PATAGONIA - TUCSON




At the end of my last entry I mentioned the weather man promised temperatures in the low 70's.  It barely made 55* and only for a little while.

We took an awful lot of pictures at Patagonia State Park so I am going to share a few more before moving on to Tucson.


A very pretty bridge going straight up.


This picture was taken at Patagonian







This picture was taken at Theodore Roosevelt Park.  Matched set?




Anyone know what these pretty berries are?

Patagonia State Park has a lake, a man-made lake, not very big.


And they rent boats of all kinds.  Not a bad price and we considered it but it was too cold.

And then we pushed on.   From the park you go south a bit to the town (larger than we expected) of Nogales.  Tucson is just 70 miles north.

We have casino camped at Casino Del Sol before.  The perks for the first time were awesome but alas nothing for subsequent campers.



There were more rigs here than ever before.  Guess the word is out.  

We chose a "site" away from the rest.



We were there before lunch so we had time to shop, do laundry and after supper, we caught a bit of our first Arizona sunset of the season.  Yay, we love Arizona.

We stayed at Casino del Sol. It was packed. I think if we go back, we'll stay at the other one just down the road.

I've never heard a weather person actually "promise" a specific temperature. I don't blame them because they seem to be as often wrong as right.

I pinned your post on Patagonia State Park. Have no idea why we never stopped there. Looks beautiful.

Good to be back in Arizona. Wish I was, too.

Gotta love Southern Arizona, those weather guessers just kinda fool you sometimes.
