Fountain Hills, Arizona: Our daily life has been trucking along here at McDowell Mountain despite being in round four of the virus-that-shall-not-be-named. Today I thought I would just share a few pictures from what has become one of our all-time favorite RV destinations after three years of living on the road.
This is the third winter in a row that we have come to this little regional park northeast of Phoenix. So far, the weather has been just outstanding. Warm sunny days with a little breeze. In my opinion, November is the nicest month to be in this part of Arizona. Last year we were here in December and that felt too late. It was much cooler after the sun went down that time of year and I really missed walking the dogs just before sunset and warm evening happy hours sitting outside of the camper - my favorite time of the day here.
Mountain biking is another big draw that keeps bringing us back to this area. Last year we purchased a Trek Marlin hard tail bike for me, and this year Jason got a new Giant Stance. We've been having a blast cruising around on the more than 40 miles of mountain biking trails in the park.
