The biggest shock today was realizing it was March 1st the time is flying by way to fast!
I wanted to stop at Hardies Beads and Jewelry, I have a couple of beading projects to complete and needed some beads and stuff. So we headed into Quartzsite. Hardies has a good selection of beads and supplies and since, I am fairly new to the hobby the fact that they are so helpful is a nice bonus.
Our next stop was to check out an abandoned building we had seen from the road yesterday driving over to visit with some friends. We were curious and wanted to get a closer look. Now that we have the Jeep we could which is kind of fun. Side note: we love the Stinger B and being able to get out on some back roads with the Jeep is so much fun.
This building is in a nice location with great views of the Dome Rock Mountains and Granite Mountain.
Next we picked up a few groceries and filled our water jugs. Then we went in search of a road that would take us from Quartzsite through the desert over to Plomosa Road. I could see it on the map but with no street or road names listed it was pretty much guess work. Once we found what looked like a likely candidate we started down knowing if we were headed North or Northeast we would intersect with Plomosa Road. We did see a sign saying it was a primitive road but except for a couple of areas of loose gravel and rocks coming up out of some of the deeper washes it really was a fairly smooth ride. Though, I will say we did go up and down quite a few washes, a few fairly steep but most pretty shallow, along the way.

these signs all the time. Can anyone tell
us where we can pick up information or
a map with the numbers on it?

It was a wonderful day filled with just enjoying our time here. We hope you enjoyed a special day, also.
Enjoy Life Now
This is Not a Rehearsal!
