Lake Havasu State Park

Lake Havasu State Park

In hindsight we probably should have spent another day in Oceanside to avoid the high winds we experienced on our 300 mile drive to Lake Havasu City. We stopped for lunch at a Joshua Tree National Park visitor center. The road from there to Parker was particularly bad with winds in excess of 50 miles per hour that limited our visibility because of blowing sand. The high winds kicked in the Via’s electronic stability program (ESP) which warned us that it detected a spin in the wheels. The road was desolate although a few vehicles safely passed us. Because I drove only at speeds where I felt in control of the vehicle, we arrived at the Lake Havasu State Park later than originally planned. After setting up our campsite, we walked to and across the London Bridge for a pleasant dinner at Shugrues. It was calmer this morning which made the drive back to Phoenix much easier. We stopped for lunch at the Bouse Wash Rest Area. This was our first long trip in the motor-home. We are already looking forward to new adventures in it in the New Year.
