Arizona Beauty

We typically head to Parker, AZ where we can rent houses on the rver or to Laughlin, NV where we can stay on the water all day and party at the casinos all night. Both places are about 4 hours drive from Los Angeles.

First Trip of 2007

As most of you know, I married an LA City Fireman....and since all firemen have boats it means that we spend a good part of the spring and summer at the river.

Desert Center

To get to Parker you must take Desert Center Drive. It is an 87 mile 2 lane road quite literally through the middle of the desert. There are no gas stations or rest stops...just you and the desert. This sign directs you towards civilization.
