ROAD TRIP - Wickenburg, AZ to Tombstone, AZ

Hot and Windy!  Arizona is suffering through a very windy period that is the devil's hand on the local wildfires.

The Monument Fire burning into Hereford and Sierra Vista, AZ

The Monument fire remains out of control and has burned over 50 homes or business buildings in Hereford, AZ, With the strong winds there is no hope to stop the advancement.


Instead of fighting the strong cross winds without rest on Interstate 10m we stopped off at the Pima Air & Space Museum south of Tuscon, AZ. The museum has the largest display of aircraft of any private museum in the world. Here are a dew select photos that depict some of the best of the collection.

A nicely preserved B-29 Bomber
B24 Liberator, Nose Art
B36 Perspective. A very rare bird!
More info on the Pima Air & Space Museum can be found HERE .


We arrived in the late afternoon and settled into the Wells Fargo RV Park. The jury is *well out* on this place. I will make my comments after our second day here, tomorrow.

We were able to score a superb dinner at The Depot and Johnny Ringo's Bar. See my comment and others at

We will be in town all day tomorrow before heading out to Carlsbad, NM. I leave you with this photo of the early, Arizona evening sun casting shadows and warm light down old, Allen Street.
