Feb 26, 2015 - Rio del Sol RV

Feb.21-Went to the Boat races. Drag racing on water. Watched ski-doos & big block engine boats races. Nice day until the wind came up, so we never did see who actually won! The days seem to be going so quickly what with visiting & happy hours daily. Played shuffleboard for the first time in a tournament & actually finished in third place!Interesting watching the river as the level fluctuates over the day. Reserved 3 nights at Congress,Az. to meet Steve & Jeannie. Had several cool,windy days but temps have been in the mid to high 70's.

Dec 9, 2011 - Parker, AZ & Big River, CA

After leaving Wickenburg, we continued along Route 60 and then Route 72 to Parker, AZ on the Colorado River. We were a little surprised (but shouldn't have been) with the huge crop fields on both sides of 72.
