Lalah and I just returned from our first rv trip in close to forty years. Enjoyed it tremendously and nothing occurred to make us decide to take up tiddly-winks instead! Thought we would share some pix with you just to whet your appetite for summer. Here I am in front of our rig---about to set out on the great adventure.
Though the image is a bit dark, I couldn't resist comparing our rig with that giant motor home next to it at a California rest area on I5. We call our little rig Pico, short for "picofarad," which is a small "capacitance." (As you can see, both Lalah and I were electrical
engineers before we retired.)
After visiting our daughter and her new hubby in San Jose, we toured Hearst Castle, staying at San Simeon State Park (the park was great, the Castle not so worthwhile in our opinion). Then we braved the LA traffic over to Ontario, where I attended a woodworking show. After that, we spent several days in Anza-Borrega Desert Park. It was quite nice, but the wind gusted to 55 mph, nearly blowing us off our feet on our hike to see the bighorn sheep in the photo below.
Here is a shot of a desert blossom I took there.
Our next stop was Yuma, visiting the territorial prison and army supply center museums---which were unexpectedly interesting. We then went to Phoenix, where our daughter and son-in-law joined us for a couple of spring training baseball games. They flew back to the Bay Area and we stayed on at the Lost Dutchman Mine State Park just outside Phoenix in the Superstition mountains. Here is a picture of the mountain just behind our trailer.
Well, we've caught the fever! Next major outing will be Glacier National Park when things heat up this summer in Southern Oregon.
