We took a few hours in March 2017 to view land in Meadview and made our way up to Pearce Ferry, Arizona. Pearce Ferry sits on the west end of the Grand Canyon and is the only place where you can access both Lake Mead and the Colorado River by personal watercraft. It’s about 2 hours SE of Las Vegas, Nevada near Dolan Springs and Kingman, Arizona. Oh what a beautiful drive thru the giant Joshua Trees in Meadview! I read that they are even larger than the Joshua Tree National Park in California and wow are they ever pretty. Those alone are worth the drive.
Oh what a stormy day it turned out to be! I asked the men in the big trucks with all sorts of strange equipment on the back what they were doing. They said they were from the Hualapai River Runners and were waiting to pull the white water rafters out that were coming down the Colorado River from Peach Springs in 45 minutes. Hot dog boats coming down the river so I spent time exploring with Buddy my boyfriend! I marveled at the ridge of the canyon, watched the sandy dirt crash down into the river and spotted a heron on a rock outcropping! The thunder got loud and I was getting nervous about the time the rafters came zooming down the river. Looks fun to me and one more thing on my bucket list!
