My winter’s sojourn in southwest Arizona gives the advantage of an easy day’s drive (or less) to some pretty awesome places.
The AHAKHAV Tribal Preserve ( formed by the Colorado River Indian Tribes) sits along a backwater stretch of the Colorado River in Parker, Arizona.
The preserve is helping to restore the river’s ecosystem and provides a recreational area for residents and visitors.
The challenge of finding this place (there are no signs) rewarded me with a sense of peace and solitude as I walked the forest and riverside.
Firepits and tables made of the areas natural stone enhance this picnic area.
Being a native born Pennsylvania mountain girl, a stay in the desert means always seeking out the places that remind me of home.
AHAKHAV Tribal Preserve is one of them.
