With rising temperatures - into the mid-80's, these past couple of days - we took full advantage to motorcycle and to hike the local areas.
|The old bridge crossing from downtown Yuma to the old Fort Yuma area.|
|Old Fort Yuma area.|
|Squaw Lake - North from the Imperial Dam|
|Squaw Lake RV site - no services (dry camping only)|
|Dock area at Squaw Lake|
|Sherman tank @ Yuma (army) Proving Grounds.|
|M-103 Combat tank - with 120 mm gun|
The M-103 is one large and ominous tank and with a powerful gun too.
|M-107 175 mm Self Propelled Howitzer|
|Tank driver likely painted this moniker on his Sherman tank|
|One of several large homes in our Yuma Foothills area.|
|No shortage of desert plant life in the Foothills.|
|No wind - The US flag is at rest.|
|Love the mountains that surround Yuma|
Before that though, we'll spend a few hours readying our fiver for tomorrow's journey. A final walk in the area will close off the day till we head for dinner. The motorcycle has to be loaded and strapped down on the swivel wheel, and all the other stuff that RVers need to look after will get done too. We'll only have to hitch up and stow a few things before rolling out tomorrow.
|Palm trees are numerous on home sites|
We thoroughly enjoy the numerous palm trees that dot this area.
|Nice entrance to a wash near us.|
