    Joshua Tree National Park to Lake Havasu

    April 13, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Today we spent driving around Joshua Tree National Park. Two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together in Joshua Tree National Park. 

    We had lunch at Quail stop and then did a 1 km loop at Hidden Valley. Brandon walked all the way around and made it without being carried. Inara wanted to be carried most of the way but insisted on walking anything that was up. It was beautiful and everything looked the same. The ranger yesterday told Brandon that he needed to stay close to us as it looks all the same and it's very easy to get lost. It does.

    We finished the visit with a stop at Key View which was breathtaking, windy and cold.

    When we got to the camp, it was so windy and not fun that we decided to change our plans. We couldn't walk as it was too windy, and we couldn't have a fire, the tent felt like it could break and it was cold. It was no fun for anyone.

    We were supposed to have a 2nd night here, then to pack up and a 6 hour drive to Flagstaff Arizona. We packed up late in the afternoon, drove 3 hours and decided to stay a night in Lake Havasu in a motel in the area.

    Lake Havasu City

    October 10, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Unser Weg führte uns dann die Route 66 weiter bis Lake Havasu City. Dort angekommen sicherten wir uns erstmal einen Campingplatz und dann ging es zum Strand, erstmal ne runde relaxen. Gegen Abend ging es dann am Hafen entlang, über die London Bridge. Eine richtig schöne kleine Stadt, die vom Wasser umrandet ist und auf der anderen Seite sind die Berge zu sehen. Die Stadt ist aufgrund der London Bridge ein bisschen wie London aufgebaut, mit roten Telefonzellen und einen kleinen Big Ben.
    Danach sind wir dann zu einer Bierverkostung in der örtlichen Brauerei gegangen und ließen den Abend auf dem Zeltplatz ausklingen. Endlich war es mal wieder so warm das man mit T-Shirt und kurzer Hose draußen sitzen konnte....

    Lake Havasu City, United States

    August 3, 2015 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 39 °C

    Vi havde brug for en overnatning mellem Joshua Tree og Hoover Dam. Valget faldt på Lake Havasu City som ligger ved søen Lake Havasu. Søen er kunstig og udgør et vandreservoir. Byen blev i 1960'erne skabt af McCulloch, som havde skabt sin rigdom ved produktion af kædesave. Han kickstartede byen ved at flytte et antal fabrikker og ikke mindst - London Bridge - til byen. I dag er broen, som man kan forvente, centrum for en turistattraktion, som i en dansk optik er ualmindeligt kitschet.
    Vi havde god tid om morgenen og fik en morgendukkert, før vi kørte videre.
