I spend a lot of time in Yuma every winter, it seems, so it's hard to find anything new to write about. I'm parked on this tiny popular piece of BLM land next to the VFW. Next to the highway and the railroad tracks, it doesn't seem too attractive, but it has its advantages. The trains are fun to watch, and there doesn't seem to be as many of them this year. Is this a sign of the economy?
Another fun thing to watch are the hummingbirds..
And every weekend, the local paintball enthusiasts gather to shoot it out amongst the multi-colored trees.
Each year their setup gets more elaborate.
There's dancing almost every afternoon at the VFW. This VFW post is rather odd, in that it is a 3-sided building, open on one end for tables, dancing, and train-watching.
You can run over to Algodones, Mexico for huge margaritas, and inexpensive drugs. Oooops, I mean medicine. I stocked up for the whole year.
The downside of going to Mexico is the long line to get back into the US, but it seems better this year -- only 30-45 minutes. And the Mexicans have built a nice canopy to shade the line.
Back home, we're treated to a gorgeous sunset.
