Staying for almost a week at the Mission View Rv park in south Tucson. A very sweet park in an out of the way location. $35 per night and off season they take Passport America. The flowers on trees and bushes are starting to blossom very nicely. We sit in our chairs here and watch the humming birds at the feeder we bought. Went to Medria Canyon just south of here tonight and saw the mother load of humming birds. Saw the Broad Tail with red beak, Rufous, and Magnificent humming bird. Pictures will be loaded onto the bird post. Oh my gosh.... what a highlight to our day. What a find in these birds we always wanted to see these. Missed the Rufous in a picture. I was so shocked to see it glowing orange and golden in the evening sun all I could do is say oh my gosh, oh my gosh....very cool.
Medira Canyon Birds
I still think signs are things to remember..as we searched for the Elegant Togon we saw this sign, we decided to do something else, some where else.............you know what I mean?
The National Guard Air Force Base airport was just around the corner from us. This is what we saw most days....not sure why the noise didn't bother us. Fun to watch....
Very cool place with lots of technical information about air planes. Trish liked the shapes of the planes, colors and human interest stories. I have no idea how the guide remembered all the letters and numbers that went with each one. We would recommend it to everyone except children....way too much tech info for kids and hot.
This Mission was just down the street from the park we were staying in so we checked it out. Pretty interesting, very hot and beautiful desert gardens. I am not sure how anything grows around here because the ground is like concrete.

After my husbands widow maker heart attack in 2004, the doctor said just relax and enjoy life for a while. So it happened: the 43' NewMar Mountain Aire coach was purchased and the house sold....eventually. Relaxing? Not always! We are truly blessed to spend this time together... and with friends.
September 2015 now traveling with Ford F350diesel dually and Host Mammoth Truck Camper.
