We spend Thursday night at the Ft. Willcox RV Park. With predicated temperatures as low as 19 degrees we thought it was a good idea to park where we could plug in. We stayed here once before it is a nice older park, with level gravel sites. The new owners are very friendly and she was telling Tom how they have bought some property next to them and are planning on putting in longer pull through sites to better accommodate bigger rigs. If this park had been full we probably would not have been able to keep the Jeep hooked up. We took our time leaving as we only would be driving 56 miles today.
|Leaving Ft. Willcox RV Park we have wonderfully blue skies.|
|Our view through out the windshield as we merged onto I-10|
|In a short time we will be riding through the Texas Canyon.|
|Actually, we always make it a point to stop at the Texas Canyon Rest Area.|
It is fascinating how well balanced some very large rocks are.
|A memorial for Officer Noah Merrill.|
It states, he gave his life in the line of duty
on December 11, 1978 just west of this location.
|It is not long and we are headed down and we can see Benson in the distance.|
|Things are a little flatter.|
|Some one in the Arizona Highway Department has a sense of humor.|
What can I say the whole time we are going down and then up as we travel this part of I-10 this song is going through my head. I know we are going down first and then up but this song comes to mind each time.
"What goes up must come down
Spinnin' wheel got to go 'round
Talkin' 'bout your troubles it's a cryin' sin
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel spin..."
~Blood Sweat & Tears - Spinning Wheel
|Now we are going up.|
|We have turned onto Arizona 90.|
|Border Patrol Check Point|
We will stop and see them when we leave here next week.
|Made the turn onto Arizona 82 and we have made it to|
the Quail Ridge RV Resort.
After we got some what settled I headed into Sierra Vista to do some shopping. We were in need of groceries and a few other items. After I got back we decided to go back over to Sierra Vista for dinner and to get a few more groceries at the Fry's.

Today I did some Christmas decorating not really going all out this year but I did want to put a few things out to make it feel more festive. While I did that Tom brought a couple of batches of wash over to the laundry here. Washer still is not working that will be an after Christmas project for Tom. Tom, also did some outside decorating. I will have to take some pictures and post them later today or tomorrow.

We had a nice dinner. Though, I do enjoy when we stop in earlier in the day for lunch and the gentleman is in front of the above sign entertaining the crowd.
