Yuma and Mittry Lake 2010

We are in Yuma area enjoying the wonderful weather. Except today it is a little cool and rainy. But yesterday the weather was beautiful and sunny.
Dean and I arrived in Yuma on Dec. 15 and stayed the first week in the Foothills with our Boomer Friends Chuck and Jan. They hosted a happy hour on Dec. 17 and the first picture is of all the Boomers that participated in the Happy Hour. After drinks and appetizers we went to the local Christmas parade (3 blocks away) and then walked around the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights.

On Wednesday, Dec. 22, Dean and moved out to Mittry Lake, just North of Yuma to enjoy Christmas and New Year's with the Boomers. Chuck and Jan joined us the next day. When we arrived I spotted this white Heron in the bushes by the canal. Mittry is a very pretty area with a canal on one side of the campground and a small lake on the other side. There are lots of birds and very few people.

The picture below is Christmas Day with the Boomers. We had 23 at a potluck with fabulous food and weather. Ron and Sharon were the most festive with their santa hats.

Tuesday, Dec. 28, six of us did a hike up into the hills by Mittry Lake and got some great photos of the area. In the picture below you can see our RV's with the canal on the right and the lake on the left. It is a beautiful area.

These are the hardy hikers: Dee and Bruce, Tom, Ron, Nick and I was taking the picture. We hiked for about 2 and a half hours over some pretty rugged terrain.

Currently,Dean and I are in Yuma staying at Independent Hydraulics getting our levelers worked on. We drove the RV over on Monday and here it is Wednesday and they are not ready yet. We have spent 2 nights in the parking lot and it looks like we will spend 1 more. Oh well, that's the price of owning a home on wheels. Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to rejoin our friends at Mittry for the big New Year's celebration.
