Mesa, Arizona: 4/23 – 4/27/19

Since I was under the weather when I returned from New Jersey, Scott reserved our site back at Towerpoint RV Resort for another few nights so that I could recuperate.  They gave us the same site that we had two weeks ago.

The next morning, we packed up and headed west to California.  Crossing over the Colorado River, we entered The Golden State.
