Arizona had a hard act to follow. Coming out of
California, we were a little spoiled. One of our first
days in Arizona though, we camped in our first "unsecured"
location. There was an RV park that was closing up for the
season, in which we found two RVers who informed us of some
Bureau of Land Management land down the road on which we could
camp. The spot ended up being a piece of paradise.
We had a nice fire and were treated to a sky that made you think
you were in a planetarium. It seemed like a movie set
(re-occurring theme). The howl in the distance was a
little unsettling, but the cool dessert night air made for a
good nights sleep.
A lot of our travels in Arizona were through dessert areas
populated with cactus and over mountains that offered
spectacular views of the many colors of the landscape.
Arizona also offered perhaps the nicest family I have met, the
Felix's. I can not say enough good things about how kind
the Felix family is and was to us. From BJ and Sara taking
us in for two nights, to Kevin and his family treating us as
family members at their picnic, the kindness and generosity
never stopped. It truly would leave you speechless at
times. Thank you again to the Felix family!!!!
