Yuma Bucket List, January 02/2023

We are working on our Yuma Buck List!!  Have seen lots already but don’t want to miss out on stuff so now have a list.    Up today…Castle Dome Ghost Town Museum

Driving we spot..  what is it??  First thought, a plane but it didn’t move, next guess a cloud. Next, neck guess – a dog. No to the cloud & dog.  We settle on a UFO 🛸🛸

Allan checking out the signage.  No photos, hum

Pavement ends here.  Didn’t know we’d be on a rocky road for the last 14km (8.5m).  Happy we didn’t decide to trailer a Vette.  About 1k into the drive we encounter this sign.

Made it!  Bob loves this type of road, us not so much.

We were surprised that way out there there was an RV park to accomendate about 5 RVs with full hookups.  Maybe park workers?


Love the upper balcony The fountain; the sign  🙂

The mine shaft

Shattered glass is common around historic mining sites. Hard at work!


Hum! having a little bit of a good time?

What happens when you drink on the job?

Look at those pipes!   

My bother used to work for Peter&Paul.  Their sogan was “Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t”

Finally, an animal! 

Bottles, bottles, bottleBack to our UFO.  Mystery solved! I thought at certain angles it looked like there was a rope attached to it,  It was a rope and it’s connected to the fan on photo 2.  Look above the fan to spot the rope

Turns out it is a Aerostat blimp that flies at 10,000, The blimp is one of eight that are part of the Tethered Aerostat Radar System owned by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They are used for surveillance of the southern U.S. border.
