We went camping

Yes, we still do some camping even though we always take our house with us.  Kara our daughter says we aren’t truly camping..but I like what we do.

Two other couples, us and my niece Jana all took our RVs and went to the White Tank Mountain regional park. It is about an hour drive from where we normally park in Northeast Phoenix.

We did have electric and water hookup so not very isolated. It is a nice desert area though. We have never camped that near so many Saguaro(pronounced Sue-wa ro) cacti before. That is this type…usually the one most people think of when they think of cactus.

We went on Thursday afternoon and came home on Sunday. We got a lot of visiting done.

We took hikes in the desert and up the one short mountain trail to the waterfall…No water now due to so little rain.

 

But the white granite rock walls are why they call this area a White Tank Mountains.

 

 

We had camp fires and smores. Jana had bought these HUGE Marshmallows and the smores were big then! But fun! Here I am getting ready to roast my first one. Kent trying to get his mouth around them…and Jana roasting hers.

Someone…(Not me) got a sunrise shot.  I wasn’t up that early…after all this was a little get -a-way…time to sleep in? right? But here is the pretty sunrise..

All in all we had fun! We were so glad that Jana chose to come along. Our friends enjoyed her too and now she too has new friends here in Arizona.

Love, Jan
