Yuma Arizona back to Laughlin Nevada

Today I would start my trip north again.

The first stop was a cache called Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight that we didn’t stop at coming south because it was getting dark.

I have to say I started to look for the cache then an Ambulance arrived along with a Firetruck and there they sat for over 20 minutes a short distance away. I tried to look for this cache but had no success. I hate to DNF it but lets say it is one of the better DNF’s I have had.

From here I head up to do the Christmas Series near and in the Kofa Wildlife Refuge .
I have to say this has some real contrasts as you go farther into it.

In the photo above there are caves that used to be open to the public but are now closed.

From this area I head to do a cache called Mountain Goat Country

The cache is up there

Once I left here I headed back to the main road. I came across some nice Teddy bear cactus or Cholla.

PLR

Nest up was the PLR 1 cache series

Great road for the most part. Had some questionable washes for cars, but the Escape had no problems.
The PLR series are the best maintained series I have come across. My hats off to SKPGeocachers.

For some reason my PQ didn’t download the end of the series.

I headed to Old Yuma Road next where I ran into a old couple caching who wanted to have nothing to do with me . Wouldn’t even say hi.

Once this was completed I headed into Quarzsite to do a Virtual cache called Hi Jolly. It is a National Historic Landmark.
This is a reason why Virtual need to be brought back.

I left here and headed for Laughlin and didn’t do another cache.  I managed 39/40 caches today.

I will say this now I had not planned to come back this way but on the way down I left my jacket in Harrah’s in Laughlin. I needed to get it back so my trip changed.
