The Southwestern Sojourn - Days 50 & 51 An Unlisted BLM site and Rain

Monday, JAN 14Decided the Painted Rock Petroglyph had become a bit crowded for me as more RVs had taken up residence.During Sunday's riding, I'd found some seemingly suitable spots along Rocky Point Road, on BLM land (according the map provided by with good cell signal.I packed up Uma the URRV and dragging Scarlett along on her trailer, we left the campground and found us a good spot perhaps 5-6 miles west on Rocky Point Road.  Looking east, you can see the hills near the Petrog...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 48: Gila Bend Museum and other sights

This morning, I rode Scarlett the 25 miles or so to the nearby highway junction town of Gila Bend after a pretty good sunrise: The town, as I understand it, has basically been the junction point of travel technologies over the history of the region.  From wagons, to trains, and now auto highways, Gila Bend, has functioned as a meeting point.I got some groceries and then toured the museum at the city's visitor center.It's a small museum, basically contained in one large room that is part...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 47: Painted Rock Petroglyph Campground, Day 2

Decided to hang out another day at the campground after all.  It promised to be a sunny and warm day with some clouds.Dawn came and while started clear, a low layer of fog moved through the valley as I waited for the sun to show itself.  It made for some nice lighting in spite of the lack of clouds overhead: As the fog grew thicker, it made the nearby hills and distant peaks appear to be afloat on clouds.  Oatman Mountain  The fog got higher and partially blocked the sun as it finally...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 45: Maintenance Day

A cloudy day with wind making the temperatures which reached the mid-60s seem cooler.Still the clouds made for a nice sunrise: Found there were tasks to be done on Scarlett, the 2014 Ural Sidecar Rig and I spent some time at the hardware store in nearby Florence, AZ sourcing the right bolt.One of the two bolts which held the starter motor in place had fallen off and I noticed it this morning.  I think I failed to secure it properly while working on the failed clutch parts last month.  Sigh....

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 44: Checking out Cottonwood Canyon

Today was the day to ride Scarlett to see what lay to the east along Cottonwood Canyon Road.Turns out, I didn't get very far.One road turned out to be blocked, there's apparently some kind of livestock operation behind locked gates.Further on, the road got bad really fast....and I wasn't up to a kidney busting ride today and so I stopped early on for this picture. Going back to the fork in the road, I took the one on the right instead and wound up stopped by the entrance to an open pit quarry...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 43: Miami

Jan 07Miami, Arizona that is.  More on this name in a bit. After two days of overcast skies, I woke to a clear sky! Having spent my teenage years in Miami, FL....I tend to notice when other locales are named the same, such as the one in Ohio.Today I rode Scarlett over to US Highway 60 and headed east towards the town of Miami, passing Superior along the way and turning around eventually at Globe, AZ. Copper Boomtown Miami  Catholic Shrine by the Miami welcome sign How the town got ...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 28: Merry Christmas!

Christmas Day in Las Vegas. Definitely different than our life in Colorado.First, a pretty cloudy but nice sunrise: Martha and I then drove the rental car over to the Mob Museum, which proved to be OK but you really have to be interested in the Mob itself.  We were kind of hoping more for the Mob's history with Las Vegas. Not a lot to photograph really, lots of photos of criminals, some videos, a display of a "speakeasy" of the Prohibition days (an event which helped grow the mob inmense...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 22: Death Valley National Park

Woke early as usual when camping and shot the sunrise from the Dry Lake Bed BLM site near Boulder City, NV.I must remember to try to park Uma, the URRV, pointing either north or south....makes for better sunrise/sunset pics. I left the site right at 9 AM and hoping the morning rush with Las Vegas traffic had ended by then.  Transiting the Vegas metro area via the I-215 beltway proved relatively painless, with no traffic jams.Drove without incidence all the way to the planned BLM spot but ...

Sunsetwx had forecasted good Sunrise conditions for this morning.  I woke even before my alarmat 6:15AM and leisurely made coffee while awaiting the pre-dawn color show.I'm glad to report sunsetwx got this one right.After work, with the weather remaining overcast and cool, I went to check out the Quartzsite Museum in town.  It's a little place, filled with your typical pioneer day and later paraphenalia of life in the southwest.The building is the old stagecoach stop, now surrounded by a brick o...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 16: Crystal Hill and Cunningham Mountain

Thursday, Dec 13.Not much of a sunrise for today: After work, I rode out to Crystal Hill, which is within the Kofa Wildlife Refuge Area to the south of Quartzsite, AZ.The hill is known to "rockhounds" as a place to search for quartz crystals apparently, I did see many of such crystals but had no inclination to bring any home.I took AZ Hwy 95 south for a few miles, and turned east at the turn for Crystal Hill.  After a few miles, you reach a welcome sign for the Kofa Wildlife Refuge and once pas...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 14 & 15 Travel Days

Dec 11Didn't do any riding, just broke camp and left the Gunsite Wash BLM area near Why AZ and headed north on AZ Hwy 85.Filled up the propane tank (6.7 gal) in a gas station in Ajo, AZ and then just motored up to I-10 to head west towards Quartzsite.  I didn't go all the way there, as I decided to stop at a RV park called Snowbirds West, located to the north of the junction of I-10 and exit 69.  Not much else there, though apparently the area is named Centennial.The RV park is very "rustic".  N...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 12: The Ajo Peaks

Ajo: Spanish for Garlic.  Wikipedia says  The Spanish may have named the place using the familiar word in place of the similar-sounding  O'odham  word for paint ( oʼoho ). The  Tohono O'odham  people obtained red paint  pigments from the area. Today, instead of going back to the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, I decided instead to ride to the nearby Ajo Peaks; Ajo and North Ajo Peak respectively.I could see North Ajo Peak from my BLM campsite and its shape was "intriguing".   North Ajo ...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 11: Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, AZ

I woke late but still managed to get some decent sunrise pics as I cooked breakfast. I broke camp at a leisurely pace, letting the morning sun dry the ground up a bit before I left the site.  No issues leaving, though the tires could be heard shedding clumps of mud once I got up to speed on pavement!I took AZ 86 towards the settlement of Why, yes, Why, AZ.  You then turn on US85 south and about a mile down the road you turn off for the Gunsite Wash BLM site:  GPS: 32.238056,-112.751396. ...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 10: Rained In

Woke to cloudy skies and foggy conditions, so not much of a sunrise to try and catch.After breakfast and some work, I walked up Snyder Hill which gives its name to the BLM site I'm camping on.  Up there you could really see how the fog made the nearby hills looked like they were wreathed in the clouds: From the top of the hill, I could see over to the western side of the BLM site, as I mentioned before, there were way more RVs located on this side for whatever reason. I prefer the east...

Dec 5: Indian Bread BLMLeft the Lake Holloman, NM BLM site early and spent the day traveling to the next site. Sunrise at Lake Holloman The weather was sunny and warm as I drove the URRV towards the border with Arizona.  However, as I neared the Indian Bread BLM site near Bowie, AZ, the clouds became overcast and it felt chillier.Got set up, only two neighbors quite a ways from the site I picked, which was the same site I used last year.  A creature of habit I am, apparently, must break that p...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Days 4 & 5 Monticello Point and Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks

Saturday, Dec 1.Day 4A non-travel day, I spent it instead Uraling around, doing some errands and just generally checking out the area.  I woke early as usual when camping, and managed to capture a pretty nice sunrise at the Monticello Point BLM site I'd stayed at last year. About ten miles from exit 92, and after about 8 miles of them being packed dirt, I arrived at Mitchell Point and the Rock House that's located there.  Can't really find much info about this location, but it is n...
