Sun. Feb. 26 Heading East

Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America 
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we today ?

        Bright, sunny and a warm day, its gonna be a great travel day. We are now officially homeward bound. 9 am heading thru Yuma along I-8 we have a nice comfortable 209 mile trip today.
209 miles today
        The east end of Yuma rises into the foothills winding our way up, down and thru the pass, with some lovely scenery and a steep windy road.

thru the pass and down into the flat desert
        A couple of hours on the road and a couple rest areas to stop stretch our legs, and make a bite to eat for lunch.
rest area 
        There was a long stretch of interstate flat land, on the north side we noticed green fields and huge cattle ranches. And on the south side rows and rows of massive bales of cotton

         A little further along from very little desert vegetation the scenery is these huge Saguaro Cactus populating the desert floor. Real Arizona landscape.

        We are heading to Picacho Peak Rv resort located at the base of Picacho Peak (of course). And we can spot this distinctive peak about 20 miles away where I-8 merges onto I-10 at Casa Grande.

        After stopping for fuel at the Flying J in Eloy we arrived at the resort about 1 pm. Our friend Steve was on the gate so he welcomed us back and got us checked in.
nice large site
        Setting up our dish I noticed these two lonely, tiny flowers all alone in the desert dirt so small and colorful compared to the mostly grey surroundings.

        A few people stopped by to say hello and welcome us back. This is a very nice resort we have spent three Christmases at over the years, attended many dances and dart nights here as well. So we know many of the fulltime and winter residents here. Its always nice to stop for a couple nights while we are driving by.

         Steve got off work at 4 o'clock so we visited with him and Barb for a quick Happy Hour then take a break for supper.

         So a quick easy meal today,  a hot pork sandwich (our leftover pork loin roast), with mashed potatoes, gravy and peas, just hit the spot.
so tasty
           Its still a nice night so back to visit some more catching up, chin waggin, a few more people drop by to say hello, then we went over to visit with Spud and Jan.
relaxing on their porch
         Finally satisfied that we were caught up enough for today we called it a night. Its so nice to stop and visit with various friends that we have met over the years.
