Hotel San Carlos – Yuma, Arizona

The motorhome is now parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California. Less than 1/2 mile away is the Colorado River and on the other side…the sunniest place on Earth…Yuma, Arizona. I’m here hanging out and enjoying the nice weather. I have several friends in the area. Mary is currently dealing with some medical issues. Her return-to-me date is now looking like mid-February.

Once the gem of downtown Yuma, the San Carlos Hotel is now residential apartments for seniors on a limited income. This Art Deco building was built in 1930. The hotel often hosted casts and crews making western movies. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places…

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
