Painted Rock Petroglyph campground

Coming back to the USA through San Luis border crossing was quite an experience. First, cars and trucks are lined up to get approved and people are walking in and out of traffic, selling their wares. Terry did his best to maneuver PeeWee and the Toad into the RV lane, which by the way was NOT easy. We were almost at the gate when Terry checked the side mirrors and realized that we might be too close to a big cement divider pole. Holy cats he was right!!! About one inch away from crashing into that pole, which would have ripped off the awning and the back end of the RV! The border control agent was really calm and suggested we unhook the Toad so we could CAREFULLY back up. So, among all this traffic, 6 lanes across, we got it done! (Terry didπŸ‘πŸ˜˜πŸ’•). Not a scratch! And they waved us through without an inspection! Not that we had anything that would have caused a problem πŸ˜‰. Off we went, to Yuma Arizona, to stay one night with Pete and Pat, friends from Palisade Colorado.

So now we are at Painted Rock Petroglyph campground between Yuma and Tucson. It’s quite remote, but there are other campers around.

Terry and I were up super early for the lunar eclipse. These photos just don’t capture the beauty of this special event.

Today we went on a bike ride through the desert. We rode the ATV trails. Whoa, what a rough ride! But great scenery!

We did not see any scorpions or javelinas. Only a few lizards and a hawk.

We managed 9.5 miles without a major injury. πŸ˜‰

Our day was complete when the sun set in the west at the same time as the moon rose in the east! Magical!

Cool desert evenings make for comfortable sleeping. Good night!
