Ajo to Yuma, Arizona
Blue Sky RV Resort
Distance: 146 miles
Duration: 1 night
Weather: Cloudy and warm
We decided to skip a day trip to the Organ Pipe National Monument since I didn't feel like driving anywhere and Rod had to work on an editing project. So, I took advantage of our time at the Shadow Ridge RV Park and did a few loads of laundry, worked on editing some photos from our trip to the Grand Canyon, caught up on social media and did a little reading. Later that evening, while sitting on the couch, I though I heard rain, but not on the roof. Huh? I couldn't figure it out, so I poked my head outside of the RV. There were at least a dozen javelinas walking straight toward me. Freaked me out! I'm not sure what they would do, but I wasn't going to find out. Glad we hadn't planned to grill outside.
Not the prettiest RV park, but at least it was quiet.
The next morning we continued to make our way west toward San Diego. After gassing up in Gila Bend, we hopped on I-8 and headed to Yuma. It was an uneventful, albeit boring drive with a little wind, but nothing terrible. We arrived at the Blue Sky RV Resort, which is not much of a resort compared to some others we've visited.
Blue Sky has level sites (gravel), with full hookups, a pool, club house, laundry, showers, etc. Looks like there are a lot of full-time residents and eventually snowbirds. No picnic table or fire ring, but it was too warm to spend much time outside. Thank goodness for our air conditioning!
Not the most beautiful site, but for one night it was fine.
The park is fairly close to the Marine Corp. Air Station, so there was a bit of noise as the helicopters flew directly over us. Thankfully, they stopped before midnight!
Another gorgeous sunset!
