We had a great eleven day run. We tried to spend money and let folks know we supported keeping the parks open. This time of year its great hiking, and paddling weather. Our first trip to Catalina SP and we were met with great sunsets, running creeks, fantastic hiking trails. Campgrounds again we perfect, lots of room and peacful nights.
We took the opportunity to visit nearby Pima Air Museum, seeing an F-111 from Upper Heyford brought back memories.
We finished up our run with lay-up at Picacho Peak, again flowers and Nanc was in dreamland, and hey is there a better place for sunset campfires? We finnaly stopped at Painted Rocks near Gila Bend, AZ. Nice BLM campground, interesting rock art and spiritual place, great deal at 2 bucks for a visit...
Thanks friends, saw a few fellow Streamers out there, San Diegans in their Bambi headed for Miami, Biology teachers in a 25 Ocean Breeze really layed back in the relax mode, and Hans looking for the perfect free camping spot...Hmmm Monument Valley....have'nt been there for a bit, thanks Mike for the tip! TB, yeah, ya'll live in a great camping state.
