You are probably wondering why there are no pictures from a vacation in 2020 on the website by the end of February. Instead of going on a vacation we invested the money in a new patio. The old stained concrete patio didn't look good anymore and we found a company at the Home and Garden Show in Phoenix. They did a great job rejuvenating our patio. See pictures in the photo album of the backyard.
Beginning of March we went for one week camping in the Saguaro National Monument west of Tucson. During this trip we visited Old Tucson Studios. This was one of the first movie towns build in Arizona. Many movies have been filmed here. On another day we went to the Sonora Desert Museum.
With Covit-19 there will be no vacation trips this year. If there are any I will post an update here.
With the money we saved during the quarantine, no travel, no eating out, etc. I bought myself a new toy. A DJI Mavic Mini drone. The drone arrived on Thursday and I did some tests flying around in the house. That is possible because the drone came with propeller guards. I bumped into the wall only once. Today (29-May) I flew the drone for the first time. We went to our park in the morning and took off on a soccer field. Here is the link to the video from my first flight.
Over the summer we took our travel trailer and moved to the Juniper Ridge RV Resort north of Show Low, AZ. Show Low is at an elevation of 6,000 feet (ca. 2.000 m) and a lot cooler than in the desert in Phoenix. We did a lot of motorcycle rides with friends in the White Mountains of Arizona and in the neighboring New Mexico. Not too far away from our RV resort there is the Petrified Forest National Park. An other trip we visited the La Posada Hotel in Winslow, AZ. La Posada was the last of the great Fred Harvey / Santa Fe railroad hotels. It opened in 1930 as a masterpiece of Mary Jane Colter. La Posada is on the national nd state registers of historic places.
2020 is coming to an end and we wish all our friends and family a Merry Christmas and a better 2021.
