1st trip
Day 1 - The long ride up to Lee's Ferry with a stop at Navajo Bridge. The wind was brutal but died down during the night.
Day 2 - Backhaul up the river to Glen Canyon Dam and a full day kayaking down with stops at the petroglyphs and on Horseshoe Bend. With the wind picking up again the next day we were advised not to camp on the river.
Day 3 - Breakfast at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge, Cathedral Wash to the Colorado River and back, the drive around to Horseshoe Bend from above
Day 4 - The long drive home and the dread of going back to work the next day...

The Chiricahua Shuttle isn't actually operating...but the Happy Wife Express offered luxury class service from Bonita Canyon Campground to Echo Canyon TH. I did the side trails to Inspiration Point and through the Heart of Rocks, both definitely worth it, and was back at the CG in time for lunch.

After a week of camping in the Mojave National Preserve I took the family into Bullhead City where we spent the night along the Colorado River at Davis Dam. The next morning I took the kayak out for what is essentially an "urban kayak" past the casinos in Laughlin and the riverfront homes in Bullhead. There was no one else on the water despite the beautiful weather, which to me is a blessing, as I'd rather not contend with jet skis and water taxis. After six leisurely hours I reached my destination at Aztec Road just above the Nevada/California state line, where my family was waiting with the truck. My wife had packed up camp at Davis Dam and made a pitstop at Safeway for a handful of carrots. Off to Oatman to feed the burros!

The dry water trough has a sign labeling it Dutch John Spring, but I took the trail past that to where the spring is on the topo map. There's a small slickrock section with water flowing down it and I sat there and watched some Mexican Jays. After that, the canyon narrows up and the trail heads uphill and to the left. I'm not sure how much farther it goes as the spring was my turnaround point.

This was one of those hikes where halfway through I just wanted it to be over. The trail is ridiculously overgrown. The higher you climb the thicker and thornier the vegetation becomes. Thick pants and a long-sleeved shirt are a must. I only wore a t-shirt and must have close to fifty cuts on my arms. After donating so much blood I wasn't up for the long drive back home so I spent the night at White Rock Campground. The next morning I did some birding at Pena Blanca Lake and drove out to see the ghost towns of Lochiel, Washington Camp, Harshaw and the Empire Ranch.

Get there early enough and you have may have some trails to yourself. I didn't see anyone else at Wukoki, Doney or Lomaki. Then I went outside the park boundaries to explore some other ruins in the area.
