Our stay at Thousand Trails Verde Valley continues to be very enjoyable. Today we decided to find the Verde River that flows by the campground. It isn’t visible from where we are parked but you can hear it splashing by. To get to the river you have to go out of the campground through a walk-through gate and then do a little walking though some weeds, over rocks and past the trees. Not far and it was nice to finally see the river.
The days are certainly getting shorter. In the evening we enjoy sitting outside but we have started using our fire-pit as it is getting noticeably cooler too. The park remains busy and we have met a number of really nice people that are passing through on their way south.
