Katherine Campground

Posted on

Upon arriving in Laughlin/Bullhead City we headed east on 68 to the Davis Dam Road. Then turned on Katherine Spur Rd. Our camp host, Joe, has been very friendly and helpful.

The South campground has 4 tiers of sties but only 2 are open. We thought this would be the busy season, but NO we were wrong. There are only a handful of people here and they move on.

Our site was perfect for us. Sun in our windows all day long as well as hitting the solar panels to power all that we need. The only “con” to this site is the pea gravel that likes to come in the house on the bottom of shoes. Otherwise it has been a very good site.

This is Mohave Lake at the end of our road with a marina for houseboats! I imagine this is a popular place in the summer.

Mohave Lake is because of Davis Dam that backs up the water to make a lake.

This is Laughlin, Nevada and across the Colorado Rive is Bullhead City. All those buildings on the Nevada side are casinos with hotels, restaurants and anything else you need.

We were coming home from Las Vegas (short shopping trip) last night and I took this on the fly across the bridge from Nevada into Arizona. We had buffet breakfast at the Riverview before taking off for Vegas.

And this is Las Vegas on December 18, 2013. Our weather turned and it was very cloudy causing an inversion in the city. It was an ugly brown and we were not in Vegas long. We did our shopping up in Henderson. I went to Jareds! HA. If you have heard the commercials on TV. My granddaughter wanted a Pandora Charm for Christmas, so I knew Jareds would be authentic.I was met at the door and greeted by a saleswoman who then assisted me through my whole purchase. There were about 4 other saleswomen and a guard there.

The granddaughter wants an infinity scarf so I was able to go to quilt stores! What a treat. I ended up at Hobby Lobby and getting what I needed.

While we were driving to the trailer, we were treated with a sunset. I am very disappointed that this photo did not come out with the original colors. If you can imagine all bright orange with burnt orange edges you have what we saw. I was using my phone camera.

Life is good! Moving on tomorrow for southern Arizona. God brought my cat home that we thought the coyotes got.
