This morning, we left Ajo at 9:30 heading south on hwy 85 to Why, Arizona. We gassed up the motorhome, and left hwy 85 at the “Y” and started east on hwy 86 toward Tucson. Hwy 86 is a beautiful road going through the desert with Saquaro, Cholla and Ocotillo cacti everywhere mingled with the mountains that came and went all the way to Tucson.
The highway goes right through the middle of the Tohon O’Odham Nation. All along the route, there were small Indian towns with schools and homes, but did not see any businesses or service stations along the road. As we were getting close to Tucson, we could see the Mt Kitt Observatory.
Decided we would dump the tanks and get water in Tombstone, so we headed south on hwy 80 towards the mountains. Stopped at the Tombstone RV Park at the north end of town and asked if they would allow us to dump our tanks and take on water and they said we could for $12. It was 3 pm and I decided we would just stay for the night and get nice hot showers and then the dump and water would be a part of the nightly charge.
See you later.
