Pioneer Living History Village (Phoenix, AZ)

November 15, 2013 | 1

“…over 90 acres of an old 1800’s town…blacksmith shop, sheriff’s office and jail, to Victorian ladies… take a step back in time,” say the Pioneer Village website. It takes about 2 hours to walk around this Western town, including attending a short gunfight show. Our stroll in this dusty, desert landscape reminded me a lot of the TV series, Little House in the Prairie, I grew up watching.

Out of Africa Wildlife Park (Camp Verde, AZ)

November 14, 2013 |

4.5 of 5.0 stars on both TripAdvisor and Yelp. Not a zoo, you imagine yourself in the Serengeti as you tour areas of the park either on foot or by tram. The highlights of our visit were being kissed by a giraffe and camel, feeding tigers and petting a giant python, but also watching hyenas swallow their food whole and listening to the roars of the lions throughout the day.

Red Rock Scenic Byway (Sedona, Arizona)

November 11, 2013 | 2

We turned to page 278 of "Guide to Scenic Highways & Byways" by National Geographic which talked about how “Sand laid down about 300 million years ago became sandstone, tinted red by the presence of iron, then shaped by water and wind…” to what you see today. It’s only a short but sweet 7.5 mile scenic drive (Exit 298 to Hwy 179) of Red Rock country. We make an afternoon of it.

RV Park: Quail Ridge RV Park (Mayer, Arizona)

November 11, 2013 | 9

RV Day #9: Time to move from Capri RV Resort to Quail Ridge RV Park. We jumped on I-8E and have a 3-4 hour drive. With colder weather approaching, we had researched a good location to stay that wouldn’t have temperatures below freezing and would allow us to explore somewhat North Arizona with the Mini Cooper – Red Rocks of Sedona, Bearizona, Montezuma Castle, and the Grand Canyon.
