We were all packed and hitched up ready to go just after 10:30 this morning. It was another gorgeous travel day...blue sky and sunshine...we certainly don’t get tired of that!
We weren’t quite sure where to stay in the Parker area, so we started with the La Paz County Campground. They were full but we could pull into the overflow section or the group site...both were just big open gravel parking lots. Gee...do you think our luck could have been such that there would be an open site big enough for us right on the river front?? Ha...no way...oh well. So we continued on to Buckskin Mountain State Park. They were also full but she had called ahead and their sister park, River Island State Park, only a couple of miles further down the highway had some sites available. So, off we went.
Whew...it was hot as we set up! BUT...we are not complaining! So much of the past 8 months has been in cloud and cold/coolness that we are just lapping up all this lovely heat...mid to high 80’s! After we got all set up, including the satellite, we sat outside in what little shade we had in the late afternoon and enjoyed a cool drink. This really is a lovely spot. The campground is nestled between mountains right on the Colorado River...just beautiful! California is on the other side of the river.
A nice site, beautiful weather, no problem getting the satellite signal...what could be better??! Oh yeah...there is absolutely no internet or cell signal...drats! Ok...life is “almost” good! I probably can’t get a signal because of the mountains...oh well...so much for getting our travel blog up-to-date while here!
