I think this photo was from my first day camping in Flagstaff back in spring 2014. This particular camping area is near the Naval Observatory and is one of my “go to” sites when I’m in the area, as it’s the closest to town. Not this exact site of course — there are over a dozen campsites completely separate campsites out here, and I’ve seen as many as 20 vehicles parked on certain days. I have my own dependable “semi-secret” site that I enjoy for its solitude.

I don’t remember the precise details of this photo, but there are clues…
It’s likely from my first visit to Cottonwood – where there’s a Home Depot – a few days before I rebuilt my roof, which is missing in the photo!
The extension cord suggests I might be recharging my house battery from the engine, which would make sense, because my second DIY solar panel got damaged by the tarp melting onto it before I had a change to glass it in. By the time I got to Sedona a spat of rain had shorted it out in a way I couldn’t fix.
And that campsite was my “go to” back when it was pretty much the only one I knew about at the time. 🙂
