We are sitting here enjoying our second cup of coffee in the Sonoran Desert near Quartzsite Arizona. It doesn’t matter much where you are specifically in the Sonoran Desert you will see widely spaced shrubs of various kinds and far off backdrops of low mountains.
If you park next to a wash, the shrubs are more plentiful with a few trees mixed in.
Warm and dry as in low humidity are the key ingredients of this area.
The ‘ground’ is more gravel than sand. Some rocks are large enough to turn an ankle if stepped on just right.
The area around Quartzsite AZ where we are now is rather quiet now but come January and February there will be thousands of rv’s and the town itself will be filled with vendors of all kinds. We are told it will be a madhouse and from what we can see of the vendor and rv areas to be filled we are confident that is right. We plan on being closer to Yuma AZ then.
