We used our free time exploring, hiking and birding on the refuge and the surrounding Trigo Mountains... All in all a pretty wonderful way to spend a couple of months.

On our days off we took trips to the annual Quartzite RV show, the Blythe Intaglios, Parker Dam, Imperial Sand Dunes, Imperial NWR, Kofa NWR, Yuma and Los Algodones, Mexico ...
In Los Algodones, I had some dental work done. Here is that story. A couple of years ago, I had a root canal done in Boulder, CO that was never quite right and I had a constant low tooth ache. So, while having a routine cleaning done by Dr. Eva Urena I asked her about it. She referred me to Dr. Hernandez an endodontist. After conferring with him it was determined that the original root canal had missed one of the roots he also found that some packing had been left in the tooth.

At the end our stay we “hooked up” with friends and fellow RVers Hal and Lois Leslie and took trips to Castle Dome Ghost Town and Museum and the History of the World in Granit site just west of Yuma and another visit to Los Algodones...

and of course the Lettuce Festival...
So we come to an end…Cibola was the last of our volunteering. Over the past 6 years we have volunteered at Ridgway State Park in Co, Galveston Island State Park in Texas, spent 3 years volunteering at Glacier National Park and the past January and February at Cibola. We have enjoyed each experience and have learned a ton. The best part has been all the great people we have met and the many good friends we have made. We feel very privileged to have been offered so many great opportunities to “give back”. Yet, it is time pack away our volunteer badges.
