We Have Landed

Our spot in the Kartchner Caverns State Park has no traffic or train noise and it is dark!  We pulled in here around 10am, got the car all cleaned up from its journey of yesterday trying to find boondocking spots and then headed off to Tombstone to see friends Linda and Jim.  We met Jim and Linda many years ago while participating in Cowboy Action Shooting.  They were full time RVers until last winter when they purchased a home in Tombstone.  It is an older home and they have done a fabulous job of restoring the inside and of furnishing and decorating.  I love the furniture Linda and Jim bought—wouldn’t that be fun to purchase a whole house full of furniture??  They have a small enclosed courtyard protected from the wind and we sat out there enjoying the warm sunshine before heading off to an early dinner in Tombstone.  We were entertained by a cardinal couple using the bird bath.

This area is at a much higher elevation than the Bouse/Quartzsite area from where we came.  I think Sierra Vista and Tombstone are right at 4000 feet and as a result it is much colder here.  Jim and Linda have had snow 4 times this winter, just a dusting, but snow.  A cold wind was blowing this morning but it did warm up nicely this afternoon.  This is an incredibly beautiful area but we don’t think we want to be cold in the winter, we can be cold in Montana!

Huachuca Mtns Snow on the Huachuca Mountains outside Sierra Vista.  We drove down toward Sonoita today and had a quick lunch at a deli there—also beautiful country but 5000 feet elevation. 

We are now all tucked in for the night, nice and cozy!  Emmi has been walked and we are all ready to call it a night and get some sleep after the last two near sleepless nights.  It was a great day!
