This was the last morning of the Arizona Highways Photoscape in the Kofa Wilderness. We would be going about 10 miles south of the Palm Canyon Road and see the other side of the Kofa Mountains and up closer to the Castle Dome Mountains.

We mostly missed the sunrise as they should have started 15 minutes earlier so that was disappointing. However, we did get the sunrise glow on the close mountains to our west along with a full moon. It was nice to see the other side of the Kofas and we had a pretty desert foreground. The desert floor is very interesting here with the somewhat hard soil and flat rocks embedded in it.

From here we could see some of the Kofa Peaks that I will try to ID but perhaps other HAZers that are more familiar with the area could verify. I did do some Rx but I'm still not sure. There was also a cool jet stream shooting from the east so that was pretty cool and of course, we were somewhat surrounded by the Castle Dome Mountains which seems to be a scattered range.

After the group shot, we were done around 9:30 so headed back for Quartzsite and the Mountain Quail Cafe for breakfast and then the drive home. I do like the views of the mountains on each side of the freeway. I was able to ID some of them from both drives.

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
