Monday, February 13 – We pulled out of Hickiwan RV in Why, AZ, this morning taking AZ-86 to Tucson. This was a nice route with very little traffic bringing us into Tucson and the Justin's Diamond J RV Park without having to drive on I-10 or drive through the city of Tucson.
We are in site #11 at Justin's. It is one of 19 pull-thru sites.
The streets in Justin's are paved and the sites are gravel. Very level and nice
in size. We have full-hookups with 50 amp electric. We have a nice shade tree we
can sit under during the hot afternoons. We received a Good Sam's discount
because Passport America is not honored during the winter months. We've stayed
here previously and like the park and its location. There are hiking trails
right off the park near and into Tucson Mountain Park.
There are many activities here at the Park. Mini Golf, Pickleball courts, bocce
ball and horseshoes are a few of the activities. There are also organized events
at the clubhouse.
After getting set-up in our site, we drove downtown to the Tucson Visitor's
Center to pick-up some brochures and talk to the workers about visiting the
city. This is our third visit to Tucson, one of our favorite cities!
Since it was still early, we decided to do a hike into the Sonoran Desert behind
the Park. There are several marked trails in the desert. Tucson Mountain Park is
only a short hike to the north of us. The hike we did would be considered very
easy. We hooked several trails together to get the distance we were looking to
cover. We hiked 4.1 miles in about 2 hours. There was very little elevation
change. We did a little scouting to see if riding our bikes on these trails was
a possibility. Seems like a possibility in the future.
A very nice way to mark the trails. No big signs.
Stop along one of the trails for a little rest.
We met a few friends along the way.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great
