Winter Trip Days 1 & 2/December 15-16

We're now 5 days into our winter trip to southeastern Arizona and southern New Mexico.  I haven't had WiFi all this time, so I'm writing these posts all at once from Willcox, Arizona.

We left early Sunday morning, following our traditional breakfast at McDonald's.  We took the I-10 route to Gila Bend - through Buckeye - and tried to get a place at the Shell/Holt's RV Park. It's a Passport America place, so it would have cost $12.  But, they were full, so we went down the street to Augie's Quail Trail RV Park. We'd been there before, and it's a very nice place, even though we paid $27. (Still not a bad price.)

From Gila Bend, it was about 190 miles to our next stop, Tombstone Territories RV Park.  It's about 12 miles from Tombstone, close to the San Pedro River. They gave us the PA rate, so we paid only $53 for three nights. It's a very, very nice place - long, spacious, pull-through sites, with a view from every site of the Dragoon Mountains.

At sunset, we were treated to the brilliant reds of Arizona sunsets, and then the full moon rose in the east.
