Where are we now?
K&N RV Park, Huachuca City, AZ
Overcome by the hitch-itch and being tired of the ever-present dust clouds surrounding our travel trailer in the RV Park, we opted to move on to new adventures last Saturday. I have to say that although the Pilot Knob RV Park was very nice and the warm, above average temperatures in the area were a plus, we felt like being at central station with the barrage of new arrivals and departures that had been churning up the dust while traversing by our site all day long since the RV show in Quartzsite closed. Yuma had been a great city for all of our shopping needs and I’ll be missing the Albertson’s grocery store.
First we headed east on I-8 and then onto I-10 where on long stretches the landscape is speckled with saguaro cactuses. For us Canadians it is an amazing sight because we don’t have those back home. Those cactuses can grow to great heights, apparently to over 40 feet tall, but I haven’t spotted one that tall yet.
Our destination was the "K&N RV Park" in Whetstone, part of Huachuca City, Arizona. This little gem of a traveler’s heaven is tucked away off Arizona State Route 82, passed the intersection of Hwy 90. It is a small park with views of mountains all around no matter which way you look. The park is filled up to 75% and the sites are spacious with gravel, the roads are paved, there are picnic tables everywhere with a few BBQ areas, horseshoe pits and two fenced-in dog parks. There is free wifi throughout the park. The only sounds we hear are the birds chirping in the trees.
Opposite the entrance, at the end of the three laneways is a gate and beyond is the estate of the park’s owners. The office is located in what looks like a funky, old style Shell Gas Station from the days when a pack of cigarettes cost 10 cents and a gallon of gasoline was 26.9 cents! The owner is a collector for antiques and the outside of the building as well as the office/reception are furnished with authentic pieces of years gone by, very unique and beautiful to look at.
Our two doxies sure love the freedom of running around in the dog park without their leashes. Can you tell?
Four years ago we were here in the area but in a differed RV Park for a couple of months and we really liked the many attractions this region has to offer. There are some, which we didn’t get to visit, and some we may want to revisit, so stay tuned to see what we are up to next.
