Belle is a cheerful 85 years old. She is feisty and still has a twinkle in her eye. She was born in Kentucky and transplanted to Arizona some 20+ years ago. She has led a very interesting life and is more than happy to share many of her stories with you. In spite of her age, she is still sharp as a tack. Despite some unhappy times in her life, she remains upbeat and full of life. it was our pleasure to share our three days visiting her.

I’m not one to write life stories about the people we meet. I tend to tell my stories with photographs. Here’s a link by someone who visited with Belle a while back and will share some more of Belle’s story with you. Click this link…

If you are an RVer and in the area, I urge you to stop and spend a night or two. If you enjoy the unusual, you’ll enjoy your visit to Belle Starr’s Silverado Ranch.

In other news…

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 165 miles to Pancho Villa New Mexico State Park in Columbus, Mexico. The current weather forecast for the next couple of days is very windy and cold nights. We’re currently paid for two nights. Watching the weather forecast will help us decide our next move.
