It's hard to believe that almost a month has gone by since my last post.
Since then we've visited Phoenix, Sedona, and now are in Palm Springs, Ca.
But I'm getting ahead of myself....
In Phoenix we stayed at one of our mainstays... Lake Pleasant Park.
I've covered Lake Pleasant many times so I wont go into it here again,
but we did have a great time here with Rob and Pat.
The Hummingbirds loved visiting Pats feeder and put on a show for us
each night at Happy Hour.
sometimes we even had a twin pack
We went for a Saturday afternoon visit to Cave Creek and had lunch at El Encanto.
Its a quirky place with a pond, gardens, and a whole Oasis in the Desert
thing going on.
Its March in Phoenix and that means Spring Training!
As usual our time flew by and soon we headed north to Cottonwood, Az where
we stayed in Dead Horse Ranch State Park.
This is a central location to visit Sedona, Prescott, and the nearby Native American ruins.
Tuzigoot National Monument is one of the ruins which is a remnant of a vast
Native American Civilization that spanned this area of the country.
About 20 miles east of Tuzigoot is Montezumas Castle National Monument.
No visit to Cottonwood would be nearly complete without a visit to Sedona.
The Red Rock Country here is just beautiful.
We took a few hikes with the dogs who attracted attention everywhere they went.
Cottonwood was our place to say good-bye to Rob and Pat who would be heading
back north to Canada.
A delicious meal of Roast Beet with Yorkshire Pudding prepared by R&P was enjoyed by all.
Then we were off preparing for the next leg of our adventure.
We have an appointment in Redlands, Ca on Monday to have an alignment check/adjustment
performed on the bus, so enroute we stopped in Palm Springs which is only an hour away
We spent 4 nights living the luxury lifestyle at the Motorcoach Country Club.

Each night at Happy Hour the "fleet" takes to the canals for cocktail cruises.

Its now Sunday and time to cross over to Redlands.
Redlands Truck & RV has their own RV Park so we will spend tonight there
in anticipation of our 7am appointment tomorrow morning.
After we get finished in Redlands it will be east to Casa Grande for a few nights,
then 10 nights in Catalina State Park where we'll take care of last minute details prior
to our dash to the east coast and the start of our next BIG ADVENTURE!
Stay tuned... in May we will be Kicking it up a Notch!
