Yuma

After juggling around our travel schedule, and bypassing Lake Havasou, we ended up in Yuma AZ the day before Thanksgiving.   Thats what you do when your full timing, you adapt and improvise.  We didn't really do anything while we were there.  We had plans of going to the historical territorial prison, and doing some paddle boarding, but that didnt happen.  We spent the better part of our time there getting settled into the new house. 

Benson

In our search for places to stay while in the area, we ran into the problem of most of the parks being age restricted.  Unfortunally for us, this time of year in this area really caters to the snowbirds.  We found a place that fits our budget, in Benson AZ.  Its about 30 min east of Tucson.   We pulled in about 30 min before a pot luck was starting so we threw some food in the instant pot and made it just in the nick of time.  We are the only people in this park with kids, but were welcomed right in.  We even ran into a couple that we have seen in a couple other parks along the way starting back at Klamath River in Northern California a couple months ago.

Tombstone

Branded the town too tough to die.  We visited the old west town, and saw the places that history was written.  Unfortunately its one big tourist trap.  We did enjoy ourselves though, the people that worked there were in era clothing, and really tried to fit the parts.  We got to see where the Earps lived (and got shot) and where Doc Holidays office was.  Overall it was pretty cool.  We went to a gun fight re-enactment and walked around the old western town.

Saguaro National Park

This national park is home to some pretty cool big Cacti.  The district we visited, is on the eastern edge of Tucson.  We visited the Cactus Forest, and did a ranger lead hike to an old copper mine.  The high desert is full of cool vegetation and rock formations.
