The Town of Picacho

2018 West, Arizona, Road Trip

Our stay at the Picacho/Tuscon NW KOA is complicated by the construction project that not only is widening a four mile stretch of I-10 but was responsible for the disappearance of the town of Picacho, Arizona in July 2012. We learned about the demolition of the town when we asked our campground host for a restaurant recommendation. Once upon a time we could have traveled less than half a mile to Picacho, now because of closed ramps it’s a circuitous route to the interstate exit and a Denny’s Restaurant near Eloy. But it’s a pretty drive just before sunset past cotton fields ready for harvest!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
