Escapees Park in Congress, AZ

We have arrived at North Ranch Escapees Park in Congress, AZ. It is a very nice campground, with a lovely view of the mountains, a fenced-in dog park, a pickle-ball court with people who are happy to teach newcomers, and loads of activities. 
Sign on gate of dog park is bilingual.

Social hour is every evening at 4:00, and ice cream social is every Sunday. Classes are held in beading, woodcarving, Tai Chi, Majong, stamping, line dancing, Bridge, quilting, ham radio, embroidery, polymer clay, and more. They also have a group of musicians who meet weekly, and a chat & stitch group. If you are bored here, it's because you want to be. And the views are gorgeous!

We will take a ride into the nearest town today to see what the grocery stores are like. Unfortunately the only WiFi available is through TengoNet, which we have found is both pricey AND unreliable, not a good combo. And we are out of network for AT&T so we can't use our hotspot. Time to rethink switching one or both phones to Verizon?

On our Auggie walk this morning I took some photos of the Saguaro Park here that boasts the presence of "Methuselah," a saguaro cactus that reportedly is over 400 years old. Amazing. This camp has one of the best cactus gardens I have seen.
