One of the items we purchased in Quartzsite at a RV accessory supplier was this sun shade that attaches to the awning. This actually works better than I thought it would because it is very hard to see through from the outside thus giving us a nice almost private screen room, I say almost because there are no sides. Anyway it keeps the area under the awning completely shaded.

We toured the Yuma Territorial Prison today. The prison was in operation from 1876 until 1909. A total of 3,069 prisoners lived there including 29 women during this time.

A look into the cell area
Up to six prisons shared a cell with nothing but a bible and a pot for a toilet

Here are just a few of the female prisoners that lived here.
