We boondocked near the tiny town of Brenda, East of Quartzsite, Az. We have been in this area several times, but we always find new trails to ride and great views and finds to see. A ride to Ray Hoover Memorial.
The next day we visited some historic petroglyphs, There are 20 in this area. We rode to the huge slice of fault line, which is 30 x 60ft. To see the St Maria Grotto is quite a site. Many times there will be fresh flowers, candles and silk flowers. Off we went to the mountain range to the south and tot the Eagles Eye Lookout
Returning back to camp, we passed “Princess Geri Castle”- our name. Visited a Banded Rhyolite mountain.
Day 3, We went to the Black Beauty Mine, the Mule Deer Valley.
The last day we rode to the Apache Cabin, filled with fun things, laundry out back too. Then we luckily found our way to the Dripping Springs. This is a really cool place. It was used in the 1880’s during the mining time. There is water dripping to this day. There ae 100’s of petroglyphs on all the rocks next to the spring.
On the way back to camp, we drove up the mountain with towers on top, boy could we see for miles.
