After driving for a few hours, we decided to dry camp along the road and rest up for a busy day of shopping in Quartzite. We pulled over onto what is called BLM land. This is public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. Camping on this land is free but there are limitations. The following information comes from the BLM webpage on the internet....
We watched the sun set and cast shades of cotton candy pink over the powder blue sky. It was lovely.
The pink turned to fire red and then to black. One of our neighbors lit up the neighborhood with his festive palm tree.
When we woke up the next morning we were off to Quartzsite. If you haven't been there, you should go. The entire town is a flea market. We wandered around for a few hours and then got back in the truck and headed East to Phoenix.
