Summer Adventure 2021: Conclusion – The Road Home to Southern Arizona

We left Three Island Crossing State Park in Glenns Ferry, Idaho on July 7 with a 2 1/2 day drive ahead of us to get to our home on the border of Mexico.

The road home through Nevada.

Before we left Glenns Ferry, we stopped to pay our respects to those trail blazers, the pioneers of the 1800’s who had gone before us in nothing more than a horse drawn wagon on wooden wheels with no suspension and most of the time just walked along next to the wagon, because they only had room in the wagon for supplies.

Don’t forget, there weren’t any roads either, they were making their own roads. Makes me want to stop complaining about bad road conditions. Come along as we journey home from Idaho to southern Arizona…

Now on to our stop for the night, Ely, Nevada. We try to keep our drive time down to around 300 miles per day.

Can’t resist a beautiful straight road.

We stopped here at this RV Park in Ely in May 2018 on our way to Alaska. I think it was the same campsite too! This is the picture we took of ourselves here in Ely on that trip.

I was driving when we went through Vegas, but there’s plenty of pictures of the Vegas area in previous posts on this blog.

We stopped in Kingman, Arizona our second night. Although we prefer not staying at KOA campgrounds, it was the only place with space available.

We drove through the Phoenix and Tucson area on our way home. Pictures of these areas can be seen in previous posts on this blog.

Rio Rico Mountain, we are almost home!
Our driveway.
Closest neighbor to our west. Our house sits on a little more than 5 acres. This pic was looking west from our driveway.
Our front yard.
This is where we park our tiny house when we’re not traveling. This is also the site of our future garage project for the tiny house.

We’re home! A monsoon thunderstorm is greeting us!

We’re home now until late September/October. We’re preparing for a huge project here at the house. We’re having a garage built for the tiny house and hopefully it will be done by Christmas. More to come on the garage project in future posts. Until next week safe travels everyone!
