Arizona desert

Well we got the problem with our RV fixed in Las Vegas and decided to head to Arizona and get out of the city and away from all those night lights. We found an Arizona State RV park about 10 miles from Parker Arizona. We set up camp and spent several days looking around the surrounding area.

One of our day trips was 30 miles out into the desert and here are some of the views of the area. One of the areas we drove through had huge cacti growing all over the place.

This gives you an idea of the size of most of them. Jackie was ready to give it a big hug.

That is until you get a closer look at all those sharp needles.

Another area was full of this type of cacti; it must be about 10' tall.

And a closer look showes the leaves and very hard and sharp needles.

This guy was about 5' tall.

Just an unusual rock formation that we ran across.

To be continued...

So glad she didn't hug that cactus. She's one smart lady!
