This was a Grand site to see as we entered Arizona….
We took the Phoenix Bypass at Casa Grande, taking I-8 to Hwy 85 in Gila Bend, then back up to I-10. At exit 103, we turned north to Wickenburg and on up to North Ranch. This route avoids the traffic through Phoenix. We arrived yesterday shortly after lunch.
I just love this cut across.....it’s a little curvy and wavy but it is beautiful. It brings you into Wickenburg from the south on Vulture Peak road.
It takes you right by Vulture Peak....Ms. Pat snapped a picture as we passed. There is a nice boon docking area just off the road at the base of the Mountain. We have hiked to the top many times with several of our friends and look forward to doing it again. This Peak can be seen from our lot at North Ranch. Hey, "geocachers", there is a local "cache" on the top put there by the Chamber of Commerce!
This sign pretty much describes the road but it is an easy trip and the road is excellent…
You can just “inhale” all the beauty, which is just what I am doing as the Foretravel Motorhome easily traverses the curves and small hills…….
Even before we get to Wickenburg, you can see North Ranch where we live way off in the distance (where I placed the +). It is a good 12-15 miles away. You can see we are way out in the boonies, which is what we love!
Soon we arrived at North Ranch. Ms. Pat and I are both anxious to see our home that we left nearly 6 months ago……..
We pulled up in front of the place and unhooked our pickup. I backed the Foretravel into it's spot and immediately took this picture, even before we went inside. WOW, doesn’t the place look good? Look how the trees have filled out since we cut them back last year and Gina, your rock gardens look wonderful. All the solar lights even work.
We are so glad to be here and to find the place in such good shape. Thanks to our great friends and neighbors Paul and Nancy for looking after it for us……
Now we have a ton of work to do!! Ms Pat is already started and I better get to helping her….
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!! It’s going to be a GREAT WINTER!!
Thanks for riding along with us and if your in the area, be sure to stop by or give us a shout….
We are ever so Thankful to our Father in Heaven for continuing to place his blessings on us….
See ya Sunday.
