Our recent tour of the American Southwest ended over a fall weekend in Laughlin, Nevada. Coming home, we didn't want to deal with the Las Vegas traffic so we detoured along Route 66 through the desert and the community of Amboy, home of the Amboy Crater.
Here are some pictures of that journey (be sure to check out the video too, at the top of this post)...
Coming into Needles, California with the Colorado River in the distance.
Another view of the river with jet skiers having some fun.
You don't need anything fancy to have fun at the river. Just pull over and jump in.
Along the Route in Needles, I'm guessing an old hotel or boarding house.
The Amboy Crater, a near perfect cinder cone from an ancient volcano.
A close up of some of the lava field surrounding the crater.
Another view of the crater.
...and one more view of the lava spreading across the desert.
