Susie and I had intended to return to Indiana for our fifth summer at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Resort in Fremont, but early in 2015 we switched to plan B. We are staying in Mesa, Arizona, at Val Vista Villages, where we have been working during the winter.
Our decision involved much discussion and prayer because we both desire to follow God's will for us. We intend to pay off some bills and avoid the very expensive trip to Indiana and back. God has given us a good income here that should also help us reach our goal.
I really like this area of the country. This summer I hope to finish a novel I'm writing that's set not far from where we live. We are exploring the country and its history when we have free time. The temperature is already creeping into the mid 90's, and we'll see plenty of days when it will exceed 100 degrees.
I want to share a few photos of what we see out here as we wander around the Mesa area.
