Today the crew and I leave what I’m calling the Congress Acres Camp.
It’s 9 a.m. Arizona time and almost everything is packed up and secured for the road. All I have to do is hitch up, lock up, pack up the exercise pen, and throw the crew onto their bench seat for the ride.
Where are we going?
First we’re going south about nine miles toward Wickenburg, then we’ll turn onto Highway 93 and head northwest. I’m excited not only because I love a new camp, but also because Highway 93 is also known as the Joshua Tree Parkway. I’ll see my first Joshua Tree!
More later . . .
I hope. If you don’t hear from me right away, it’s because my internet signal is not strong enough. Maybe I’ll lose cellphone coverage. Not to worry!
Talk to you later. Time to have some fun. Goodby Congress Acres Camp! I’ll be looking for the horses on the way out. I’d love to see a newborn foal . . . . sigh . . .
The crew and I found a beautiful boondock site overlooking Wikieup, a tiny village in a river valley southeast of Kingman, AZ. Although our camp is close to town, we are all by ourselves on a bluff with a lovely view of the valley and the mountains.
I’m trying to prepare a full report of our trip on the scenic highway (93) through the Joshua Tree Forest and how we managed to discover this quiet, secluded place. The internet signal is three bars but it drops occasionally. Plus Spike keeps barking at me to sit outside with him. (I’m not leaving the crew outside alone, even in their pen, until I’ve sized up the critter situation.)
I have several photos I want to share with you. In case I can’t get the writing and pics posted for you today, you at least know where we are and that we are all safe. There’s so much to tell. It’s been a full, exciting day!
