Potato Patch & Prescott – May 11


We needed to be in Flagstaff on May 12. We also were in great need of supplies and clean laundry. 

We could do our laundry at the KOA in Flagstaff, but we decided to go to Prescott for supplies. It was great to be able to go to a Costco and World Market. 

We planned taking US Highway 89A to Flagstaff. Last year, we wanted to spend a day in Sedona, but there were forest fires. 
After consulting our maps and the Ultimate Campground app, we headed to the Mingus Mountain Area in Prescott National Forest. 

We saw a pronghorn on our drive up there. It was only the second time we had seen them on this trip so far. I really miss seeing them. We had seen large numbers of them on our last couple of trips out west. We passed by a small herd of Mule Deer in the National Forest. 
We made our way to the Potato Patch campground. 


It has a small RV only loop that wasn’t much more than a parking lot. It had only one RV in it.  The campground has a bigger loop that is set among trees and the campsites and more spread out. There wasn’t anyone camping in the bigger loop. 
We found a great campsite on the bigger loop. While I set up inside and walked around taking photos, Jon collected firewood that had been left at some of the other sites. Some of the pieces were too long, so he used a saw to cut them up. 

You can just make out Jon sawing up wood in the background.  
We had a wonderful campfire, a great dinner, and a very quiet night.
