We’re back in Arizona, Cottonwood to be exact, at the Thousand Trails Verde Valley preserve. Since San Diego to Cottonwood is a long drive we broke our trip in two and decided to stay at Pleasant Harbor RV Park in Peoria, AZ (just northwest of Phoenix). It is a really nice park and marina on Lake Pleasant, our friends Ron & Marilyn are currently staying there so we got to visit with them. As a matter of fact they decided to come up to Cottonwood and are camping next door to us this weekend!

While we were at Lake Pleasant Ron took Dave & I on a ride in the desert in their Polaris… what fun! I love the desert landscape and this was an exciting way to see it. Besides photos of the RV park I’ve included a little video of our desert ride…

Ok, now that's a nice campground. Knowing Phoenix and how stinking hot it is, I think even I could stay at this one. Love the hillbilly music with the 4-wheelin video.

Hi Lisa,

Yep, it is a beautiful park! The lake is so pretty. Hehe... I thought that music went well with zippin' around in a 4-wheeler!
