Our first camping trip this year took us mostly around Southern Arizona as we became 'rainbirds' to escape the never ending rains in Northern California. We did find the sun while visiting a National Park, a National Monument, museums, botanical gardens, and a wonderful historic district in Tucson, AZ. A real highlight was the quirky and engaging town of Bisbee, AZ. Making the turn homeward logistics dictated a stop in Las Vegas - only my second stay ever on 'the stip'. Ran straight over to check out the Bellagio and it didn't disappoint with the over-the-top interiors and the highly-hyped fountain show. Guess what? One night in that town was more than enough.

After two weeks in the Southern California, Arizona and Nevada deserts we did a 'touch and go' through Death Valley and landed on the iconic Highway 395 where we spent two nights. The snow filled mountains of the Eastern Sierras chased us all the down the hill from Tahoe, CA.
