Wickenburg - Gold Rush days

We made it to Wickenburg just as the Gold rush days were about to begin. Thank god there was lots of room still up at Sophie's flat.

Directions to Sophie's Flat:  In Wickenburg turn right on El Recreo Dr. just west of the Tastee Freeze, go north to Constellation Rd. and continue on Constellation Rd. past the rodeo grounds. At the end of the pavement go 1 mile to the Y in the road. Go left on Blue Tank Wash Road and follow this road about 1.5 miles to the large flat fenced area that's the Sophies Flat trail head. GPS coordinates are: N 34.00.385, W 112.41.705   

left Ely Nevada at 530am and headed through Nevada towards Vegas 

By noon we were in Arizona heading to Wickenburg
