After Nevada, we headed South to Yuma, Arizona!! Was in for a big surprise because we thought Yuma was just another desert 🌵 city!! Well…it is but it is know for agriculture too!! I know…I was surprised too! They have hundreds of acres of alfalfa, a variety of lettuces, kale, & the list goes on! There is quite a bit of greenery & the town overall is so nice!! We love it!!
It’s been a whirlwind time here. Lots of busy days! Found a Dentist in Los Algodones Mexico & had some dental work done. Los Algodones is known as “Molar City” You can look on YouTube & check it out! The people were so precious & the food….well…it was our favorite! 🌶
We met up with long time friends from Modesto, California. Ron & Candy Wright. They took us to Old Town Yuma to the Garden Cafe. It’s an outdoors restaurant that has the best food & ambience.
We went to a Camel Farm, Martha’s Date Garden & saw how sugar dates are harvested & packaged. I came away with some wonderful date sugar. All natural!! We also had a date shake & it was thick & yummy! Also toured the Yuma Territorial Prison!! It was known as the “Desert Alcatraz” it was really cool. The Colorado River runs along side of Yuma & there are wonderful spots to see.
The 5er has been wonderful but since we were going to be in Yuma for a month or so. We took her in for some minor warranty work. Our warranty runs out in July & that is quickly approaching. Country RV in Yuma are wonderful & they have taken care of everything. We haven’t for sure decided but may come back to Yuma Arizona for winter.
Onward & upward!! Will be a week in Tombstone, AZ, gotta see where Wyatt Earp was Sheriff & the famous OK Corral shoot out!! We recently watched the movie Wyatt Earp so it should be fun to see where it all took place.
Then on to New Mexico, Texas Panhandle, Amarillo, home of The Big Texan & our cousin Tammy, then North through Colorado, will see old friends, Laurie & family, Nebraska & South Dakota!! We will be there soon Mt Rushmore, Badlands & the Buffalo Reserve!!
Thank you for your prayers and we are still enjoying our time on the road!
America is Beautiful!! 🇺🇸
