We work five days a week with two days off right now. So on those two days, we like to become tourists and visit something fun in the area.
I mean, who wants to stay in the RV all day?
Fortunately, there is so much to choose from around here that I doubt we will have a single weekend without some place new to see.
This photo was taken in May, shortly after we got here. We were very surprised to see snow capped mountains right in our back yard. This mountain range is called The San Francisco Peaks.
The tallest mountain in the range, Humphreys Peak, is the highest point in the state of Arizona at 12,633 feet in elevation.
We took a ride out to the Arizona Snowbowl, a ski resort located on the San Francisco Peaks. Opened in 1938, the Arizona Snowbowl is one of the longest running resorts in the West having been open for 75 years.
You see, we heard that they will take you up on the ski lift for a nominal fee.
The chair lift officially opened for the summer right after Memorial Day. We were very excited to check it out.
Dave and I were skiers in our younger days. We choose not to break any bones at this stage in our lives, so we have to settle for a summer ski lift. But I have to tell you, that it brought back great memories!
