From Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument we travel north on Route 85 to Ajo(Ah-Hoe). We love stopping here, walking around the square, and maybe a little lunch at the Oasis Cafe.
Jan had a Hot Roast Beef sandwich , and I had a wonderful Reuben.
The night's stop is in Gila Bend and since it is so hot, we change southern plans and decide to head north to The Escapee Park in Congress, Arizona and then on to Sedona where the elevation is over 4,000 feet. We calculate minus 4 degrees for every 1,000 feet-----or cooler!!
Love the town name
Our first stop is at the Red Rock Ranger Station for the Coconino National Forest. They were very helpful in suggesting boondocking sites on the forest roads near Sedona.
We boondocked here for four nights. Great spot!!
Since we were parked beside a path, on one day we had visitors come by on horseback. The path goes well to the side of Lady Blue.
This view is from Main Street in Sedona. Everywhere are views of the red rocks. The town and the buildings are designed to mesh with the surroundings.
