Grand Canyon Railway RV Park

Tags: , , , , ,

This park is a really nice park for catching the train to the Grand Canyon.  The spaces are many and are quite close together.  Although it did provide us a quiet place to sleep with full hookups, including cable TV.  There were mostly pull-through sites, which quite easily accommodated our rig, which is quite long.

Leaving Bullhead City

Tags: , ,

All the time we were in Bullhead City we had heard about a rock formation that was up in the mountains east of Bullhead City.  We went to lunch with a neighbor and when driving to the country club they tried to show us the rock formation.  We could see it from a distance, but […]

On Our Way

The day is almost here.  Tomorrow we’re on our way! We got nearly all of our maintenance things done yesterday.  Early this morning we finished and waited for the mobile RV techs to get here.  It was their job to replace the leaking grey tank, replace all the insulation under the floor, and button it […]

Silver View RV Resort

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Silver View RV Resort sits up on a bluff overlooking the Colorado River and the town of Laughlin, NV.  The lights of the casinos out our back window really are stunning sight. Neither of us have spent time in the desert, so maybe it’s like this everywhere, but the wind blew like I’ve never seen […]

Colorado River

The Colorado River is a central theme in this valley. Across the river is Laughlin, NV, with casinos from the Tropicana to the Pioneer to Harrah’s.  Despite there being one bridge across the river, there are boats running every few minutes, ferrying hopefuls over to Laughlin and the winners and losers back across to Bullhead […]

Poki …

Tags: , ,

… the desert tortoise. I don’t think that it’s any secret that Bullhead City is in the middle of the desert. Apparently there are real, live, desert tortoises somewhere in the general area.  Bullhead City residents can even adopt a desert tortoise from the fish and game department to actually care for one. The above […]

Mining

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

This area has a rich history in gold and silver mining.  The town of Oatman is a testament to that history.  Today, Oatman is largely a tourist town where people can go spend money in gallery type shops, watch a gunfight, and look at the wild burros that wander around in town looking for a […]
