There’s Nothing in Arizona

That’s right, Nothing, AZ. And there isn’t anything there. There is also Hope, Valentine, and Bouse. All spots on the state map. In 3 days we drove from Phoenix, and checked out some of these unique places : Nothing, Wikieup, Hackberry, Valentine, Kingman, Chloride, Oatman, Hualapai County Park, London Bridge, Desert Bar, Intaglio Fisherman, Bouse, Hope. Here is a map showing locations. Here a few pictures of the trip:

The Murals of Chloride, AZ. About 3 miles out-of-town on a rough road are some random murals painted by Roy Purcell in 1996, repainted in 2006.

The Desert Bar, East of Parker, AZ. Truly a desert bar, solar panels, live band and only open noon to 6 pm on the weekends. closed completely during summer months.Even has it’s on solid steel “chapel” :

The burros of Oatman, AZ. They are technically wild, but used to people feeding them:

    So glad you had a fun and interesting New Years vacation. It is neat to check out “out of the way places”. Most of us never take the time to explore like this. Hope you have a great 2016 !!

    It’s truly a shame that you two never get out of the house, or do anything fun!!
