I’m back in Tucson since it just seemed like a likely place weather-wise to spend at least part of the winter, and only a day from where I was in Sedona. I haven’t even finished going through all the pictures I took of both the east and west side of Saguaro National Park last year, so I’m going to remedy that. But the main reason is because I want to see much more of Sabino Canyon. I discovered this wonder shortly before having to leave the area last year and simply must see more. The links above are to the pages I’ve done on those areas.
For at least the first couple of months, I am staying at Justin’s Diamond J RV Park in west Tucson.
Getting into the spirit – this is the first time I’ve decorated for Christmas since I was in Tennessee four years ago!
I really love my backyard that is right up next to the desert with miles of trails and amazing views!
A humongous desert moon beside a majestic saguaro cactus – I think I’m going to like this neighborhood!
But it wasn’t until I downloaded it from my phone that I saw I captured a flying saucer about to land! 🙂 Tell me that’s not what it looks like! LOL
More Great Stuff in Arizona:
I was completely bewitched by the Superstition Mountains while staying at Lost Dutchman State Park. Link is to my Park Overview and I also covered Campground Details, and this is one I definitely want to return to sometime.
Before that, I was at another great AZ state park, 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!
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
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 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.
