One of our favorite places is Picacho Peak State Park in Arizona. It’s located off I-10 between Tucson and Casa Grande, AZ. We discovered this wonderful state park last year in our travels and we wanted to make sure we made a stop this trip as well.
I have to say, before we got here we stopped at a rest area around the 320 mm. You must stop here if you are passing through. I know it sounds weird to tell you to stop at a rest area. But WOW! What a view. The giant boulders and mountains make for some beautiful photo ops.
Back to Picacho Peak now…It is filled with the huge Saguaro Cacti and has some nice walking and hiking trails. We have yet to see a bad sunset here as the sun sets over the mountains and creates beautiful pink, red and violet streaks across the sky.
We only plan on being here for a couple days and nights as we make our way to Desert Center, CA.
Tasha is enjoying the weather here, as are we. Today it got up into the 50’s and tomorrow will be even warmer. Dare I say we may have nice warm weather for a while? I hope so because we were starting to get really depressed with the bitter cold weather we’ve encountered.
