Gopher & I took one last early morning walk around Tubec. Mostly it was us and the garbage guys & the food delivery trucks. Took a few last pictures.
Today's destination is the Patagonia State Park, east of Nogales near Patagonia. The GPS picked out a scenic back-road planned to keep us off I-19. We were cruising along just fine until a sign appeared saying "pavement ends in 1,000'". I've driven on dirt roads before so not to worry. Well. The road got narrower & bumpier the further I went. Not knowing how much narrower or bumpier it got I decided to cut my losses and back up. There wasn't enough road to turn around.
Finally I just got back on I-19. Boring but predictable.
Patagonia Lake is the only body of water we've seen for quite a while. It's a man-made lake used for irrigation & drinking water. $25/night for a site with water & electric. Our site gives us a partial view of the lake. The Park has a marina with boat rentals. This is probably a popular summer camping area.
