We have left Laughlin, NV, and Bullhead City, AZ, and moved on down the road about an hour to the Lake Havasu City area.
Craggy Wash is a free dispersed primitive camping area provided by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) where we stayed when we were in this area last year. There are several others here with us but room for lots more.
The road goes into the hills about three miles with plenty of level parking on both sides of the road all the way to the end. There are a few people here with off-road vehicles running around in the hills, but it’s mostly quiet here. Big-horn sheep are said to be in the area, so we keep our eyes open for them too. And wild burros.
We are parked about one mile in, and then went for a walk and met some other Minnesotans, which is not unusual at all. It’s been a beaultiful day, about 75F and sunny.
Spring has sprung, almost. The desert floor, which has been brown all winter, is beginning to turn green and wild flowers are beginning to pop up. It seems early for that, but what do I know? I’m from frozen Minnesota.
