Looks like a great time! I was in the Superstitious Mountains when I was a kid. It's some pretty rugged country.
Are you going to go through the red rock country while you are in AZ?

Not certain, tomorrow and the next day we will be in the National monument area then we will head to Rocky point in old Mexico for a week or so. Eventually we are going to drift as far east as Austin, I've never been to Texas. Home in mid March.

We left Oregon on Jan 6 as we had two days that looked like the roads would be snow free.
Had truck and trailer parked and running in front of the house, did our final sweep and I picked up my down jacket and a stuff sack, thought I might want it the first two days or so.
Worn that jacket every day. Been near freezing or just below every morning. We are just north of the Mexican border, we and the Canadians taking it in stride, lot of whining from others. Locals say maybe 3 or 4 nights a year like this.
But, it's 25 and snowing at home. Daughter called and said the neighbors are pissed because I haven't plowed their driveways.
Nice to be missed.
I do pray you all winter well.

Nice picture, yes it's nice to be missed we are supposed to get some wintery mix today and have been in a snow drought this winter but have had rain so not as dry as it could be . The snow would build the underground water table where most of the rain runs off.
No snow means a dry summer.

Sunset in Penasco, we'll be here for another week then back to Tucson. Sustained 30 mph winds with gusts to 50 all day, starting to lay down we hope.
The dogs are enjoying the beach.

Great read.
If you go to the San Francisco of Texas be sure to decontaminate yourself at the Alamo. It’s just up the road. 👍🏻🙂
