This was an interim stop before heading to Quartzsite for the big RV show. Didn't really know where we wanted to go, but this seemed like a good spot. The park is right on the Colorado River. We were in Site C-3. This park is arranged kind of odd. There are sites going in different directions and most of them back up to another. They are tight both side-to-side and back-to-back. When we backed in to set up, the couple behind us came out of there pickup camper telling us that we were too close. I pulled the RV back up a bit, but anymore and I would have been out in the road. That was a bit unsettling, but they left the next morning. It would be okay for 3 days. We drove into Blythe to look around and had lunch at Popeyes Chicken.

That night and most of the next day it rained. The roads through the park are dirt, so there was mud everywhere. It stopped just before dark so we decided to walk around the park a bit. As we were walking we heard two owls calling to each other. We found them in two different trees. One was a female and she hunkered down in the crook of her tree probably on a nest. While we were standing there watching the owls, another couple walked over to watch. Tim and Mary Beth were from Pittsburgh and this was their first time out as RVers. They are a very nice couple and we enjoyed visiting. Best travels to you!!

Also a very Happy 44th Birthday to our wonderful son, Michael!! We love you very much!

On Wednesday we drove over to Quartzsite to see how things were for the big show. We checked out our favorite spot to see if it was available. To our dismay someone else had 'our' spot. Oh well, we really didn't like driving on the extremely rough road to get there. We found an even better spot closer into town and hoped that it would still be there the next day when we moved to Quartzsite. We were really overwhelmed with all of the RVs in the desert!! Unbelievable!!

When we returned to Blythe, we drove out into the desert to see the Blythe Intaglios. "The Blythe Intaglios or Blythe Geoglyphs are a group of gigantic figures incised on the ground near Blythe, California in the Colorado Desert. The ground drawings or geoglyphs were created by humans for an, as of yet, unknown reason." After viewing the intaglios, we drove way back into the desert and went 4-wheeling. We got 6 or 7 caches while we were out there as well. It was finally a warm and beautiful day!
