Last night when the wind died down Eric decided to unload Big Red. A fellow passing by stopped to look and he said he was admiring our clothes rack. I said it was and Eric made add on. You always need more room for clothes if you travel from cold to warm and back.
Ready to back her out.
So off to Kingman via Oatman. Over the Colorado river to the Bullhead, Az side.
43 miles to Kingman.
Coming into Oatman and this doesn’t look like any gallery I’ve ever seen.
I was surprised to see so many people here at such a quiet time. Actually I’m surprised to see people here at any time. Not sure what the big attraction is.
Lots and lots of bikes.
We had to wiggle our way through the burros and the people all over the road. The burros won’t move.
Leaving town and more old stuff.
You climb up to the pass and it’s a fair way up. Sitgreaves pass is 3586ft in elevation so that’s about 3000 feet higher than Laughlin.
Twisty and turny.
Again that beautiful geology.
And down we go to Cool Springs and Golden Valley.
There are even some ocotillo here and some are blooming.
Parked in the shade in Kingman. It was hugely windy from Laughlin to Oatman but then it died down. It can be cool in Kingman but…not today. We’ll have lunch just up the street at El Palacio the Mexican restaurant that we always enjoy.
We were both hungry when we got there and they deliver hot chips, two kinds of salsa and beans……gratis.
Eric had the carnita wrap , I had a chimichanga with rice and beans and I couldn’t finish my rice. One Pacifico each and it’s all super value as most lunch entrees are under 8$. My guess is we’ll be having soup for supper tonight! Always good service and good food here.
They continue to fix up old buildings along this stretch of Route 66 or Andy Devine drive as it’s called here.
The Santa Fe.
So….a good day and it’s hot now. We have finally had to resort to using the A/C.
A pretty evening and a good day.
