On The Road Again

We’ve spent the last three weeks in three different Retirement Communities in Mesa, Arizona. While they were all great resorts with lots of amenities and activities and loads of friendly people we have decided we just are not ready for long-term resort living yet. So off we go….

We have moved 90 miles southeast to Catalina State Park just north of Tucson. We have paid for two nights only, for now.

The sun was getting low but we decided to take a little hike before it got dark. The Romero Ruin Trail was close to the campground so that’s where we went. This was an easy desert hike through an area that includes almost 1,500 years of history. With several interpretive signs explaining about the ancient Hohokum village that used to be here, and the more recent house Mexican rancher Francisco Romero built in the mid 1800’s. Romero’s ranch and his cattle were often the target of Apache raids.

This park includes an equestrian center and riding trails. If only we had a horse.

Now we don’t know how long this has been like this, we did not hear any unusual sounds, but something we need to get fixed. Looks like this will be our project for tomorrow.
