Brenda is a tiny old town, between Vicksburg and Quartzsite on Hwy 60. Made up of 4 RV parks and neighborhoods and a part time fruit stand, restaurant and small food stand and sometimes a grocery store. No gas here. You can buy a book of the trails from Black Rock RV park.
Bouce is a small town, 18 mi north of Brenda, on Hwy 72. Another small town, but it has a few stores, laundromat, restaurants, library, grocery, and gas.
Eagles Eye View, close as you can get! Black lava rock surrounding town of Brenda.
Apache Chief Cabin, built with stones. Note all the electric items, yet no electricity here!
This area is desert with some pink sand dunes, mountains, wash trails and desert. It is quite an interesting area to ride thru, black volcano rocks, green and blue rocks, and game water dams. You can actually ride from one town to the other. Some RV parks in either area will have an Atv ride poker run.
Some of the destinations to ride to: Fault line, Eagle's eye, The Grotto of Mary of Guadalupe, Rholite mine, Apache cabin and some interesting Petroglyphs and many more. More pictures of the sights in a 2012 post.
The Grotto of Mary of Guadalupe, with solar light on the cross.
VICKSBURG-spelled out on the desert floor with stones. These were placed here women pilots to navigate from Calif. to Tucson Air Base, because the planes did not have instruments.
