Anthem Outlet Mall

Aloha Everyone,

It was cold this morning. 35 degrees even as the sunlight helped burn off the low clouds. J.J. and I discussed whether to go to Flagstaff, but we decided that it would be more prudent for us to drive south. Flagstaff at 7200 feet may get more snow later this week.

Anthem Outlet Mall is located in the city of Anthem about 35 mikes north of Phoenix off I-17. A beautiful shopping mall which JJ and I have previously been to. Though Christmas trees and decorations adorned the premises giving it a festive air, we noticed that nearly 1/3 of the retail spaces were vacant.

A good place to get our daily walking exercise. Our lunch at Famous Wok at the food court was healthy for me and satisfying for J.J.

Our stay for the night is at Pioneer RV Resort that promotes itself as an RV and 55+ Community. Per the park map given, I counted  a total of 583 sites. Compared to Distant Drum RV Resort in Camp Verde where there was a wonderful ambiance to our site, this place is a flat vast desert landscape which has been transformed into an RV park. No free WiFi and no trees. It makes this place a one night visit for Honu.

Aloha -- Cathi
