Moving Up the Hill

After my stay in Apache Junction, I headed up the hill to Prescott Valley when the temperatures got too high. I stayed at the Elks Lodge, and this was my gorgeous view of Fain Park below me.

It's a great park to walk around. There are trails around the lake and off into the brush.

It's a small lake, and the dam that forms it is an easy walk.

There were some cute little critters on the other end of the dam.

There's a beautiful waterfall on the other side of the lake.

I wondered where the water comes from, but I found out when I walked up behind it.

There's also some cool "rusty stuff," mining equipment from a long time ago.

Back on the trail around the lake, I made new friend, a Great Blue Heron. We kept our social distancing...

One day, my long-time friend, Sally, who lives nearby, came over to the park for lunch and talking. She invited me too, and I had a great time. It's nice to see people for a change...

Back at camp, this 5-foot long snake came slithering through under our RVs one evening. He wasn't poisonous, and was amazing to watch. He moved pretty fast!

It's hard to come up with things to write about in these trying times, but this is my best effort...


  1. A bullsnake! A friend to us all except rodents and rattlesnakes.

  2. I cant tell the difference between a good snake and a dangerous one so I avoid them all. It definitely is HOT down here in the valley.

  3. Hey sweet girl sure miss you I’m glad you’re having a good time and I’d love to hear about any places that you stay. Next winter will be my first winter out on the road by myself and outside of a park so anything you can share with regards,I would love and I will look at the rest of your post.


I love comments!
