Saguaro Nat'l. Park

Posted by on January 31, 2010

The ride from Deming to Tucson was the longest leg of the journey so far. We got an early start but still have been sticking to our Rule of 350. That’s no more than 350 miles in a day or off the road by 3:50 in the afternoon, whatever comes first. We found a campground a mere quarter of a mile off I-10 just minutes before Tucson. Cactus Country RV Resort was a welcome respite from the wintry winds of Deming. This spot wasn’t planned, having found it on the net prior to this leg of the journey. It was very well maintained, clean, a great pool, and well manicured sites. It’s a park that I’ll visit again and would recommend it highly. It honors Passport America discounts except in the winter season but the $34 dollar price was well worth the amenities. We really didn’t want to have to unhook the trailer and they allowed us to pull through two sites while only charging us fee for one. Donna was a most gracious host at the office and I can’t enough good things about their hospitality. This place gets an A rating and I recommend it highly.
Soon after we anchored down we hopped in the truck and heading for Saguaro National Park. It was a short three mile ride from the campgound. I won’t bore you with commentary on the park. I’ll allow you to enjoy the show, the photos will do all the talking that’s needed. Several hours through the park loop provided a great day.  By the time we finished, evening was upon us and back to the rig to grill some ribeyes. Today’s 60 degree temps were a far cry from the freezing conditions of Deming early this morning.
