Winter Journey Part III — Living in a Mesquite Bosque

So here we are, in our small RV, sitting in the middle of the Avra Valley of the Sonoran Desert, a 20-minute drive west of Tucson. ┬áThe Sonoran Desert is actually a large thing, stretching from Phoenix, AZ, into northern Mexico and across the breadth of Arizona. ┬áBut it is not the sand-dunes-desert that may first come to mind when you hear “desert.” That image may fit the Mojave Desert to the west, better.
