On the way to our next destination, we settled into a boondocking site for a couple of nights at the North Ranch Escapees Park in Congress, Arizona. It is located about 16 miles north of Wickenburg.
This Escapees park is a co-op, which means people own their own lots and use them or rent them out if they are gone. Many lots had a park model, while there were still a lot unoccupied as many travelers had already left for the season. The clubhouse was spacious. There were multiple rooms, one of which had a television, a seating area, and a table with a jigsaw puzzle in process. Mostly cactus and yucca plants were visible throughout the park. In the distance, one can see the mountains.
Cactus Flowers and Yucca Plants
The cactus flowers and several tall yucca plants were fascinating to me.

Pickle Ball was a favorite activity at this park.

It was at one corner of the park, so it was a nice long walk to reach it. There were some tennis and other balls in the fenced area, so he had fun running and fetching the balls. They were scattered all over. As he finished playing, he picked up each one and moved it to an area shaded with a three-sided lattice that provided shade. In one corner of the doggie run, there was a water spigot with a stainless steel bowl under it. At first he wasn’t sure he wanted to drink, but with a little coaxing after I put my hand under the spigot, he decided to take a drink.
Candid Shots of Angel
Angel is a very good traveler. He has his routine, and adjusts very well to ours as well. When it comes to pictures, he plays hard to get. However, I have managed to get some photos.
