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.
Sara at the top with the mountains in the background.
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.
That is a great hike. We did it last year. Did you find any crystals? We found a few.
I didn’t but one of the other hikers did.

I am always amazed at how flowers can grow in the most unlikely of places. Determination and tenacity will win!!
