Any visit to Quartzsite, AZ is not complete without a trip out to the Desert Bar.
It can be reached at the end of a 5-mile dirt road, but several of us decided to be really daring and take the 4-wheel drive road. I'm sure glad I wasn't driving!
It appears some people didn't make it at all.
I didn't get pictures of the worst parts, because I was too busy holding on!
Finally, we arrived and our leader found a good parking space.
The bar is located on land that was an old mining camp. We got there pretty early, so we had seats right on the dance floor.
They have a limited menu, and if you want any condiments other than ketchup and mustard, you'd better bring your own.
The bar stools are old tractor seats. Don't you love my 10X zoom?
The place has expanded in the last few years. This year they even have better food available downstairs. Notice the 48 solar panels? That is their only source of electricity.
You just have to wonder about the story here.
There is a "church" here, completed in 1996, that is a popular place for weddings, but it has only one wall.
