The state and regional parks in Arizona limit your stays to 14 days. Fortunately, Phoenix has a number of outstanding parks. We hooked up the Tincan and moved over to Usery Mountain Regional Park.
The park offers 29 miles of biking and hiking trails. Most are easy to navigate.
We continue to enjoy our prickly environment.

There are a number of excellent art galleries in Phoenix. The Heard Museum specializes in showcasing the arts and cultures of the Native people of the Americas. The exhibit that caught our eye was “Yua: Henri Matisse and the Inner Arctic Spirit”. The exhibit featured works by Matisse and the Native Alaskan masks that inspired him. The show included works never exhibited in the US.
The museum’s has a wonderful sculpture garden and a collection of Kachina Dolls once owned by Barry Goldwater.
We abandoned the Tincan in Phoenix for a few days to visit family in Chicago.
Shelly’s sister and her husband also live in Chicago and were kind enough to have us stay with them. They live downtown in a high rise with a view.
Back in Phoenix we had the pleasure of meeting up with two couples, full time RVers, who we follow through their wonderful blogs. Amanda and Tim of Watson Wanders http://watsonwanders.com/ and Laurel and Eric of Raven and Chickadee https://ravenandchickadee.com/
Both of these blogs are excellent and over our years of travel we have gotten a wealth of information from them.
Back at camp we enjoyed one last hike and more of those Phoenix sunsets.
Next up Southern California.
