Don’t get excited, it’s not what I think you are thinking. SARA stands for Special Activities And Recreation Area. It’s a regional park a few miles out of Lake Havasu City that has many activities including baseball and softball fields, a BMX track, a raceway, a shooting range, a place to fly model airplanes, a 2-acre dog park, a Rodeo area, and lots of hiking trails. Lots of stuff…even hockey.
SARA’s Crack is more appropriately known as Crack-in-the Mountain. It’s a scenic hiking trail down a desert wash to a slot canyon. It’s cloudy today and there is some rain in the forecast, but don’t think it will be enough rain to worry us about being in a wash.
The trail through the wash got narrower and narrower and leads to a series of dry falls through the crack. One of the falls is a 7-footer and there is a rope there to help you get down it. This is where we turned back.
It did not rain on us while we were hiking, but I could feel it in the air. And then it did sprinkle a little while after we returned to the motor home. It’s about 65-70F, and there is no wind.
