After Borrego Springs we wanted to go to Las Vegas, but then we don’t like to drive for that many hours, so we stopped temporarily at Quartzsite, AZ on the way up…
This catch up post is to February 7th…
At the campsite we saw the GoodYear Blimp.
Above our trailer.
It did not stop Pierre from eating.
We had also heard about the fiberglass trailer get together at Quartzsite and we visited but decided it was too crowed for us to stay there this time.
The beautiful Arizona Sunset.
To Las Vegas and the Red Rock Campground. This has no services but it does have pit toilets so staying long does not involve filling our black tank.
We met up with Jim and Tammie and they took us to the Liberty Bell Arch Trail.
There is an abandoned mine in the area (filled in) and above is one of the objects from the mine.
I became distracted when the hawk hovered overhead.
Linda and Tammie found a small section of the mine that had not been filled in.
Linda near the beginning of the trail.
Our first real view of the arch.
The natural arch resembles the Liberty Bell including the clapper.
Once past the arch there is a steep climb to a vista point where the Colorado River looks beautiful.
The panorama does no justice to the view…we could even see where the trail led to the Arizona Hot springs…we’d done that hike a few years ago.
I found this conglomerate rock intriguing.
The two bridges…natural and man made.
That night we were treated to Wayne Newton, Mr. Las Vegas…The show was great!
More hiking to come.
