Since the park itself doesn't offer much to do our 4 days here should be plenty, not to say we might not back again.We have been treated to some beautiful sunsets, the mountains block our sunrises.
On our walk through City of Rocks we were serenaded by crickets, they were everywhere and then we happened upon a few looking to fight. Seems they all wanted the leg of their fallen comrade.
Dave spotted this little guy, he wasn't happy about being bothered, thankfully no snakes were seen. :)
We spent an enjoyable morning walking around City of Rocks State Park, then headed up to Silver City where we had lunch. We had thought to go up to the Gila Cliff Dwellings but it was another 2 hours up the road, we would have arrived shortly before they closed so we'll save that for another time.
City of Rocks has a desert botanical garden that looks to need some TLC, name signs were gone and no one had tended it for recently.
On the way home we stopped by Spring Canyon which is part of Rockhound State Park, this is a day use area. The road in has a 17% grade so don't plan on bringing your rv in to it. We hike their lover's leap trail, never found the leap but the views were awesome.
Tuesday Dave wanted to hike the mountain behind the campground, I had had enough of high places the day before so he headed out on his own.
Today is our last day here then we head to Tuscon, we will be staying at Justin's Diamond J RV Park outside of the city. We'll be there for a week, $17/night-full hook ups, so no conserving and a long hot shower or two. We've been to Tuscon once before but only had a day there which was way too short, this time we should be able to get a lot of sight seeing in, if anyone has any suggestions of places to visit let us know.
|Happy Hump Day!!!|
Until next time...
