Home Is Where We Park It – Fort Beale RV Park, Kingman, Arizona

Temperature 101 Degrees
Mohave Museum, Ranching and Miniature Room
That my friends is in the shade! It didn’t last long as it quickly settled back to a more comfortable 97 degrees. Yet, once again as you can see by the top temperature we’re not sweating it in Elvira.
We’re going back to the Mohave Museum to continue our tour.
We’re now moving into the second large exhibit hall which is all about ranching in this area over the years. Let’s take a walk together through this informative exhibit. There is a lot to be learned so here we go.
In our travels around this area we’ve noticed many cattle yards. The most recent one I remember was just outside Wickenburg. If my memory is correct we’ve seen others seemingly in the middle of nowhere but always adjacent to either a major highway or rail line.
We’re going to move now to what I call the miniature room.
How many of the items mentioned in the above descriptive plaque can you find in the pictures below?

The Small Family Residence
Early transportation westward.
That’s it for now. Tomorrow we’ll conclude our tour of this fascinating museum that chronicles the development of this area. Stay tuned, lots more interesting discoveries to be made.
Our day on The Road of Retirment has come to an end. Not much happening today in real time. We refilled our propane tank. Finally fixed the outside water leak in the wet bay. Played another round of dominoes. The rest of the day we just sat back and kept cool.
On the lighter side.
Thank you for joining us today. We always appreicate your company and comments. See you tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Elvira and it’s two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.
See you on down the road!
