Last weekend hubby and I took an extra day off work and drove up the Colorado River toward Parker and Lake Havasu City. Neither one of us had driven up that road before. I'd been up the California side, but never the Arizona one. Since the farmers here in the Coachella Valley get their water from the Colorado River, I was interested to see how much water was at this point. I'm glad we both had this opportunity to see the river that gives life to our desert! Watery Wednesday for November 10, 2010.
