This is still desert, although there are many beautiful trees; sycamores, desert willow, cottonwoods, Pine, and many others that I can't name. The park is almost full. People from all over the United States, from Alaska, Oregon, South Dakota, Illinois, Texas, Georgi, Florida, Michigan, really everywhere.
It's been cold here this week; low in the 30's and highs in the 50's to 60*. Okay, it's cold to me!
We went on a hike to figure out how to get down to that river between the Cottonwood trees. It was a little nerve wracking because the snakes are still out, and you never know what kind of wild life is refreshing itself at the waters edge. BUT, I do hope to pull a few fish out of that Verde River tomorrow morning.
Thousand Trails are a group of membership camping areas. We've been members for years. We joined when the boys were little, and we all loved to go camping. All Thousand Trails offer swimming pools, miniature golf, horseshoes, ping pong tables, tennis, and usually some volleyball or badmitton courts. The thing that so impressed us over the years is the cleanliness of the campsites, restrooms, and the friendliness of the park employees. And there are parks in many of the states in the U.S. They are each different, playing on the landscape of the area. We plan on seeing each and every one of them!
I'll be posting more photos of our vacation during the next week or two. This is really an amazing place.
Have a healthy, happy weekend!
