We didn't pull out of the property until mid-morning and we didn't expect to travel any great distance. We traveled west to Tuscon into the land of the beautiful sagauro cactus. The desert continues to change but the magnificent mountains remain always along the horizon in the distance. The land is even more flat and there is little vegitation except for the succulents that I think are beautiful.
At Casa Grande we took the I-8 split to Yuma. The exits are few and far between in this part of Arizona. We stayed overnight at Augie's RV Park in Gila Bend. The campground was typical for the area. There's no grass or trees.

Arizona has spectacular sunsets!
We'd heard about the great numbers of retirees who RV into Yuma each winter but we were not prepared to see the unbelievable number of RV Parks! RVers are truly "catered to" in this area as all kinds of RV and camping services are advertised.
Our campground, Arizona Sands, is located in a growing area not far from Araby Road. The daytime temperatures are in the mid-70's and expected to go higher by weekend. Nights are in the 50's. We put away the winter wear.
