Pioneers Museum – Imperial, California

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

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 118 miles from Yuma, Arizona to Salton, California. More about this place in tomorrows posting. I’ll depart later this morning.

 

Along the way I stopped at the Imperial County Historical Society Pioneers Museum in Imperial, California. A really big and neat museum!

 

Here’s their website link… http://pioneersmuseum.net/

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Arizona (Day 1) (GA5)

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 tomorrow.

 

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 30, 2012…

 

 

We arrived here yesterday after about a 40 mile drive from Ajo, Arizona. The way the crow flies (presumably in a straight line), our campground is only 4.2 miles from Mexico. In the below Google Earth image “X” marks our campground and “B” indicates the border crossing…

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

This is the border crossing that I used for my 2004, 343 day, 16,000+ mile RV trip through Mexico and Central America. See my previous blog entry by clicking this link…
http://wp.me/pDCku-3sb

 

 

I have crossed into Mexico over the years three different times at this border crossing, but have never taken the time to stop and enjoy Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument…but this year is different. I’m expecting we will be here for a four-day stay.

 

 

 

 

 

Approaching our campground area…

 

 

 

 

 

Our campsite is delightfully pretty, peaceful and quiet…

 

 

 

 

 

After we got everything set up, we went to the visitors center about 1.5 miles away…

 

 

 

 

 

During two hours there we saw a hawk in a nearby tree…

 

 

 

 

 

I took this photo of a photo of a Gila Monster as I do not expect to see one in person…

 

 

 

 

 

In addition we watched nice 15 minute video about the Sonoran Desert and enjoyed an informative 20 minute talk by a park ranger…

 

 

We found out the Sonoran Desert is in excess of 100,000 square miles and relatively young at about only 10,000 years old. Also the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is 516 square miles.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s last night’s sunset photo…

 

 

 

After it got really dark, we sat outside for a while and stared at a few million stars. Really neat! The weather forecast for the next several days is for sun and temperatures in the mid to low 70’s. really neat!

 

 

 

Today we will begin our exploration of the monument.

3 Miles Beyond The Edge Of The World (GA4)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.

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.

A Touch Of Nostalgia (GA3)

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…)

Painted Rocks Petroglyphs, Arizona (GA2)

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 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!

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 26, 2012…

Yesterday we drove to about 80 miles from Wellton, AZ to Painted Rocks Historic Park.

Along to way instead of being out on Interstate Highway 8, whenever possible I chose to drive on Old U.S. Highway 80…aka the Ocean To Ocean Highway. In this area of Arizona the old highway parallels the Gila River which in the old days was the major highway for pioneers moving westward to California. Modern man has changed that and it is now just a dribble. You can read about the Gila River by clicking this Wikipedia link…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gila_River

You can read all about the Painted Rocks Petroglyphs by click this BLM link…

http://www.blm.gov/az/st/en/prog/recreation/camping/dev_camps/painted_rock.html

and this Wikipedia link…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Painted_Rocks_%28Arizona%29

Here’s what the petroglyph site looks like on Google Earth…

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…

From a higher elevation you can see Interstate Highway 8 about 12 miles to the south. You can also see the Gila Riverbed flowing towards the lower left…

This is my second time here. I was first here in January 1996. It’s a lot different from I remember as very remote and quiet…like it was the end of the World. We were the only people here. Not so now. There are about 12 RV’s in the campground and trucks roaring by on a nearby road. Heck, there’s even a four-bar Internet and cell phone signal.

But then, I have trouble remembering what happened yesterday! 🙂

Now that you know all about the petroglyphs, here are some of the photos I took while there…

These are the two petroglyph hills as seen from our campsite, they are maybe 50 feet high. The hill on the right has the most petroglyphs as it was closer to the Mormon Battalion Trail where all the pioneers such as Kit Carson passed…

Shortly after our arrival we met a local expert. Jerry Ahnert has been studying the trail for 42 years. He gave us about a 1/2 hour seminar about the history of the trail which also served the Butterfield Overland Mail Company.

In the above photo, he told us the white skull marked the actual trail…even though there were no signs identifying it. We presume it’s to keep it from being stolen.

Turning 180 degrees and looking west…this is what the trail looks like today…

He has written a book entitled “The Butterfield Trail And Overland Mail Company of Arizona, 1858-1861. It presents a very detailed of the history of the 400 mile portion of the trail in Arizona. Mary bought his book for $29.95. To order you can contact him at nobottomgulch@yahoo.com.

Here are some other photos that I took…

And finally…a panorama sunset shot. The two petroglyph hills are to the right of the motorhome and above the Bronco…

And finally finally…a cloudless desert sunset with a jet plane exhaust trail, a quarter moon and the planet Venus in the background…

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!
