We had been looking at this hill close to us ever since we got here. Apparently, the thing to do is climb to the top of it. Don’t know why other than there is a little log book for anybody that makes it up there to sign.
We actually got an early start and were out the door by NINE O’CLOCK in the morning!! Mike and Janna were leaving so we had to get out early. We drove the cars to the bottom of the hill and then started the hike up to the top.
It started out easy enough
We even got to see some sheep
The little white building at the top is halfway
We made it!!
So did Jim & Ellie
And so did Mike & Janna (with Emmie)
Looking back down where we left the cars at the bottom
What a beautiful view from up on top (those little dots are where we’re camped)
Then we had to eventually come back down
This cave was on the other side of the mountain but we decided since we didn’t know what was in there we weren’t going inside. Sure didn’t want to come upon a coyote den.
Today Rod and I decided to head out to Parker Dam since neither one of us had been there before. Parker Dam is 320 feet high, 235 feet of which are below the riverbed, making it the deepest dam in the world with only one quarter of it actually above water. It was built between 1934 and 1938. You can no longer walk across it but you can still drive on it.
Tomorrow we’re headed back up to Lake Havasu City for Rod’s last dentist appointment. Our time here is getting short and we’re going to be sad to leave here but we need to start heading back to Texas by April for doctor appointments. After that we can take off for the summer!
I will leave you with some of the gorgeous sunsets we’ve been enjoying here.
This is called a parhelion or sundog. Pretty cool.
