When Bridget and I awake to the new year, we are camped west of Gila Bend, Arizona (southwest of Phoenix and northwest of Tucson).
New Year’s Day is a travel day!
We go west on Interstate-8 to the southwestern corner of Arizona and make camp at Mittry Lake National Wildlife Refuge, located a few miles north of Yuma.
A search for a new crew member at the Yuma Humane Society shelter is unsuccessful.
On our return to Painted Rock, we receive a very special welcome!
Next we travel south of Ajo to the tiny town of Why, Arizona where we settle into a pretty boondock.
Bridget and I tour Organ Pipe National Monument.
We still miss Spike who passed the previous August, yet we enjoy times like this when it’s “just the two of us,” fellow vagabonds and pals.
The photo at right is Bridget in the Perfect Tow Vehicle’s co-pilot seat on our road tour of Organ Pipe.
Bees and coyotes!
It’s also where I look out the window of the Best Little Trailer and spot a coyote in our front yard chomping on the apple core I had discarded!
We like this pretty boondock so much that I decide not to be specific about its location.
If you want to visit this area, there is an RV park in Why as well as free camping among the saguaros south of town.
The last week in January Bridget and I head back to Yuma and cross over into California.
The Ogilby Road – American Mine – Sidewinder Road boondocking area is a popular winter destination for snowbirds and full-timers. We find a nice camp.
While at this location, the Best Little Trailer receives some loving care at Sun Bums RV Service in Yuma (for the fridge and propane regulator).
The Cargo Muchacho Mountains in view from our camp are transformed by light and shadow.
I hope, dear reader, that you are enjoying this review of camps. I know I am! It’s hard to choose only a few photos to represent each camp. It’s also hard to pull my face away from all the memories I find in my photo files!
Okay, back to the review . . . .
Oh my, oh my, the birds at the Salton Sea!
Contrary to how the Salton Sea is usually described, Corvina Beach does not have a disagreeable odor while we are here. It turns out to be one of the best camps of 2015!
Every day I roll out the awning over our sitting area.
While at this camp, Bridget and I ride to Palm Springs — another unsuccessful effort to find a new crew member!
More photos of the Salton Sea Camp in the next post in this series reviewing camps and scenes from 2015.
