A Quiet Stroll in the Desert
Although it has been quite breezy and cool here, this is sure a beautiful area to spend some time. This spot is a 7 day camping spot, but because there are not a lot of people here, we are going to stay until Friday which will be 10 days. If people start to move in and need spots we will move on.
Charlie and I went for a nice walk this morning up into the hills. The weather is great for walks in that it in neither too hot nor too cold. I should be doing way more walking than I do. This nice wash goes straight up toward the hills from our campsite. That's us under tree #2.
There is always something to see when you walk and today we saw the signs of cactus starting to bloom. The desert can be a pretty place when in bloom, but we normally miss it because we are on our way north by then.
There are lots of smoke trees around here, which I haven’t seen before. They are apparently in the process of trying to regrow the ones around here so have lots of areas fenced off. They are called smoke trees because they look like a smoke plume in the distance.
After lunch we headed into Bull Head City to do laundry and to pick up some supplies for a project I am doing tomorrow. We had to strap a sheet of panelling to the roof to get it home. I will tell you about that tomorrow.
It wasn’t long after that when Chuck and Angela showed up. They are going to spend a bit of time with us before we head farther north and they head west to California.
The view out our window tonight was as nice as usual.
