Fun long weekend on El Camino Del Diablo. I've wanted to see this area for awhile with particular interest on the Tinajas Altas Mountains. Belinda put the trip together and we camped first night a few miles in near Locomotive Rock. After a relaxing car camp, we started the first full day of the drive with stop at John the Baptist Mountain in the morning. Then we continued in the afternoon to Monument Bluff/Crater and visit of the border obelisk. The obelisk’s are interesting to see if given the chance.

We finished the day car camping near Tule Well and Cantina which was a nice spot but very windy. Next day we continued the drive into the Cabeza Prieta Wildlife Preserve. Have to say the Cabeza Prieta was my favorite part of the drive and had the best geology and scenery. In the morning we stopped and hiked into Tule Tank with extra rock scramble above the tank. Then back to the vehicles for lunch and continued the drive.

Eventually we made it to the Tinajas Altas Mountains the other highlight of the trip. We found a camp spot and then hiked over to Tinajas Altas Tanks in the afternoon. Third night car camping was a great spot and next morning we went for another hike exploring another area of Tinajas Altas range. After the hike we packed up and headed for Yuma with a quick stop at Fortuna Mine and the end of Camino Del Diablo. Great trip although like others mentioned probably would not drive the entire Camino Del Diablo again. Next time I'll focus on the Cabeza Prieta and Tinajas Altas which could easily take up several days of new exploring.
