Took a trip to Tucson for the local sites. Pima was first on our list. It's always cool to see the planes that once protected our country, but also sad that we need so many.
We also drove by the Airplane Bone Yard, then made a quick stop at the San Xavier del Bay Mission.
Stay Details for this week: Butterfield RV Resort & Observatory (Benson, AZ). This resort has about 200 very close spots. We decided to stay here because of the cold front that went through. It has great amenities, and is a beautiful resort with a close-knit bunch of elderly folk that winter here. The swimming pool is heated, there's a large club house, a wood shop, pickle ball court, daily activities, and of course an observatory that houses a 16" Meade mirrored telescope. It is across the road from the post office, they do accept mail, and the resort is just a walk away from Safeway and many local restaurants. The resort is $45/night, and is cheaper if you stay for the week (which we did), or month or year. They also have Good Sam and Passport America discounts.
