We are at the Datastorm Rally in Tucson

We are really enjoying the Datastorm Rally in Tucson. There are over 120 rv's here with datastorm dishes on them. It is truly the 'city of blue lights'.

It's Windy in Palm Springs!

On Oct. 15th, we left Yosemite Lakes and drove down to TT Soledad Canyon for a couple of nights. That's near Palmdale, CA. The park is huge and nice. We found a dog park in Lancaster and got to let the dogs run for a while. They loved chasing tennis balls.

Today, we drove to TT Palm Springs. The wind is blowing at 35mph with gusts in some areas up to 50 mph!! It's supposed to die down tonight. We are heading to Apache Junction, AZ tomorrow and then to Tucson to the Datastorm Rally there.

In Awe of the Giant Sequoias

On Tuesday, we drove to the Mariposa Grove and took the tram ride around the grove. It was just awesome.

We couldn't get too close to the trees; they have determined that walking too close will damage their roots, so it was hard to get a photo with any perspective.

This was taken on the way back to the motorhome as the sun was setting.

Yesterday, we hiked to the Tuolumne Grove. There are about 20 sequoias there and it was a beautiful day and nice to be out.

This is one of the 'tunnel' trees. That's me standing in it.

The colors are starting to change. This is Gerald standing next to a sequoia that fell in 1983.

Visiting Manteca and Almond groves

On Oct 1, we went to TT Turtle Beach in Manteca, CA. This was a nice park and we got a great site. We have some friends with an almond grove and enjoyed visiting them and watching the harvesting of the almonds.

On Oct 5, we drove to TT Yosemite Lakes. It was raining and sleeting when we arrived so we didn't do much the first day. Yesterday, we drove into the park and went to the visitor's center.

Wildlife: so far, we have only seen several deer.
