I think all of the people in British Columbia, half of Alberta and most of Oregon have relocated in Yuma! We decided to come here after a snowy day in Tuscon.
With the help of our Passport America 1/2 price camping directory we selected Southern Mesa RV Park
Yuma has been a surprising place. There's still a lot of cactus but lots of palms as well. I'm loving the bougainvillea that is blooming everywhere.
This is a huge agricultural area with grapefruit, tangelo, lemon and orange orchards, date plantations, huge fields of lettuce (it's the salad capital of the world), asparagus, & broccoli. Someone told me that they have three annual harvests of the lettuce. Most seems to be flood irrigated.
Many fellow travelers have recommended seeing the Yuma Territorial Prison so we did.
We're enjoying the sunshine again but I have to move away from the computer. More adventures later.
