Emerald Cove

We can only stay for two weeks at a time at any of the Colorado River Adventures RV Resorts. Normally, we would have to stay out a week before going back into a CRA resort or pay for the week. Because we are new members, we can move to any of their resorts without paying for a week or staying out a week. For our next stay, we chose Emerald Cove in Earp, California. We got a site right on the Colorado River and the weather just keeps getting better and better. Spring has arrived in the desert Southwest!

Our first visitor to our new site in Emerald Cove RV Resort

So relaxing by the Colorado River.

 Love the view here.

 Time for a hike through the BLM land across the street from the campground.

 Rugged hillside ridge.

 The hills are turning green. Spring has arrived in the desert Southwest.

 Rugged terrain.

 Deseret plants turning green.

 Rugged hilltop path.

 Can you see the burros? Jake alerted on them while were on the path at the top of the hill across the valley.
 These two wild burros were grazing just below us as we were walking along the hilltop trail.

 It was up there on the ridge, so I had to take a picture of it.

 It was a nice hike.

 There were several of these on top of the ridge, A round circle of stones with no apparent purpose.

 Some patriotic soul put the flag on top of the ridge. They even put two solar spotlights to light the flag at night.

Our last sunrise at Emerald Cove RV Resort in Earp, California.

We saw wild burros almost every day when we left the campground.

 Our new administration at work.

 Sometimes they blocked the road.

They are so cute. 

 Really cute.

 Sometimes they come right up to the truck.

You know you are in the boonies when the mail is delivered to the Post Office by donkeys.
Yes, we went to the Post Office in Earp and this burro was just hanging around.
Hoping to get a job, I suppose.

Life is good.  Thanks for stopping by. Leave us a comment so that we can stay connected.

Hey Russ and Kay, So nice to meet you when you were here. I have been trying to get my blog post up but the internet really sucks. Maybe if I try at 2:00 am when everyone is asleep it might work. Great photos and seeing your hike pictures, I think we will be doing that tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.
Dee and Mike. (
