The Painted Desert Trail

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Yuma, Arizona. I was expecting to leave here recently, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.

 

I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!

A “hoodoo” is part of the Imperial Wildlife Refuge which is an AZ State Park. It was created by erosion and is about 20 feet tall…

It is a result of volcanic activity 30,000 years ago and is a rainbow of colors. The trail is 1.3 miles long and offers views of the Colorado River Valley.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was mostly sunny and 70 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly cloudy and 65 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

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

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

  1. What are the best, not too hot months to visit Arizona? We enjoy that flexibility of Rving too, here today, who knows where tomorrow. We are heading to Destin, FL area for a month, and then would like to head north along the East Coast. Any suggestions ?

      During the winter I usually arrive in Yuma late December ans stay until late February. Yuma is only 38 feet elevation, hence great winter weather similar to Florida without the humidity. It’s also very RV friendly. I’ve read about 100,000 snowbirds spend some potion of the winter here. You can find average monthly temperatures for any location on the Internet. Safe travels!
