On the way from Yuma to Apache Junction, a good place to stop is at the Gila Bend Elks. You don't have to be an Elk to stay here for a $5 donation.
But the main reason I'm here is that Phil is getting initiated into the Elks. There were 17 inductees, of which 16 were RVers. In addition to Phil, there were 3 other WINs, Claudia, Bill, and Trisha. Since I'm already an Elk, I got to watch the initiation. This was the celebration afterwards.
Just after we got to Apache Junction, Phil's cat Yellow died. Her sister Grey had died here last year, so we wanted to bury them together under the Superstition Mts. It was hard to find where Grey was, but we finally did.
Near AJ is a great flea market, the Mesa Marketplace. I love to shop but don't buy much. I liked this sweatshirt, but it's more of a guy thing.
And there were some cute signs.
This one raised some interesting questions. If you don't remember these things, are you too young or too old??? I know my memory is fading.
I got to visit my sister Barbara in Mesa and see the house she and Ron bought last year.
Phil took the opportunity to gather some oranges and grapefruit.
We all went out to Friday's for dinner, but the only picture I got was of the cheesecake dessert. Yummy!
Leaving town you could see the results of the big storms. This road was totally under water.
