This is what’s great about our lifestyle, we can change our minds whenever we want. Our plan was to leave this morning and move south, but we decided we wanted to walk the trail called the Whytes Retreat Trail. It begins at Cattail Cove State Park and follows the shoreline of Lake Havasu on the lower portion of the Colorado River.
The trail begins down by the boat landing and heads south along the coast. It was about 65 degrees with a light breeze. The humidity was high and some morning fog lingered.
Not petroglyphs, but years of carvings by hikers.
The trail leads to Whytes Retreat, one of the boat-in campsites provided by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Nobody there today. There are several other trails going off in different directions. We decided to return the way we came.
After lunch we sat outside for a while and enjoyed the weather. Some ducks came over to say hello.
At the same time a bevy of Gambel’s quail came running in our direction. They are so comical.
We spent the evening watching Back to the Future DVD’s. You know when they go into the future they go to October 21, 2015. That’s very close. Where’s my flying car???
