been a very enjoyable stay.

Yesterday was laundry and do odds and ends kind of day. This morning, after a scheduled oil change and lube job for the motorhome, we’ll head to Lake Patagonia Arizona State Park about 20 mile distant for a planned two-day stay. Both Lake Patagonia and our next planned destination after that are kind of out in the toolies, so if you don’t hear from us for a few days…not to worry.
