Faywood, New Mexico to Willcox, Arizona
Grande Vista RV Park
Distance: 165 miles
Duration: 1 night
Weather: Humid and stormy
We woke to a cloudy morning with a storm brewing off in the distance. After checking the weather report, it looked like we were in for some wind and thunderstorms on our drive west. I walked around the park before breakfast, feeling sad that we had to leave such a cool campground. One more day would have been nice.
Another pretty view out our bedroom window.
Here comes the sun!
We hit the road before 10:00 and it was very windy! We saw lots of signs along the highway, warning of high winds and dust storms. We only had to travel 165 miles, but it was a stressful drive. We stopped for some beef jerky, but the rest of the drive was pretty boring (when I wasn't terrified of being blown off the road!).
Pretty ominous clouds in the rear view mirror.
Welcome to Arizona!
Dust beginning to blow on the left side of the highway.
Thankfully, we didn't have to worry about anyone slamming into the back of us in a dust storm! Phew.
Getting closer to San Diego!
We arrived at the RV park mid-afternoon and didn't do much of anything other than relax and read. The sky got very dark, but we only had a few sprinkles, although the temperature dropped quite a bit, which was nice.
Grande Vista RV Park isn't anything special, especially for $40 a night. Full-hookups, level gravel pads, showers, laundry, WiFi, picnic tables, but not terribly attractive. Good for an overnight, but I wouldn't want to stay any longer.
