"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

The Desert Bar


We departed Kofa NWR on Saturday morning, heading for a RV park in Ehrenburg, AZ.  Located on the Colorado River near I-10, it fit the bill for a place to dump, refill, and watch the Super Bowl.  How about that game?

Sure hated leaving one of our favorite places of all time.

While in Ehrenburg, and waiting on the game, we decided to make a drive up to Parker, AZ and visit an Arizona landmark.  The Desert Bar, or Nellie E saloon, is located at the end of a five mile, rocky, dirt road

There was a band playing great music.

Everything powered entirely by solar, with propane for cooking.  Food wasn’t cheap, but what is in the desert?
