The end of 2002 is almost
here, and we’re still reeling from all the events of the year. Our
travels were all in North America this year, we made great strides in genealogy
research, and our home on wheels gave us a few problems. Three offspring
moved into new homes, one became engaged, one was seriously injured, and
one is working on world records. Details follow.
and New Mexico
January found us enjoying family and friends in the Bay Area for a bit. We embarked on the adventure of towing a car behind our motorhome, so we had more baggage in exchange for more mobility. Quartzsite, Arizona and family in Tucson were our first stops of the year.
We spent February square dancing in Mesa, Arizona, where we stayed in a resort park and danced, and danced, and partied, and danced. We had a great time. We already knew lots of dancers who winter there and made more friends. The activities in this resort area abound, so we certainly kept busy.
After meeting with California
friends in Scottsdale for a few days, we visited
parts of Arizona, Mexico and New Mexico we hadn’t seen before. We
visited Saguaro National Park in Tucson. Toured Fort Huachuca
from where the army searched for the elusive Geronimo, and which is now
home of U.S. Army Intelligence Museum with some really cool things
in it–the 007 kind. Discovered the cities of Sierra Vista and Bisbee
then crossed the border into Nogales, Mexico. New Mexico afforded
us visits to the Gila Cliff Dwellings, the Catwalk of Whitewater Canyon
and the Chino Mines near Silver City. Las Cruces and White Sands
National Monument with its white gypsum dunes offered more new adventures.
