From Congress to Wickieup

Hi everyone,
 Who says nothing gets done in Congress? We are enjoying our stay in Congress, AZ and are quite impressed with the area.
This is the seventh Escapee (SKP) park we have been to and the one thing we find is they are all different.
 This one has an area in the front for open camping and a huge subdivision in the rear (over 400 sites). The subdivision lots are a mix of RV sites to elaborate adobe homes. Close to the middle is a good size activity center.

  The people really take pride in their places with immaculate landscaping. It is a very nice place to walk and bicycle around.They also have a very well done cactus garden and some of the cactus are beginning to bloom.

  The park is located about 4 miles from Congress AZ which has a Post Office, a small grocery store and one gas station. Better shopping and dining is 12 miles south in Wickenburg, AZ. It also has some nice specialty shops and a cowboy museum.
 We took a drive the other day on the Joshua Tree Scenic Byway. It was about a 70 mile drive on Hwy 93 up to Wickieup, AZ.

 We were amazed yet again as not expecting to see these crazy looking trees in AZ. It was neat as they are intermixed with saguaros for part of the drive. The only bad part it is on a busy 65 mph highway and pull offs are few. You would think it a great place for a park somewhere.- I know there is a Joshua Tree National Park but it is in California.
