Seeking Warmer Night

You know how it is, if you’re not warm you move to a new place looking for a warmer spot.  That’s what we’ve been doing.  While in Casa Grande (pronounced casa grandee) it was getting down into the 30’s at night so off we went looking for warmer nights.  

We spent our first night near Gila (pronunciation help,  g sounds like h, so gila is heela) Bend at Petroglyph Painted Rock campground.  What a great place, quiet, dark at night and not many people.  But still cold at night.

On the way in we passed the Solana Generation Station.  

We only spent one night there as it was 37 degrees that night, on to warmer climes.  We ventured down to Yuma, only 3 hours south but lower in elevation which translates to warmer nights.  We are dry camping near Mittry Lake outside of Yuma.  Our first night, saturday of the thanksgiving weekend, right next to the dirt road, with about 2 dozen off road vehicles running up and down all day long. They were all gone by sunday afternoon. 

Yuma is all about growing vegetables, every kind of lettuces, broccoli, oranges, lemons and grapefruit, and dates.  


These last two pictures were taken out our door.

My winter garden, Paperwhites on the left and hyacinth on right.

I'll be back soon.

  1. You two are similar to lizards. Always looking for a warm spot.

    Your garden is terrific. Soon should sweetly smell your entire home.

    Can you find any hot springs?
