We spent the weekend at the Tucson Mountain Park taking in the sights at the Desert Museum, Saguaro National Park, and Gates Pass. We were also treated to a pretty colorful sunset which made for some great pics.

Mike:

Reading through and seeing your great photos reminds me when we last had anything close to warm weather here (8 months ago!).

Fabulous photos and great write-up!

Cheers,

*$3.26 a gallon for gas?? We're at $5.52 a gallon here (this is converted to US gallons, US dollar)-- and this has been the lowest price we've seen since last September!

Mike, Gilbert Ray is a great campground. Have camped there several times in the past.
I enjoyed seeing your pictures. Tucson is a great location at this time of year.
One thing I did notice in the picture of the rear of your camper was the steps attached and closed. Do you carry the steps that way when traveling? I was told by Torklift and Northwood that it was not recommended on our 20111-12 Wolf Creeks.

I always do. Never had a problem doing so.

Thanks for the report Mike. I've got the Gilbert Ray campground down on my list as a possible for when we pass through Tucson next month, so it was interesting to see your views.

While taking these pics I listened to last half of Days of Future Passed by the Moody Blues, the perfect soundtrack while taking in a spectacular sunset.


Your tastes seem to be in good order all the way around.

Wow silversand! $5.52 a gallon for gas would begin to make a VW Diesel Jetta with a rolled up tent strapped across the trunk look good. Guess it would be nice of me to haul a few hundred gallons of the cheap U.S. gas on my utility trailer up his way to him!

Thanks, Cal. Been a big fan since 1977.
