A walk in the desert - Amado, Arizona

Friday morning - today it is supposed to reach 90 - way to hot for March. Tomorrow too in the 90s Home is looking good it is in the 60s there. Today we're just kind of waiting to hear from Verizon to see if the replacement tablet comes in. If it does we'll go pick it up and then make plans for leaving on Sunday. If not guess we'll be here a few more days. Still not sure which way we'll go when we head out. 
Yesterday we stayed around home until later in the afternoon when we went out to Mac's Pub and Patio in Green Valley. Met friends there for dinner. Always great fish and chips there. Yum. Also while there we went to a hardware store for some screws for the license plate on the Jeep. A couple shook out on the rough road coming home. And Bill found the store carried his favorite hat type. So he got a new one. And put one of his new beaded hat bands on it. Very dapper. 
That's about all we did. I did take a walk through the desert here next to the campground. Just some pictures from the walk. Mean looking plant. 
 This guy looks fat and healthy lots of new little buds on it. 
 I like these - they look so stately.
 A barrel cactus - I think. Yellow buds on the top. 
 Tiny little flower - about the size of a dime - adding color to the landscape.
More color in little flowers.

 Isn't this weird  wouldn't like to fall on one. 
 These guys are really nasty. 
 More small flowers try to exist out here. 
The campground has added a few new touches this year. A little sitting area. This is the Mountain View RV Park in Amado, Arizona. They are a Passport America park but discount only good for one night. It has 30 and 50 amp electric. Of course water and sewer and cable TV. The WiFi is good throughout the park.  It has a pool, lounge with a little store and book exchange. The new owners are really working on improving it. 
 Another patch of pretty yellow flowers. 
 Another area of new plants and picnic table. 
 All of the site numbers are on a hand painted piece of curved metal. 
 Our space.
And that is about it for today. Watching the NASCAR truck and cup practice. Not as fun without Kyle racing.
