Dec 10, 2011 - Our first few days in Brenda AZ

We arrived in Brenda AZ on Tuesday, Dec 6 just before 5pm. It took us just over 3 hours to make the trip. The spaces here are smaller than what we had in Needles but there is still plenty of room for our vehicles and ATV. We don't have any pics of our site quite yet but we will soon.

We camped in the town of Brenda at Black Rock RV Village. This place came with high recommendations from friends of ours.
