... hot showers. This is a very popular park for the snowbirds that come down in the winter and leave April 1. It is in a windy area and we were warned driving up interstate 10 to be careful about the desert winds. There is a visitor center with some exhibits and a gift shop. The area is known for its wildlife viewing and bird watching. We had electric but no water and the cost was $25 plus a $5 reservation fee. Very interesting overnight ...

One of the most interesting things that I learned about Pluto was that for about 20 years for 1979-1999 it was actually closer to the sun the Neptune was. Apparently every 200 hundred years or so its orbit takes it inside of Neptune. Anyhow other cities I have checked out in addition are Sedona and Prescott.
