Casa Grande, AZ

I had originally planned on spending a few nights in one of Maricopa County’s campgrounds around Phoenix.  Based on reviews (online and friends), they have some really nice campgrounds.  But I decided to spend one night between Tucson and Phoenix at a campground that had full hookups.  In looking for a place, I found a FHU place in Casa Grande, with a Passport America price of $12.00.  At that price I decided to go ahead and spend 3 nights there.  There isn’t really much to do in Casa Grande, but it wasn’t too far from the Apache Trail (scenic drive) and I found out they had a Rubio’s (great fish tacos) and I hadn’t eaten at a Rubio’s in a couple of years. 

So other than laundry, errands and eating fish tacos (twice) the only thing I did while in Casa Grande was the Apache Trail scenic drive.

It was in Jim and Gayle’s blog where I first read about the giant asparagus.  Jim and Gayle's blog about the giant asparagus   They were right, they do look like a big asparagus!! But in comparing plants, it looks like they may not be the same thing.  Who knows!!

From here, I head to Cottonwood, AZ (near Sedona).  By the way, I am about 2 blogs behind.  I didn’t have good PC connection at my last place (Bluff, UT), so I wrote the blogs and hope to post one a day until I catch up.  I am currently in Moab, UT where we had a couple of inches of snow this morning (I will post a couple of pictures in my Moab blog).  In addition, I have a slight cold so I decided I would stay in today and catch up on a few things!

  1. It certainly sounds like you went to Utah too soon. We're having high winds and blowing dust in Deming. Just can't have perfect weather all the time!
