We had a good time in Santa Fe as we usually do. We had about 12 hours or so to get back to So Cal. We stopped at a state park near Winslow, Arizona for an one night stay. We had stayed there once before in our travels. As it was Monday, there weren't a lot of people there. However, we were all set up and just relaxing when a man knocked on our door and said this was there site. We had filled out a self reservation form and put it in the box for the payment. He said they had reservations though there wasn't a tag showing the site was reserved. We packed up and when up to the visitor center as we were afraid to just pick a different site. Well, it turned out the ranger had just given the couple the site as he didn't know we had already paid for that particular site. It hadn't been reserved and they could have just gone back to the ranger and said there was someone already there and he would have given them another site. Oh well, lesson learned. We got another site that was just as good. We got up early and made the long drive back to Jojoba, listening to an audio book that always makes the trip go faster it seems.
We got back to Jojoba in the late afternoon and hadn't even gotten set up when our neighbors Sam and Alice invited us over for a drink or two, which we did. They have a cute little dog, Teddy and just got another named Rusty. Savannah was happy to see her boyfriend Teddy and to make a new friend, Rusty. We had an enjoyable evening talking to Sam and Alice. We love traveling but it is nice to be back in Jojoba for a spell with its great people and lots of fun things to do. Then there is our great view of the Mountains from our site. Nice to be home.
