Our hosts in Lake Havasu City, AZ – Lisa Hewus and her awesome family, proposed taking us to a unique bar in the middle of the desert after hearing about our interests in Burning Man. It’s called Nellie E Saloon (or just simply ‘The Desert Bar’ to the locals), which is about 5 miles down a maintained dirt road outside of Parker, AZ in the Buckskin Mountains. They then further proposed, since we each had a 4×4 Jeep, that we take the alternate “moderate” Jeep trail in.
The adventure getting there was quite.. umm.. exciting, and we’re proud to say that our stock 2006 Jeep Liberty Diesel earned its ‘Trail Rated’ badge and was able to keep up with the Rubicons out there – but that’s another story for another day.
Let’s just say that once we got to The Desert Bar, a cold beer and a hamburger sure did hit the spot! This was definitely a unique spot to spend the afternoon, and what an oasis in the middle of the Arizona desert! Definitely worth checking out should you ever be in the area on a weekend between Labor Day and Memorial Day.
