Joshua Tree, Bradshaw, Kofa, Picacho 14 days in the Sprinter

Did parts of the Sonoran Desert Traverse. Mostly the easy parts. Some highlights were a great boondock west of Quartzite, Four Palms rd in Kofa, Agua Caliente rd where we took off on a two track about halfway through and headed toward highway 10. The road was marked on Gaia but it turned into a pretty nasty bit for miles. Picacho State Park 4S camp was nice but Indian Pass rd on the way out to Ogilby rd had a few parts where I wasn’t sure the Sprinter was going to make it. My co-pilot is too busy being scared to take any video. It would have been interesting. Then just for kicks we went to Prescott because I had never been there. Way too large a town. Then we went to Jerome which is an interesting place. Heading home, we boondocked on a backroad toward Seligman.
Temps in 22 degrees so I ran the Propex heater all night.
Last night we parked in the lot at Harris Ranch after having some BBQ.
Diesel is almost $2 cheaper per gallon in Arizona.

Maybe I need to head to Sedona soon if diesel is <$4 in AZ! What did you think of Kofa?
