My Yard

We have lived here 30 yrs. I planted these azaleas in the island in front about 15 yrs ago. They were just sticks when I planted them.
This is the first year since I planted them 15 yrs. ago that they have all been in full bloom along with the dogwoods. I'm convinced that it is because we are trying to sell the house and they are beautiful just to spite me! They are in luck a new family wants to rent them so they are safe for another year.

After Big Bend

March 28-30

We made our next stop at Big Bend National Park. Unfortunately my new camera broke and we were 200 miles from the nearest Sam's or Costco or from anything, so no pictures! I did get a few pictures of the campground we stayed at just outside the park. It was called Stillwell Ranch RV. The campround is on a ranch that consist of several thousand acres and is still a working ranch. It is still owned by the grandchildren of Hallie Stillwell. That is "Nan" in the red shirt. She runs the campground/store/gift shop/museum/and sometimes diner, plus helps with the ranch. She opened the museum that night for entertainment and storytelling.

She's quite a storyteller and the museum is dedicated to her grandmother. She also makes a mean bean burrito. They even have a song about it!

Marfa, Tx Mar. 24

Overnite stop in Marfa, Tx to see the Mystery Lights. These lights have appeared since the early 1800's. They have been recorded by Indians and early settlers. The settlers thought they were Indian campfires in the distance. The lights seem to change colors and move. No explanation has been found to really say what they are.
We watched in amazement at them as we boondocked in the parking area. The lights would go out and come back on in different spots until dawn. Yes, I awoke just as it was getting light and one light was still there,but it went out suddenly as the sun came up!! Camera broke (again) so no pics.

Safford, Az March 21-23

Boondocker group all went for a 4-wheeler trip back in the mtns. to see some of the wildflowers and scenery. The california poppies were just beginning to bloom and the mtns were aglow with bright yellow patches.

Safford, Az was a stop for a few days on the way back east. Found a great boondocking spot. Only one problem, so did the Escapee Boondockers club. There was about 15 or so rigs there so we just joined them. We now also belong to that club!

This is catch-up time for my blog so the date for this picture will be Mar.21-23.
