North Ranch Escapee's Park

We arrived yesterday in Congress AZ to spend our four days here at the North Ranch SKP park.  They situated us on a corner with a lovely view out the front window of some cactus landscaping.

This seems to be one of the undiscovered gems in the park system.  There aren't any big towns nearby, but the landscaping is gorgeous and the people are friendly.

I started the morning by attending the tai chi session held outside.  What a great way to get muscles stretched out and minds calmed.

After lunch I went over to play pickleball.  They have one court in a large building which is nice.  No worry about overhead sun glare or wind interference.  It felt so good to get to play again.

Left Brain and I took a walk around the perimeter of the park, we still haven't delved into all the streets yet.

Tomorrow there is line dance, so I will have to check that out as well. 

There are a lot of activities here in the park and so far we've had no desire to leave to run into town or check anything else out.

It's nice to have the down time to enjoy playing pickleball and reading.

Long Live Queen of North Ranch


  1. How far are you from Apache Junction? I guess the music, food and beer is good at Filly's Roadhouse....

  2. Last year I went to Phoenix with a friend and we broused through several cactus gardens ... they are all blooming at this time of year and I had forgotten how beautiful they were until just now when I walked through your post. We forget that the desert is a living breathing ecosystem that supports life in a way most of us are not used to. So Beautiful ... thank you for the stoll Queen of Cactus Flowers.

  3. The cactus blooms are gorgeous! I did not know that birds would build nests inside a cactus, but why not? I've enjoyed this stroll around your RV park. Enjoy your quiet time. Pogo and I wish you a Blessed and Happy Easter. May the Bunny find you and leave you a nice basket full of goodies. Hugs, Edna B.

  4. Love the photo of the bird in the cactus. We have yet to see a bird in them.
    What PROGRAM DO YOU USE to make your COLLAGES? I love them!
