head west old man!

I could get used to these camping trips at least once a month, almost quenching my thirst for a repeat of our 2019 trip. Even getting 20 miles out of town is a welcome change! We went dry camping with four other couples south of Queen Valley which is about 20 miles east of Apache Junction, AZ. Great sunsets, a view of city lights, really quiet out here in the desert at night and great time playing games and enjoying a campfire each night. We brought the Jeep again to go riding with friends that brought their side by side UTVs. Tacos Friday night, Steak and baked potatoes Saturday night, burgers, dogs and Steak Fries Sunday night. Breakfast was such a feast, we didn’t even eat lunch each day as planned. Not sure of the destination but we have another trip in the works for sometime in March, can’t wait!

I think Charlotte scored?

The desert is awesome in the winter (when it’s below 90)
