The Havasu area is now a boating mecca on the lake an a off road mecca in the surrounding Chocolate Mountains. Since we have a Jeep we were able to take advantage of the trails. While playing golf at a fantastic desert golf course, Emerald Canyon, the Canadians I played with told me about a Jeep trail that ends at an old mining town and now is home of the Desert Bar. On the way to the trail we were met by a few wild burros. They stand in the road hoping you will stop and feed them. This same thing has happened to us in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Once past the burros we took off on the trail to the Desert Bar. There is only one sign on the trail to let you know you are on the right trail. It is only open from noon to six on Saturday and Sundays from October thru April, The 6 mile trail was rough but the views were great. Once we arrived at the bar we were amazed at how big the place was and how many people were there. There is a full service bar, an outdoor grill that serves burgers and hot dogs, and a full service kitchen that has nachos, wraps and other bar food. But maybe the biggest surprise was the live music by an eight piece band, who were very entertaining. All of this is solar powered.
I know a lot of you are now getting your first taste of warmer weather, it is no different here as the temps reached near 100 degrees in the middle of the week. The best way to deal with it was batten down the hatches on the RV and turn on the AC. Then go hit the pool, or go down to the lake and have a drink at one of the floating restaurants. Our favorite was the Road Runner.
Next stop Las Vegas!
