I have been coming to Yuma every Christmas/New Years for a long time now, and I think this is the warmest weather we've ever had! The temperatures have been in the upper 70s - WOW! The BLM land behind the VFW is a popular spot.
The only downside is that big yellow thing on the left, but what the heck - I love trains!
New Year's morning we all came out in our PJs.
I was the Belle of the Ball in my Winnie-the-Pooh PJs and my Tigger friend. Who would have thought that I would get so much use out of these PJs?
After our Yuma gathering, we moved over to Wellton to Kurt's gathering.
It's a really nice spot, where you can walk along the canal -
Until this guy comes by and sprays water all over you...
After the heavy rain that we had one day last month, the desert looks like it has been spray-painted green.
Once again, Kurt took us on a trip into the Barry Goldwater Range. You have to get a free permit in Yuma, and sign your life away, to enter the range.
You have to agree to:
Detonations from falling objects
Live bombs, rockets, etc.
Lack of water, food
Etc, etc, etc....
And believe it or not, we found a rocket!
And a whole lot of beautiful scenery - more on this later!
