On Monday, Dec 20th we left Midland, TX on our way to Tucson to see Mac’s aunt Vernis. We had a very uneventful trip. We stayed at the KOA at Las Cruces on Monday night.
Tuesday, We got all set up at the Justin’s Diamond J RV Park. It was a pretty nice park but we loved the Passport America price of just $16.00 a night for a pull thru site.
We went over and had dinner with Aunt Vernis and some Boy & Girl Scouts came in to sing Christmas Carols for all of us. It was great.
Vernis is doing exceptionally well for being 92 years young.
On Wednesday we were up and wanted to do some exploring in the Tucson area. We drove around to see the town and I figured out that I am not a big fan of Tucson. We had talked about going to the Saguaro National Park, so off we went to find the East Park with the 9 mile driving loop. We stopped at the Visitor Center and went inside to look at the displays. I found a National Park Passport book and decided to buy one. I got my first stamp there…
The Park was very interesting. The natural desert landscape is something that neither one of us has seen much of.
We had a great afternoon and then we went to dinner at El Merendero for Mexican food for our anniversary. It was really good.
After dinner, we went back over to Aunt Vernis’ to visit for a little while before we went back to the RV for the night.
Thursday we will finish our last leg of our trip to the foothills of Yuma where we will spend the next few months.
