This 'n That

Today was another beautiful 70F (22C) sunny day. I walked a different ATV trail in the desert this morning. It is so quiet and peaceful back in the desert, no traffic noises and this morning, no fighter jets. I have to say that I haven't heard any fighter jets since we've been here but I did see one when we were on our way here on Thursday.

View of our RV from the desert - it's the one in the middle on the left.

I didn't get much accomplished today other than getting my hair colored. That's one job out of the way. The rest of the day was either spent inside or outside, napping and reading.

Gordon got one of the bikes out and went for a ride in the desert this afternoon. We have some organ pipe cactus here but you have to go to the foothills to see it and it's easier to get there by bike. We have those fold up bikes so that's why the bike looks so small.

Hickiwan Trails RV Park is on the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation, therefore there's no tax here so we paid $85/wk all inclusive for our site. However, diesel at the gas station in front of the casino (where the entrance to the park is located) is 3.63 per gallon while in Ajo, it's 3.40. Still not a bargain but definitely better. So we just have to remember to fill up when we're in Ajo. The casino only has slots, haven't tried that out yet. There's also a convenience store located in the same building as the casino. We need to get propane too. Should we buy it here or will it be less expensive if we go off the reservation and go to Why?
