Road Runner BLM, Quartzsite, Arizona
Again this morning we were at the freezing mark but the day did warm up to around the 60F/15C with a breeze kicking up now and then but it was a nicer day than the last few have been. Tomorrow is supposed to be better still. We shall see how it goes.
|We stopped at some of the vendors along Kuewn Street. |
|It's very empty. |
This morning Riley and I decided we needed to do something and so we climbed into the Dogsled and headed into town. Our first stop was RV Lifestyles to make an appointment for later next week and to get a tank filled with propane. After that we managed to stop in a few other spots to check out a few things, we managed to find a loaf of bread and soon we were heading back down the US/AZ 95 but we didn't stop at Road Runner. Instead we kept going to check out a few places we might like to camp in the future years. We also checked out some more of the Road Runner LTVA area before coming home.
|I love this grouping of saguaros. |
|Those are part of the Kofa Mountains back there. |
After lunch I hauled myself out for a bit of a walk, my first in a long time. I didn't go very far or very fast but I did get moving. It wasn't too bad sitting outside for happy hour but I came home long before the sun set as I could feel the cold seeping around my blanket and my left knee wasn't impressed. I'm truly hoping for warmer drier days ahead, it's been the dampest and coldest year we've spent out here.
|These are also part of the Kofa's. |

Chatted with my dad, they had snow yesterday. He and my brother Rick are almost finished cutting wood and hauling it home. Later in the spring Dad will split it all. It sounds as though some of the Maple Sugar operations are starting to get their lines ready and the trees tapped, they seem to feel that the warm weather will come quickly and they want to catch the first run. No tapping happening on the Dad's/Rick's farm yet.
|Three from one root. |
|The outside one is growing two arms. |
|A bit blurry but the this is the saguaro in the above two photos. |
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Until next time.....
Take care, stay safe,
