Campendium!) with a view before we got to the intersection with I-40 which made a nice overnight stop.
We had plenty of fuel to reach Parker, Arizona where we took on 24 gallons at $2.19. It pays to shop around!

The product of extensive and fraudulent advertising by the Western Lead Mine Company and C.C. Julian, the town boomed in 1925. His advertising posters showed steamboats navigating the Amargosa River to Leadfield, ignoring the fact that the Amargosa River is dry much of the time and does not run within 20 miles of Leadfield."
While Rhyolite and Leadfield were interesting, the drive was the highlight of the day!

I'm glad we visited in the winter, and it's on my list to return. There's LOTS that we won't have time to see (or opportunity due to locked gates) this time.

It's the time of year that friends from far and wide start to gather in the Southwest. We're heading to Death Valley for a few days before spending time in Quartzsite and Yuma. We'll be back in town just in time to head to San Diego for a few days watching our grandson pay hockey. It's going to be fun seeing friends we don't see often!
