Saturday, January 13, 2018 – Location: Ajo, AZ
Before I forget it, my son Steve looked up what kind of bird that was in yesterday’s post. It is a female Pyrrhuloxia or better known as desert cardinal.
In the middle of last night, I made the decision to pull up stakes in the morning. So, around 8 A.M. I started packing and by 10 I was on the road into Ajo.
The Ajo car wash had a 12 foot high roof and my MH is 11.4 feet, so it was a perfect fit.
Got the MH washed for $3.75. Can’t beat that deal. The night’s stay was up from $20 last year to $24, but I didn’t quibble over four bucks. The big batteries were in need of some strong electric power, I needed to dump tanks and take on water, so all in all it was a fair deal.
By noon, I was parked and ready to relax. Got a place right on the end of the row with the bathrooms and showers right behind me.
After resting a bit, Yuma and I drove back down to the open mine pit hoping the overlook was open, but again it was not. Maybe in the morning before I leave. I even tried to walk/crawl up Ajo Mountain, but ran out of steam. Still couldn’t get a decent shot. But you can tell it is a big hole.
When we got back to the RV Resort, I hooked up my 100 mile radius local channel antenna to see if I could get NBC. Didn’t get nada again. But, I was lucky. They have a very nice clubhouse with Dish TV and there was no one in there. Turned on the TV at 3:15 and there was the game on a 55 inch TV screen.
In my family pool, I have the Eagles and my grandson, Nick has the Falcons. It was a low scoring game and the Eagles squeaked one out for a win. Went down to the last 54 seconds before the game was decided.
Tomorrow is another travel day. Will be heading west for about 135 miles to Yuma, Arizona for another ten days or so.
Notice how the mural blends the roof of the building on the left into the picture.
Notice the riders in the clouds?
That’s the end of Artist Alley. Hope you enjoyed.
See you later.
