Jeanette and I can hardly believe that we have been in Gold Canyon for seven days since leaving Yuma.
|Superstition Mountain from the newer park models in our RV park.|
|Beautiful RV Park development here in Canyon Vista Resort|
This great place, at the foot of Superstition Mountain, just east of Mesa and a tad further east from Phoenix is a special place for several reasons.
1. The views of Superstition from the RV park are first rate
2. We have so many folks we know who winter here and that we enjoy visiting with
3. There is always so much to do (and so little time to take it all in)
4. The motorcycle rides offer some terrific scenery
5. The golf courses are top rate…..and more…
So, what have we been up to? The photos that follow sum it up quite nicely.

|A large group of folks were enjoying an early happy hour and they took a vote on our back up prowess. Although very hard to see on the white card, we were awarded with a 10 for a seamless and quick back in.|
|We love the roads here in southern Arizona|
|Hanging out with one of the two Iowan couples we have befriended over the years. Lavonne and Dave led us on a really nice motorcycle ride to South Mountain. More of those to come in the days ahead.|
|Yes.......hanging out in the sun is a pretty nice way to spend any day in the desert.|
|Our ride to South Mountain|
|Phoenix in the distance. We were at an elevation of about 2500 feet|

|Jeanette's favourite desert bird, a road runner, graced us for a time while visiting with Pat and Fred.|
And the week ahead will have us travel some more roads, meet up with more friends and enjoy more of what southern Arizona has to offer.
But the 'piece de resistance' was enjoying the numerous photos and videos we viewed when our little Edmonton, Alberta based grandson, Owen enjoyed a fabulous 2nd birthday. Even from this distance away, it was fun to partake in his fun day.
And we also got to get some Face Time in with our Langley, BC based family too.
And that's it from here for now. Thanks for dropping in.
