Another hike started fairly close to where we were camped, so I did the Standard Wash trail down to the shore of the lake, apparently a 9 mile round trip. There are no signs or markers, but the trail description made it easy to find.
This time of year, the restlessness sets in, and a few days in any one spot is enough!
With only two directions to choose from at Lake Havasu, the coin flip chose south this time. We headed down to Parker, then west, then south to join I-10 at Desert Center. Friends Don & Donna were planning to check out the BLM area just on the south boundary of Joshua National Park so we stopped by and found them right away. That area was very busy with lots of rigs and more coming in off the interstate or out of the park in the evening.
We all headed into the Park one day and hiked the Mastodon Mine trail in the Cottonwoos Springs area. The flowers were all in bloom, and lots of cameras were out.
