At the rally last weekend, Steve from Tucson recommended I take a trip to explore Patagonia Lake State Park about 70 miles south of Tucson near the Mexican border. What a great idea!
I was able to reserve a nice paved site with hookups overlooking the lake and after finishing up work each day, Millie would get a walk down to the boat ramp at the lagoon to go swimming. She was in full approval of this park!
Of course, lots of Border Patrol agents on these roads as well. No illegals spotted today!
It was a perfect “hang your head out the window” sunny day for Millie!
The last couple of miles before the actual border, the mountains recede into an interesting grassy savannah that almost looks a bit like Africa (except we’ve got cattle and horses instead of safari animals!)
We drove west into the town of Nogales (Arizona side) to get gas and see the actual border crossing, but didn’t have enough time or nerve to cross today.
Instead, we headed back to the Lake for a sunset paddle in our Sea Eagle FastTrack kayak. Lots of interesting birds on the lake, but I only had my point-n-shoot so didn’t get zoomed in as much as I wanted.
A great relaxing weekend was had by all!
