Daytripping to AHAKHAV Tribal Preserve (#157)

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.
