Our View Of Nogales, Arizona And Nogales, Sonora, Mexico (GA33)

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 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Soledad Canyon RV Resort at Acton, California. I’m expecting to depart here March 27th.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

In 2012-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

 

 

This entry was posted February 27, 2012…

 

 

 

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.

Dos Nogales – Arizona/Mexico (GA32)

Dos in Spanish means two.

 

 

Yesterday Mary and I drove the Bronco about one mile from our parking spot at the VFW Post #2066 in Nogales, Arizona to the border with Mexico. In old town Nogales, Arizona we visited the old court house, an Arizona Ranger archive room and a museum. We then walked across the border into Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. There we went to the fanciest hotel in the city and had a great inexpensive meal. Afterwards we wandered around the curio shops that cater to the tourists. We were in that Nogales about two hours before crossing back into the United States.

 

 

Nogales, Arizona has a population of about 22,000. Nogales, Sonora, Mexico has a population of about 220,000. Nogales in Spanish means “walnuts”. This area was so named because of the many black walnut trees that were in this area many years ago.

Here are some photos that I took…

The old court house lobby in Nogales, Arizona…

 

 

 

 

 

Inside of the old court house, the Arizona Rangers maintain a small archive. One of the Rangers as seen in the below photo grew up in Lynnfield, Massachusetts…just a few miles from where I lived in Revere from ages 10 to 18…

 

 

 

 

 

The Primera Alta Historical Society Museum had the two old city jail cells…

 

 

 

 

 

Preparing to cross into Mexico we could see a portion of the fence that separates the United States and Mexico which is on the right in the below photo. To read about this highly controversial fence, click this link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexico_%E2%80%93_United_States_barrier

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s where you enter Mexico…

 

 

 

 

 

which deposits you on this pleasant plaza…

 

 

 

 

 

We ate lunch at the Fray Marcos de Niza Hotel because it was highly recommended by the Arizona Ranger. This is the hotel lobby…

 

 

 

 

 

This was our view during lunch…

 

 

 

 

 

After lunch we wandered around the local curio shops…

It was another enjoyable day. The visit into Mexico was somewhat disappointing for me as it is such a large city. Nothing like my past experiences during my Mexico and Central America trip in 2004. No old world flavor is left in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico….at least near the border

3 Miles Beyond The Edge Of The World (GA4)

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 22nd 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’m planning to depart here February 12th.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

 

 

This entry was posted January 29, 2012…

 

 

That’s according to this cute little sign we saw in the Ajo, Arizona Museum. Here’s the proof…

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We spent our second night at VFW Post #3578 where they have a very nice veterans memorial in front of their building. Three separate memorial gravestones list the names of those from Ajo who lost their lives in World War II, Vietnam and Korea. Yesterday was chili cook-off day. At 7:00 AM, I was outside helping the men set up tents and tables for the event while Mary went inside to help the women cook…

 

 

 

 

 

Later in the morning we wandered around the downtown plaza area…

 

 

 

 

 

A very huge part of Ajo’s history revolves around the big open-pit copper mine which has been closed for some time…

 

 

 

 

 

This Google Earth view of Ajo shows why the mine played such a large part on Ajo’s history…

 

 

 

To read all about the New Cornelia Mine, click this Wikipedia link…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Cornelia_mine

 

 

 

 

 

Then we went for about a one hour visit at the Ajo Museum where a very knowledgeable docent did a wonderful job of telling us about the mine…

 

 

 

 

 

And other interesting facts about Ajo’s history…

 

 

 

To read all about Ajo, click this Wikipedia link…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajo,_Arizona

 

 

 

Then back to the VFW Post for lots of chili! We sampled the five different competitor’s entries and because I’m an ex-quality control engineer…I picked the ultimate winner. Mary chose some one other than my selection. In addition there was a salsa challenge, an open auction, a silent auction and musical entertainment. Everyone was very friendly and we had an enjoyable time.

 

 

 

To see the other 33 photos I took, click this link…
https://picasaweb.google.com/110455945462646142273/AjoArizona

 

 

 

Later this morning we’ll head about 40 miles south to Organ Pipe National Monument. That means we’ll be out in the toolies…which means a questionable Internet signal. If you do not hear from us for several days…not to worry.

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

 Yesterday was partly sunny and 84 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 84 degrees.

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

A Touch Of Nostalgia (GA3)

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 22nd 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’m planning to depart here February 12th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

In 2012-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

This entry was posted January 28, 2012…

 

 

Yesterday Mary and I drove the about 65 miles from Painted Rocks Historic Park to Ajo, Arizona. Along the  way we passed through Gila Bend, Arizona where we started south on Arizona highway 85 towards Mexico.

 

It was the first time I’ve driven this highway since January 2, 2004…the first day of my 343 day, 16,000+ mile RV trip through Mexico and Central America. Gila Bend, Arizona was our meeting-up and kick-off point…

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

That’s me in the blue vest and white hat just to the right of center. 17 people in 11 rigs started the trip. Only two people in separate rigs went the full pre-planned route. Myself and Bud Kuball (then new friend and now good friend) fourth from left.

 

 

 

 

 

As I drove south on Route 85 it was fun to reminisce those days of a little more than eight years ago. We had not a clue of what we would see and experience. It turned out to be much better than my best pre-trip imaginations. A true life experience!

 

 

 

 

 

Here are three photos from yesterday’s trip on Highway 85…

 

 

 

 

A Border Patrol check point…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To help celebrate my nostalgia… (remember these photos were taken with a film camera and developed along the way…)

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 175 miles from Gold Hill, Oregon to Anderson, California.

All but one mile of the entire trip was on Interstate Highway 5.

 

Along the way, I traveled over Siskiyou Pass in Oregon and passed alongside of Mt. Shasta in California..

 

Today’s subject…

 

Here are some of the photos that I took yesterday along the way…
