Yesterday, I decided it was move day, so this morning, as I read my blogs and ate breakfast, I would stop every once in awhile to pack things and store them away.
Last night, just at dusk, my two little Gila Woodpeckers came back to the nest. They are so cute. I’m sure there are some little ones in that cactus.
Yesterday, I mistakenly called them Cactus Wrens, but Joyce, one of my readers, pointed out that they were not wrens, but woodpeckers. Thank you Joyce.
Around 11:30, I was done; took a few last photos of my home and we left for Saddle Mountain BLM. Going to miss this beautiful and serene place.
All packed and the Jeep is hooked up and we are ready to go. Said goodbye to Ole Evil Eyes and my two Gila Woodpeckers that live in the cactus on the right and off we went, heading to Quartzsite.
Needed to dump tanks, take on water and get gas, so felt that going to Quartzsite would be safest. Only have 75 miles to travel today and not sure where down the line I could get these things done.
Heading West through the Plomosa Mountains. Lots of high clouds coming in from the West today.
Then down into the La Posa Plain toward hwy 95.
Got everything done and headed East on I-10. Proud of the American Flag out here in the Southwest.
It wasn’t long at all before I could see the Saddle Mountain range off in the distance on the right side of the interstate.
When we exited the interstate at the Salome Road exit, I just had to stop and get a photo of those majestic and rugged mountains. To me, these are the prettiest mountains around here.
Traveled about three miles on a dirt road through farm land and soon dead ended into Courthouse Road. Made a left and watched carefully once Saddle Mountain was directly to my right. Kind of hard to see the dirt road that goes into the BLM land. I believe there are several places to turn in, if you miss the first one.
Pulled into the BLM land at the North end of Saddle Mountain. Time now is around 3 o’clock. Just perfect.
Surprised to see the number of RVs in here, but found myself a nice secluded spot and set up camp.
There are lots of places to hike and Jeep roads all through the mountains. Going to have fun here for the the next 10 or so days.
Everything is green and yellow flowers are blooming everywhere. What a beautiful place to live.
Here’s one for Moonfly. She always wanted to see Yuma in the flowers, but I said he was too manly. Guess not!
See you later.
