Wild Wickenburg, Arizona, April 5, 2019 GPS Map

Clara suggested this trip as a way of getting out of town and taking pictures of the spring flowers. Sounded like a good idea, so Jacque and I went with her.

We might have gone farther, but a rock hit our windshield and made a big crack. I called the auto insurance people to report it. The crack was a foot long, and curved. By the time we got to Wickenburg, the crack had spread to halfway across the windshield. So after lunch I drove us home. We got here safely.

The best pictures were at the Hassayampa River Preserve.
