Welcome to the photo blog for David and Janet Elmore. You can find pages full of photos from our trips with Vanessa or Savanna (our van-based RV) and pages that are a record of events with lots of photos. Many of our travel photos are connected to a map at the bottom of our posts so you can see where we went and can look for photos at specific places.

Below is a list of recent posts.

KOFA Queen Canyon Road

Sat 18-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

We moved about 25 miles to another site off a four-wheel drive track. We moved because we like to see new desert and because we have good ATT service here. It truly is interesting how the desert changes....

Castle Dome Road

Fri 17-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

David spent a while in the AM catching up on news articles.  We may not have ATT service when we travel further into the refuge. We left our site on the road to the horse tanks (#42) and headed back to the...

Horse Tanks

Thu 16-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

We are in the KOFA Wildlife Refuge parked off an unnamed four-wheel drive road which leads from King Road to some “horse tanks.” The road can be transverse by most any vehicle with high clearance. There are...

KOFA Wildlife Refuge

Wed 15-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

The KOFA Wildlife Refuge is about 40 miles north of Yuma. It is a huge area of mountains and desert filled with cacti. There are dirt roads that crisscross the area that are suitable for any high clearance...

Marine Corp Air Station Yuma

Tue 14-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

Dave, one of David’s former PhD students, works at Marine Corp Air Station Yuma (MCAS) as a data analyst . He was able to take us on a tour of his office space and the hanger where they repair the airships...

County Road 15 1/2

Mon 13-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

We drove from Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument to Yuma for a visit with our friends David and Jennifer. The ride was uneventful. Once again we remarked on the quaint beauty of Ajo, but did not stop. There...

Games Day

Sun 12-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

We had no great plans for today other than driving to the border where there is a convenience store where Janet hoped to get some milk. No luck. So we decided to drive north to Why where there is another...

Desert View Loop

Sat 11-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

We had to move today. We had planned to stay here just three days, but decided to extend another two days. It was not unexpected that we couldn’t stay in the same site. Moving is not a problem: bring in the...

Senita Basin Loop

Fri 10-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel | 2 comments

Today we drove south toward the border, then turned west on a very dusty road that paralleled the border wall. The wall here is like the one we saw in Texas — steel “pickets” about 30 feet high. After six...

Estes Canyon Trail

Thu 9-Feb-2023 Arizona, Travel |

After a quiet morning, we took the Ajo Canyon drive to access the Estes Canyon hiking trail. The drive is a mostly gravel/dirt road through 21 miles of mesquite, cacti, brittle bush, and mountain views ....
