Over the years, North Ranch has become perhaps less an RV Park and more a 55+ residential community. There are still overnight sites available for traveling SKPs, but the majority of sites are owner occupied at least part of the year, and are not available for renting out during the owner's absence.
North Ranch is a more sophisticated (our word for it) park than ours, in that there are better streets, with rolling curbs, a higher level of landscaping, and certainly a higher level of residential buildings. Some of the homes are stick built, others are true park models (as opposed to our park trailers). A lot of them are as nice a home as you would find in some of the better suburban neighborhoods. Yet there are some totally vacant lots, and we saw at least one site with a trailer on it, with the lot grown over with weeds.

Mike and Pat were shopping in Prescott when we arrived, but Mike had sent us excellent directions, as well as alerting some of the neighbors that we would be coming in. By the time we had settled in, Mike and Pat drove up with big Escapees Hugs for us. An hour later we were at their home for Happy Hour.

On our three-day site,and in several other locations, we saw these cactuses (cacti?) that are different from any we have ever seen at our own park, although there are many varieties there.
Happy Easter to all from Jerry and Suzy, once again out and about in ... Our Life on Wheels!
