National and State Parks
Having visited Colossal Cave and a recent visit to Kartchner Caverns (both caves in Arizona), we were told Carlsbad Caverns is a must-see if we would be in New Mexico. Imagine a cavern over 1,000 feet deep, currently has about 30 miles of mapped passages and 119 known caves. Sold! It’s a natural wonder we have to witness for ourselves. (Illustration by: Julia Kuo)
You may recognize White Sands in the Movies – Young Guns II, Transformers, Transformers 2, Mad Love and Book of Eli (… the movies I’ve seen). We couldn’t pass through New Mexico without this pitstop only an hour from our RV Park.
Day 22 RVing: We’ve been driving 5 hours from Tucson to Las Cruces. We needed a much needed fun break.
Why visit the Grand Canyon? For activity junkies like us there’s the lure to hike, bike, mule ride, raft, whitewater, helicopter or experience land tours (bus, jeep or van). And, hello… how about just for its amazing landscape! Unfortunately, we had planned little time in the area and didn’t even know if the trip up would be doable. We’ve never been in Arizona for the winter and were worried about freezing weather… getting around in the RV.
Imagine your apartments right smack against a limestone cliff! This community was built about 800 years ago… talk about ingenuity for a desert backdrop! This morning, we’re in Camp Verde, AZ visiting the Montezuma Castle National Monument before going up to Williams, AZ where we look forward to Bearizona.
