Journal entry – 17 Jan 2016, Sun – Hiking in the Desert

Pulled our mountain bikes off the rack to head up the trail behind the RV. It quickly turned into loose sand/gravel (sand in the desert, whoda thunk it!) so we turned around and went down to the main road. Just across Hwy 95 is a parking area for a scenic view. You can spot the Colorado River/Havasu Lake in between the hills. We thought we’d hike down and see what it looks like up close.

The hike was much longer than anticipated! But sooo worth it! We stumbled on a little beach area – it looked like a tropical beach, tucked into the desert! Who would have imagined! It was really beautiful. Ashley waded into the water for a few moments, before the cold ran her back out.

Eventually we hiked back home for a late lunch.
