Tucson was our next stop. We were ready to do some biking! They day we woke up to head to Tucson our water was frozen, we had no idea where we were going to stay, we ran out of propane and our refrigerator stopped working, but like my mom always says “life is what you make it.” By the end of the day all was better. The water thawed, we found a place to stay (southern Arizona is very busy this time of year,) we made a trip to Costco and filled up both our tanks (they have good prices on propane) and we bought a small refrigerator to tide us over while Marc diagnoses ours. The box quickly became an ARC-170.
We stayed at Tra-tel RV park. Donna and Mike who worked there were so helpful. It was a tight parking spot, but it was right on the bike trail! Grammy, Marcus, Caroline, Marc and I biked a 35 miles while we were there. The trail was flat and most of what we rode was paved.
We used our museum pass to visit The International Wildlife Museum. We learned about forest fires, were able to touch a variety of horns and antlers, and saw some mythilogical skeletons. The museum highlights over 400 species of insects, mammals and birds from around the globe. Some of the collections are more than 100 years old and all the animals found at the museum were donated by various government agencies, wildlife rehabilitation centers, captive breeding programs, zoos and individuals.
