Last Wednesday our 8 weeks in Cottonwood, AZ came to a close and it was time to rev up the RV and hit the road heading east. We are still in shock at how quickly the time flew by but we sure had a fun time. We surprised a few dear RV friends when they arrived at Dead Horse Ranch State Park. Trudy did a triple take when, while driving into the park, she saw our Jeep, then our RV and then me sitting outside! Alan was following in the RV with a big smile on his face. What fun it is to see friends you have not seen in over a year. We also snuck up on Ed and Sandy and loved seeing and hearing their reaction to Moxie running into their RV.
Sandy, Rita and I took a trip to Out of Africa to enjoy the amazing animals as well as enjoy some girl catch up time.

Nothing like a kayak down the Verde River on a warm sunny AZ day! Thanks, Rita and Heather!
One last hike in Flagstaff which Tom swore I was trying to kill him on. It started at 7,000ft and climbed (QUICKLY) to 9,300ft but was well worth the effort as we had amazing views and a first sighting for both of us!

|And then another one! Look closely - he blends in very well.|
We are currently in New Mexico as we waited here for 4 days until a few storms got ahead of us. I'll show you this beautiful area in another blog (hopefully soon). Tomorrow we'll head out and land in Arkansas on Monday for a few days. Hot Springs National Park here we come!
Til next time...Happy Trails!
