Verde Valley RV Resort, Cottonwood, AZ - November 19, 2016

We have driven all over the western part of the US, and we enjoy trying out a new route and seeing some new sights. Upon leaving the Lake Mead area, we headed towards Kingman, AZ on highway 93. After passing by Hoover Dam, we were on a new road for us. It was a good road, just typical Arizona mountains and desert.

Once on Interstate 40, it was up, up, and up. Quite a climb. At Ash Fork, we headed south on highway 89, a new route for us too. Through Prescott and north on Interstate 17, and we were at the Verde Valley Thousand Trails resort just outside of Cottonwood. It was a 269 mile drive day. This is our 42nd (our of 59) Thousand Trails park we have camped at. This completes WA, OR, CA, NV, AZ, and MI. We have half of Ohio and most of Texas completed also.

Here is my walkabout of the park.

The entrance and check in station.

Down the road to one of the 4 camping areas.

This is Section B, kinda of a 'park' setting.

The Pool Lodge and pool.

And the mini golf.

The Main Lodge, by us in Section H.

This is some shots of Section H where we landed.

Here we are, in Space H 79.

This is our new fire pit.

Beautiful scenery in the area. Temps are around 75 during the day, and down to 30 at night. Glad we have hookups here.

Time to explore the area tomorrow.
