Usery Mountain Regional Park

Today was a move day. We packed up our outfit and moved about 12 miles down the road to the Usery Mountain Regional Park. It is a great spot just north of Mesa, Arizona. Far enough out of town to miss out on all the sirens and traffic but still just a hop, skip and a jump for shopping and accessing the things we like about the Phoenix area. Hmmm, have to figure out what those are, other than the friends and relatives, we have that seem to like the warm smoggy air of the big city. It looks like this place might just be high enough on the hill that we will be able to look down on the smog rather than through it as we were in Apache Junction. When you don't stay in town very often it is surprising how much you notice that thick air.

This park is run by the Maricopa County and has a lot more space between rigs than most RV Parks. There is power and water at every site and there is a dump site centrally located so we should be OK here for a week or two. There are clean washrooms and showers available as well. It is nice to hear the birds and set out amongst the desert flora and fauna and enjoy the warm afternoon sun. We have signed up for a week and have the option of adding another week after that if we like, so I guess we will just have to see how it goes and how long it takes us to recover from the big move.

  1. I just love that place! Enjoy your time there. We spent six weeks there last winter. There are lots of trails around if you're interested in some hiking.
