One week after we took possession of our Winnebago, we were on the road for our first RV trip. Arizona weather is usually sunny and warm in mid-February, but not this year. The original plan was to go north toward Cottonwood, but the weather was forecast to be well below freezing with snow possible, then turning to cold flooding rain. We opted instead to head south to Picacho Peak KOA near Tucson. We arrived Friday afternoon to rain and muddy puddles but we were able to get everything set up and working before our travel companions arrived. We spent the rest of the afternoon chatting, eating, and enjoying some adult beverages, before preparing the beds for the night.
The rain cleared later in the evening and morning arrived sunny and cold. We were able to explore the park and take a few photos. The staff at reception were friendly and very helpful. The restrooms and showers were very clean, and there was internet available. By late morning, we set up chairs and relaxed in the sunshine. It turned out to be a great time despite the weather and plan changes. The first journey went well, teaching us a lot along the way.
