|We drove from Phoenix to Bullhead City today. We drove through some amazing scenery. The road was called, "Joshua Tree Pkwy." It had some amazing Joshua trees and a few saguaro, but these are getting more and more scarce as we drive north.
We made it to Bullhead City around 5:00 and called Chuck McCombs (John McCombs' dad), who winters here. We bar-b-qued some delicious frozen sockeye salmon that we've been finding at various grocery stores. It was delicious! Almost as good as at home.
It was great to see Chuck. He drove us over to his home, not far from where our park was. We got a grand tour of his winter house - very nice! - the kids got to drive his golf cart - Yikes!- and we got a grand tour of his pool area/club house. There's just about everything here that any person would need to stay active and involved. It was great!
Bullhead City is on the Colorado River, with Laughlin, NV on the other side. The kids (and us) were amazed by the huge casinos rising out of the desert! They looked busy, too! Must be a gambling destination.
