We started out walking up a wash between the mountains:
|Volcanic Rock Mountains|
Eventually we reached the two peaks you see at the upper right in the photo above:
|And up and over we went.|

|Do you see the little people down in the wash?|
A few days later we learned the rangers in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge in the Kofa Mountains were conducting a moonlight hike on the night of the full moon:

The park emloyee who conducted the hike did an excellent job telling us about the wildlife and plants in the desert.
At the end of the hike I learned that Bill and Ann, Kofa Wilderness hosts, were at the back of our hiking group. I've read so much about them on several blogs, most frequently on the The Bayfield Bunch and RV Sue, and felt like I already knew them so I introduced myself and spent a few minutes chatting with them. They conduct hikes in the Koa Refuge every Saturday and we planned to head up there the following Saturday to join them. Unfortunately I got a cold that lingered and lingered so we missed that opportunity and we are leaving Yuma shortly so it is an opportunity lost for now. Perhaps another year.
