Crystal Hill Hike

More Hiking

We decided to take a turn into the Kofa Wildlife Refuge that was on the road a few miles before the Palm Canyon turnoff.  It led to Crystal Hill on a long washboard road.  It was even further than the Palm Canyon Road which was about 7 miles.

At one time there was a campground back there, but only saw one camper.  The road is pretty rough so getting a rig back there would cause a lot of shaking of everything inside.

Here we are all making our ascent to the peak.

We all made it to the top.  It was a very nice view.

On our descent we ran into this very small cactus.

Also got a few flower pics but there weren’t too many flowers in bloom.

We also found this old mine that had been blocked off so that you couldn’t enter it.

It was a great hike and all 12 of us (and 2 dogs) enjoyed it.  The road was very dusty going to and from and my Sami is now covered in dust both inside and out.  Another GREAT day in Quartzsite.
