City of Rocks II

Just on the other side of these rocks we discover not one, but two Arizona white oak trees that offer some wonderful shade. We do get late afternoon sun, but it is not nearly as bad as yesterday’s camp.

It’s several degrees cooler here at City of Rocks than it is at Rock Hound. Between the lower temps, some shade, keeping the windshield covered, and side and back doors open we get the benefit of every little breeze. If the breeze dies down—and that’s not often—there is more than enough sunshine to keep the solar panel working at storing energy in the house battery to keep electronics charged and our 12 volt fan running. It’s lovely!
The Chiweenie Brothers and I take a walk every morning before the sun comes up then it’s back to MissAdventure for breakfast and coffee taken in the open air of our beautiful camp.

We will be staying her for two weeks or until the generator is fixed, whichever comes first. In any case there’s a lot of exploring to do here.

Thanks for stopping by 2DogsTravel! Hugs, Shawna

What’s in the night sky? June’s planets: JUPITER—at opposition—will be bright in the sky from dusk to dawn. SATURN can be seen from mid-evening until dawn, and VENUS appears for a bit in the dawn. Around mid-month MERCURY and MARS will give us the closest conjunction of two planets during the year.
