I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

SS – City and country scenes

As most of you know, I don’t spend much time in cities. Yet last week when we drove over two hours to look at a 5th-wheel, then  bought it, we had to drive on freeways, basically looping around the north and east side of Phoenix. Which along with all the “suburbs” is HUGE!

Along the 101 Loop concrete walls display some very interesting and simple patterns.

Not easy to photograph at 65mph in heavy traffic.

SR89 S to Wickenburg

Thank goodness the first half of the trip there is really scenic.

A new 5th Wheel--how exciting.
I stay away from big cities as much as I can. Even the small towns around here have lots of traffic--at times. And as know out here all the towns are pretty close together--not too many wide open spaces unless you go over the hump. MB

Is the new 5th wheel for you? Where are the pictures.

A new home? - I can live without the decorated cement and take the real things.

Happy New Year.

I am not much of a city person either. Congrats on your new home.

Ah, love the freedom of the mountains as you leave the metropolis behind you! :-D

I also hate cities! A new 5th wheel sounds exciting is it bigger? The scenic photos are great, the concrete jungle you can keep:( Keep well. Diane

Those are genuinely attractive and interesting wall treatments - not something that can generally be said of concrete embankments!

Ah, a trip down memory lane. Visiting my in-laws in Sun City over the years we would brave the Phoenix traffic heading hither and yon; drove to Wickenburg and Prescott and all over. I love their southwestern decor on the interstate overpasses and whatnot, and miss the saguaros and desert very, very much. You traveled on the same roads upon which we've traveled and ... wow ... I'm feeling a little nostalgic at this moment. Thanks, Gaelyn. Think I'll go hunt up my photos...

Gaelyn, what pretty scenery. Sure am missing it right now!

For a city--metropolitan area--Phoenix and its environs does a pretty good job of enhancing the freeway overpasses, ramps, and what would you call them: sidewalls? If you have to be driving in a city, it ain't half bad. You don't see much of that in other cities.
