Our host Bonnie runs the trailer park and ranch here. It's a kind of an interesting place, and the trailer park area feels like you're parked up in someone's big backyard. We like it here!
It turns out that Bonnie's father was from South Dakota. Way back when, he married a Mexican lady (Delia, I assume!) and bought this ranch. Over the years, he leased building lots to other Americans and now there are 16 homes built on the ranch, most of them used only in the winter. It's still early, so I think only two of them are currently occupied. And Bonnie says the RV area has been here for at least twenty years.

But it's a farming and ranching area, so it's not the type of place a lot of RV'ers would make a point of coming to. But we like it, and it turns out there's a lot to see and do in the surrounding area. Bonnie took us into town in her car to show us around, and it's a bigger town than I had thought. They even have a baseball diamond, and their team plays every Sunday so we're thinking we'll stick around longer than originally planned. And there's a lookout on a nearby hill on the other side of town, so we're going to hike up there this morning.
We were wandering around the property and came across these friendly donkeys.

Daily rate here is 150 pesos ($11.70) for full hookups including electricity. We don't need any hookups so we made a deal at 100 pesos per night ($7.80). We're the first customers of the season, and there are no other RV's here.
Sherman is happy here!
Bonnie and her two daughters. Notice the dogs...there are six of them living here, so we get to give them all lots of affection!
This guy was quick to take a liking to us. Can't remember his name, but he's such a friendly guy!
Trying to do some reading, but he just wanted to be petted!
So this morning we're going to go do that hike up to the lookout. Bonnie is going to drive us into town because she works with weight loss patients at the local gym. Then we'll do the hike and maybe do some shopping before taking a taxi back here. It's not far, we would walk it if we didn't have to pick up some groceries. Besides, taxis are cheap here.
