A few weeks ago, we drove along the Colorado River to Lake Havasu, which is about 70 miles from Quartzsite on Hwy. 95. On the north side of the city is a new shopping plaza with major stores like Dillards and JC Penney that are now opening. About a mile further north on Hwy 95 is Craggy Wash, which is a two- week free boondocking area. We are still camped in the CRA campground but visited Craggy Wash and beyond to check for Escapee stickers to see if any old or new friends were there. No, we didn’t find any. Most SKP’s have moved north but we decided to put the green toad in four- wheel drive and explore.
The camping spots are quite flat but further down the trail the area is “craggy.” It amazes me how rocks are so varied in appearance with only slight changes in color. I know part of the reason is how the light hits them.
Pictured are the Road Runner that we saw and some migrating butterflies. There are hundreds of orange butterflies flying north but it is difficult to catch them on camera.
