A soft, quiet, sunset settles in over the desert .
Today was cloudy and warm which was a nice break from the normally cloudless, bright blue desert skies, that we usually get.
It's beginning to look more and more like the total isolation we've been going through will ease up a little by the end of the month. Hopefully this will mean state parks and other federal and state government type campgrounds will start opening up and us full-timers will be able to return to a more normal life. But I will still be self isolating for a while, and will definitely stay away from crowds, but being able to move around will make me feel like I've still got some freedom.
The campground here at the Pima County Fairgrounds has remained less than half full, which is about the same as it was when I got here. Every morning a couple of RVs will pull out and head down the road, and every afternoon a few more will pull in, so the amount stays about the same. The RVs are still skipping a space for social distancing when they check in so the RV Park still has plenty of room. I'm really thankful that the state of Arizona saw fit not to force the campgrounds to close like a lot of other places did.
Large concession trailers sit idle in a corner of the Fairgrounds waiting for the next big event.....which may or may not ever come.
When I first spotted this old trailer in a fenced in area at the Fairgrounds I thought it had been in a wreck and had lost its slide-out. But upon closer inspection it appears that somebody cut the wall out of the trailer, possibly in an effort to convert it into a concession trailer to sell hotdogs or something..... It might've been a good idea but came up short in the design and engineering department.
This is one of the many horse barns at the Fairgrounds. During the horse shows the riders have comfortable places to stay and so do the horses.
Some folks bring their own hay to the horse show, but others buy hay when they get here, so the Fairgrounds keeps plenty of hay on hand.
I thought I saw a few Bats hanging in a dark corner of the hay shed and all I could think about was how good some deep-fried Bat on a stick would taste right now. But I didn't want to go to the trouble of shaving a couple of Bats so I just warmed up some soup instead.
