Back to Desert Trails

It was raining when we awoke in Gila Bend. Odel immediately ran outside to soap up the sides of Scoopy so the rain could rinse off the suds and dirt. The rain stopped just before we packed up and hit the road.

Many RV'ers are familiar with this view, heading east on I-8 towards Casa Grande. The dryer weather was short lived... we hit rain again at Eloy and chased it into Tucson.

The rain had turned to sprinkles when we arrived at Desert Trails RV Park, our favorite commercial desert RV park. We stayed here for a month in our first year of travel, and come back for a week or so a couple times each year. The owners, Pericles and Kyoko, are a big draw, but we really come back for the beautiful location and great hiking.

After the rain quit, we took a walk out out front door into the desert, where the trails adjoin Tucson Mountain Park and Saguaro National Park West. You can hike for miles, with great views in all directions!

Our best sunset photos ALL come from Desert Trails.
