Christmas Trip: Kingman Wash, Arizona

Dave, Steve, Arvin and I drove across the bridge near Hoover Dam and headed into Arizona. The first turn off took us up and back down a wide dirt road along Kingman Wash down to Lake Mead on the Arizona side. We backtracked and took a smaller side road up into the wash to find a spot where we could get closer to the amazing colorful areas. We took lots of photos and then headed back to the main road and a place to park and eat our lunches. We took off towards the highway but took a tiny side road, North Mine Road. That wound up and up until we had a 360 degree view of the area. We found a wide spot in the road where Dave was able to turn the car around with Steve's help. Here are some photos from the day.

This is the view from the main road on the Nevada side as we approached the bridge to Arizona. I took the following photos during our walk up into the hills above the wash.

Here we are making the turn on North Mine Road. Steve is directing. Dave is driving. Arvin and I are watching from a safe distance.
