It was a hot one today and I wasn't used to it since it's been in the mid-90s for a while, so when it gets over 100° like it is today it's hard to deal with. But heat like this is a good reminder of why us full timers have a winter place and a summer place we like to be, and Tucson Arizona is definitely not my idea of a good summer place to be.
I'm still trying to figure out how to camp my way back up to Denver but it seems like every place I check is either closed, full, or "you won't know till you get there". An example of that is the last time I checked which was a couple days ago the Saguaro National Park here in Tucson Arizona is open, and the Grand Canyon national Park near Flagstaff Arizona is closed. There both run by the Department of Interior, there both located in the state of Arizona one is open and one is closed.
Now I'm sure the various local agencies have a reason for opening one and closing the other, but that's not the point I'm trying to make, the point is the situation changes so quickly, and is so different from place to place that it's really hard to make plans on finding a place to stay for the night. And all of the camping knowledge that I have built up over time both as an RVer and a boondocker is pretty much useless right now because everything has changed and the places I used to stay are no longer reliable. Including my last resort, fall back places like truck stops and rest areas which are full of trucks trying to keep the supply chain open.
I've spent the last couple of days researching places to stay when I leave Tucson and will continue to do so until I have to decide to pack-up or re-up on Friday, but I have to say that from what I'm seeing so far I may have to re-up for another week fully realizing that I'm getting deeper and deeper into the vacation-tourist season which is not going to help my ability to find a place to camp.

She looks awfully small to be riding such a big horse, she even has a small saddle.
She's trained her horse to go whichever way her tongue is pointing.
