After around a 7 hr drive from Shane & Crissy's we ended up camping in Palo Verde county park. The park we initially were looking for didn't seem to allow camping anymore and we lucked upon a really cool park on the river. The campsite is nestled underneath a really cool huge tree and we are in spitting distance of the Colorado River. Our neighbors are also pretty cool. We asked them about local food and they gave us a suggestion but also offered up PB&J if the place was closed. They are a retired couple from Oregon who have been here for about 6 months escaping from the cold.

John and I grabbed dinner at a local bar that is definitely full of locals. We got lots of stares when we came in. They had $1 draft though and were playing a Chuck Norris movie so we stuck around for a second beer.
 
After that we went back to the campground and I beat John at another round of rummy and we crashed out. We got moving fairly early, packed up camp and are hitting the road for Oakland, CA.
