Day 19 Jan 30 Joshua Tree NP to Saguaro National Park

This was a long day covering 408 miles. Leaving the campsite an approaching motor home started honking with the drive madly waving his arms at us. We stopped backed up and learned we had left the satellite dish up.  This was a first for us in 2 years. We fueled up at Twentynine Palms and headed east on 62 through Parker and on to I-10 at Vicksburg, AZ. We took the Phoenix bypass to Gila Bend and then I-8 and I-10 to Marana. In this way we avoided all the heavy traffic except for 37 miles on I-10 from the I-8 junction to Marana.  Not surprisingly, Saquaro Cactus are everywhere in this part of the country. We are camped at the Gilbert Ray County Park just outside the National Park which has no camping. This is a large very well maintained campground with electric at every site but you have to fill your water tank at one of many water stations throughout the park. The Saguaro in the photo is right our View.
