This being our 3rd trip up to Lost Dutchman State Park this year, we’ll just call this post part 1 of 3.

On this trip we met up with some fellow Arizonians and Airstreamers  Courtney and Steve of AStreaminLife on YouTube. Click here to see AStreaminLife’s beautiful video of the weekend.

They drove up from their Tucson location to meet up with us, Northern Star Travelers, at Lost Dutchman State Park for a short weekend getaway before Christmas…

Although a cold front moved into Arizona that week we still really enjoyed Courtney and Steve and their fur babies Patty and Penny. We took a hike then headed into town… A ghost town I mean… Yeah a bit touristy but it made for a fun afternoon without spending any money… Except for a couple of beers. They got some great video footage and photos. too.
