Travel requires good planning! When we decide where we’re headed Chuck researches the routes and driving times and plans the fuel and RV park stops. Critical to our planning is checking what the weather looks like – both short and long term. He looks at most destinations on the satellite view of Apple Maps ensuring there are no surprises (like we don’t fit). I research the ‘fun stuff’ which usually determines our length of stay. Our planning requires both an “A” and “B” plan with lots of flexibility, especially when weather is the concern.
You can’t come to Vegas and not visit the Hoover Dam, marvel at the newly constructed bridge and walk the Strip – and we did all that – including visiting with family that we specifically came here for. We’ve now left Vegas and are in Quartzsite, AZ after some weekend excitement in Lake Havasu City, AZ. We’re then heading to Yuma and a little cross border shopping in Mexico.
National Geographic names this park as 1 of 300 Best Drives in the U.S. Ever since I read about this location in other RV blogs it was on my “go to” list and we were not leaving Vegas until we explored it!
The park is located in the Mojave Desert approximately 50 miles Northeast of the Las Vegas strip.
It’s sad leaving this wonderful RV resort in Indio that we have been in for 3 weeks – a fabulous location, great weather, friendly and outgoing people, plenty of activities to keep us busy all day, new friends and stories to tell.
But, it’s the draw of the open road, the anticipation of the next location, the marvel of new sights and landscapes and meeting people from all over Canada and the USA that are so exciting and sweet!
