Goodbye Californa, Hello Arizona
We left Desert Hot Springs this morning around 9:15 a.m. and arrived in Yuma around 12:45 p.m. (actually 1:45 p.m. as we're now on Mountain Time). It was a good drive, mostly freeway and the sun shone the whole way. Just before we crossed from California into Arizona we noticed some really special sand dunes that Gordon wanted to photograph.
So we got to the Las Quintas Oasis RV Park which had been recommended to me by someone in one of the forums that I participate in, got settled in and then headed back about 16 miles to take photos of the dunes. Very interesting, no vegetation of any kind. They look like they belong in Egypt.
We also stopped at a grocery to pick up some water on the way back to the RV. We needed the water but we also need the jug to tie down the internet satellite dish as we apparently forgot the one we had at a campground somewhere!
While Gordon was finishing setting up I checked out the pool, spa, showers and laundry room. Everything looks really nice so we're here for a week!
