Yesterday we left Al and Kelly’s home in Congress and drove to Yuma via Buckeye and Gila Bend. We took the the Vulture Peak road to Buckeye, which was a good road with no traffic to speak of. The road wound through the desert with many Cholla and Saguaro Cactus.
We went to Buckeye because Kelly had told us there was a Cracker Barrel Restaurant there ( we had never been to one) we found it right away, the food was good and very reasonable. Skip left with a map showing all the Cracker Barrel Restaurants in the US.
A funny thing happened just before we went to the restaurant, I went into the bathroom in the RV just, as I was reaching for the toilet paper, a lizard came flying off the roll. I darn near had a heart attack, I am not particularly scared of lizards but I wasn’t expecting it. Skip took it out to the parking lot and let it go.
We arrived at Ogilbe Rd which is in California, 12 miles from Yuma we were so lucky to find the same spot we stayed in last year. There is a desert garden, and the site itself has been raked so it is fine,fine gravel.
Lots of room for the dogs to run.
When we were staying with Al and Kelly we went into the town of Wickenburg, which is a pretty little tourist town, which was fun to explore.
Some of the sights and people we saw.
I don’t know why the sky look so dark when I took this picture I’m pretty sure it wasn’t.
