I’m currently bewitched by the Superstition Mountains while staying at Lost Dutchman State Park. Link is to my Park Overview and I’m still working on campground details, so stay tuned.
I am finished with all the pages about my stay at Catalina State Park (click for my overview of park). Here is overview of campground with pics and details of both loops, including the opportunity to camp with your horse!
Me and Park Naturalist, Jonathan McCabe on the hike to Romero Ruin at Catalina State Park. It’s activities like this with enthusiastic rangers that make staying in state parks the best, in my opinion!
I’m now at Lost Dutchman State Park in absolute awe! Same ole comfy home, new and gorgeous yard, the Superstition Mountains! Wowee, eh? I’ll be posting details about the park and campground here, also, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, I’ve been posting on Facebook with fun activities I’ve been doing and attractions I’m seeing, so you can take a look there. My posts are public, so you don’t need an account to view: https://www.facebook.com/malia.lane
From here, I’ll be making my way back to Sedona for a month or so. But by then I’ll probably be ready to escape the already too-hot heat in the desert. I hear the lush green of Oregon calling my name again lately, so I may not be able to resist that much longer. 🙂
When I left Texas in January, I took the southern route and stopped at Big Bend National Park, which besides being great, allowed me to cross another wanna-see national park off my list. I just haven’t had the time to do more than keep up with going through pictures while on the road and posting to friends and family on Facebook so they know where I am. I haven’t gotten many new website pages done on Big Bend or my other stops (I saw the Marfa lights)!), but I still plan to do that at some point.
One of my favorite stops was at City of Rocks State Park in New Mexico and for those who know of my fascination with rocks, you know I was in total awe of the amazing formations here. Click link above for my park overview, then there are 3 other pages on the campground details.
I met Beth, a long-time Facebook friend while staying at Gilbert Ray Campground near Tucson and that’s always fun when you already feel like you know someone from their posts before you even meet in person.
I had a couple of weeks to rest at a private RV site in Casa Grande, AZ that belongs to another wonderful friend and I’m so thankful I’m now all caught up with some “real life” details like getting snail mail, taxes filed, etc.
I do post a lot of photos and info on Facebook almost daily as that’s a lot quicker and easier to do, so if you’re into social media, check me out there: Malia Lane Facebook. My RV related posts are all shared publicly, so you don’t need an account to view them.

Old But Still Good News:
May, 2013: After a long period of research and trying to decide whether to keep my first motorhome — (“The Great Motorhome Debate“) — I finally decided to do what I really wanted in my heart and bought a new-to-me motorhome! Here are some public pictures I posted to Facebook (you don’t need an account to see them). My new rolling home: 2012 Winnebago Adventurer 35P. And I have finally decided the perfect name for her is “Kismet” given the miraculous way that she came to me. I continue to be amazed at the number of miracles and angels that still come my way to help keep my travel dreams alive.
I am also happy to announce I finally got rid of the nightmare Ford Escape and all the breakdowns and worries caused by it not being safely flat towable as was represented by Ford. I’m so happy with my little Honda Fit! Her name is “Serendipity” since it was yet another happy miracle.
