Fun, Fun Fun!!

Fun, Fun Fun!!

Friday, October 5 - 2 Travel Days (Gold Canyon, AZ)


Yesterday we left Monument Valley around 10am, traveled 194 miles and stopped in Munds Park, AZ for the night. Seems like a nice park. We got a water/electric site for $32.00.

Today we left about 9:30am. Again we traveled without incident (165 miles) and arrived at Gold Canyon RV Golf Resort about 12:30pm. Keep in mind we are in Mountain time, but they do not have daylight savings time.


We went to the Guest Services (Multi Purpose Building) to check in. Check in was very easy, we had to sign a few papers and received our auto passes, laundry card, gate entry card and a large packet of information.

We were then escorted to site #58.


It’s a back-in site and Jesse had no problem getting us parked. I will take more pictures to post tomorrow.

I was more interested in getting things set up. While Jesse did the outside things I got busy and scrubbed the whole RV floor on hands and knees. The floor really needed it. 

One thing that really was surprising, I was trying to fill the boys water bowl but could not get cool water, only warm water. I had to put ice cubes to cool it down.

After traveling for the last 3 weeks it’s nice that everything is where it’s suppose to be. We will be here until late December so I am really happy to be settled.

By the time I got all that done it was 4:00 and I need a shower. When taking my shower I was able to use only the cold water faucet as the water was warm.

Jesse took the boys to the dog park while waiting for me to get dressed.

We drove around the park a little and I took this picture of an egret in a pond behind the Multi Purpose Building.


We decided to go to Garcia’s for dinner which is in Mesa about 25 minutes from the park.

We had a wonderful dinner and drinks.



When we came out of the restaurant at 6:30 it was dark outside. Not too happy about that, but not much I can do about it.

We are in for the night and just relaxing, computering and watching TV.

Yea Orioles!! they move on to the play-offs.

Those pictures at Garcias made my mouth water. We'll be on the way to join you in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to being there, and to seeing your pictures of the sites in the park.
I guess the sites are large enough for "Happy Hour".
priorities, you know! LOL
Hugs to both of you,
E & M

While we were in Mesa in July the cold water would almost burn you!! Never did need the water heater.. Kinda makes washing in cold water a problem though...

That's what you get when the water pipes are just deep enough to be out of sight. We stayed in this park in 2010 and love it. We'll be there again next March.
