Road Runner BLM, Quartzsite, Arizona
A beautiful morning, a talk with my sister and around 10 am we headed off in the Little Black Limo for a jeep ride into the Kofa's but this time on King Valley Road. Our goal was the Horse Tank, Grey Tanks, Arch Tank and Bandy Tank.
The ride was good, the road was good for the most part. A bit of a bumpy ride when we turned off of King Valley Road onto #42. A little up and down, over and around, and oh my .... before we reached our destination.
To view Horse Tanks you need to walk a short distance and this is where Riley and Deb D turned around. Tom and I continued on reaching all of the tanks. The hike was a bit on the rugged side but very doable for sure footed folks. Plenty of cement work to make a few of the tanks, a few pipes and a lot of mother natures help.
Back in the jeep we headed off again on King Valley Road but decided we should turn around as we didn't think we could make it all the way through. The only draw back to camping in some of the areas is little to no cell service however closer to the road the service is excellent and there are still lots of nice places to park.
We reached AZ/US 95 and headed into Q. We decided we'd try the other pizza place in town, The Outback. We found it tucked in across from the Pilot truck center. A bit different and we were a little skeptical at first but the pizza proved to be quite good, the atmosphere was wonderful, we could hear ourselves talk. We stopped before reaching the pizza place to gather up Doug and take him along. It was decided we would all go back to this place in the future, we enjoyed it. Back home shortly after 4 pm and we called it a day.
The sun is shining and the wind is slowly picking up, a wind advisory is in effect for tomorrow from 11 - 8 MST. I think we've all agreed we are tired of the wind! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the visit. These are only a few photos of our ride, I will post more in the next few days.
Until next time......
Take care, stay safe,
