It’s been a full coupla days here in the boondocks. On Sunday afternoon the Big White Beluga rolled into town and joined us at our little spot in the wilds. It was a welcome reunion with much dog-licking and happy paw-play (that would be the dogs, not Sue & Dave), and the two “beasts” slotted [...]
We find ourselves today, yet again, in the boonies. Our new spot is just east of Cottonwood, AZ and has a sweeping view of the valley with afternoon glow to the red rocks of Sedona in the background. It’s a tad closer to the road than we like, but the views and location make it [...]
A simply gorgeous State Park with stunning views of the Superstition Mountains just East of Phoenix, AZ.
Site Quality = 4.5/5
Very nice sites here with just [...]
We’ve stopped for a few days in Phoenix. This is really just a quick breeze-through and we’ve had no plans other than stocking up, re-charging and getting ready to head north.
We’ve been packing it in too.
On the way here we took ”the beast“ through Blue Beacon for a quick wash (rinsing off several months of serious boondocking dust!) followed by some hand [...]
A rather busy, but well-located birding and water-lovers campground ~10 miles from Patagonia in SE Arizona.
Site Quality = 2.5/5
Very varied site-quality in this campground. All sites are paved, [...]
We’ve made it to our most southerly point for the rest of this year. That point is a quirky little community nestled in a in a riparian corridor (riparian being a rather fancy term for ”by the water”) between the Santa Rita Mountains and Patagonia Mountains in SE Arizona. It’s an artsy, eco-friendly kind of place [...]
I imagine it might have looked like this thousands of years ago. In fact I imagine most of the southwest probably looked exactly like this. Long, rolling grasslands swaying and wrapping the hills with their golden fingers. Mesquite trees spotting the landscape with curves of brown as far as the eye can see. Shadows and [...]
A birders paradise and great few-day stopover in SE Arizona

How We Found It: I had heard about this spot from birding friends [...]
Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m not much of a birder. It’s not that I don’t have the interest. I’m actually quite fond of birds and thoroughly enjoy a relaxing afternoon glass of fermented grapes with the sweet sounds of tweets around me (I mean after all, environment is what I’m all about). It’s just that I don’t quite [...]
