Left bustling Quartzsite east on I-10 headed for Casa Grande, AZ which is about an hour south of Phoenix. The vistas as one drives across Arizona are spectacular and the roads are basically dead flat between the ranges of mountains. Went by the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station which was spewing enormous amounts of steam from their cooling towers, probably because the air temperature was about 45 degrees and the relative humidity was zilch. One can spot the steam rising behind the low mountains near the station from about 40 miles out. The drive through Phoenix was easy w/ Peg and the Garmin navigating. We made it to Casa Grande at about 2:00 PM and set up the Barbarian Invader for a two-day stay at Casa Grande RV Resort. The park had full hookups but the wi-fi is terribly overloaded so no streaming video here.
