In the Pines of Arizona

Heber RV Park

Heber RV Park

Who knew eastern Arizona was so beautiful?  After leaving the dusty flats of Gallup, we’re about 2 hours south west at an elevation of 6600 feet in the White Mountains surrounding Heber-Overgaard, AZ.  They claim “more trails than roads, more trees than buildings and more wildlife than people”.  We’re parked at the Heber RV Park, a 70 site park along highway 277.  This park offers full hookups for around $40/night.  There’s no over the air TV that we can find, but their free WiFi system handles video streaming very well.  This WiFi system would rate among the very best we’ve found.  It never missed a beat as we worked for several hours and then watched TV from the Genie GO back home.

Initially arriving at the Elk Pines RV Resort to a CLOSED sign, the owner came out to assist and even opened the gates to allow us an easy turn around.  As luck would have it, he owns both parks and his wife is awaiting our arrival once we found the “correct” location.  These two are some of the most pleasant park owners we’ve met. She quickly checked us in and showed us our spot, #5 in the center section right across from the office. Hookups for these center aisle sites are a bit quirky, water and power are on the curb side and sewer is on the street side, but set back at least 10 feet from the rear bumper.  These sites have small concrete slabs with picnic tables.  Tall pines are throughout along with a nicely landscaped park and doggie walk area.

While the weather isn’t warm here at nearly 7000 feet, this is the first night it’s not going to freeze, so no need to fill the fresh tank and put away the water hose.  Tomorrow we’ll continue to the Phoenix area where we’re expecting high temperatures close to 90.  It’ll be nice to finally put the jeans away in favor of shorts and flip-flops.  More from the Valley of the Sun tomorrow!
