Downhill a Little to Camp Verde

The RTR group that I was parked with moved to Camp Verde, and I decided to go with them. Jo and I first went to see Montezuma Castle.

Southern Sinagua farmers built this five-story, 20-room dwelling sometime between 1100 and 1300 AD.

It occupies a cliff recess 100 feet above the valley.

While we were wandering around, we came upon this huge Black-Tailed Rattlesnake. The ranger there said something about it being released recently. Seems odd to me to release a rattlesnake in a tourist attraction!

The WINs were parked nearby, so I did some activities with them also. One day we went to the old mining town of Jerome.

I think they are trying to raise money for the town by encouraging you to throw coins into these toilets!

Rosemary and I made a hot new friend.

Back at the RTR, Barbara (of Me and My Dog... and My RV) and I went to visit Tuzigoot, an nearby Sinagua village built between 1000 and 1400 AD.

The original pueblo was two stories high in places, with 87 ground-floor rooms.



  2. Tell Barbara that it's time for her to post again. I think that snake needs to go much further out into the desert.

  3. Geeez...I sure wouldn't want to meet up with this monster snake. Great to see all these dwellings from way back.

  4. Didn't know you were a hunk-a hunk-a hunk of burning love! :cD

  5. You guys were at the RTR this year? So was I! I would have enjoyed meeting you in person. Maybe soon.


I love comments!
