1. Black Rock Canyon Area
After driving through California for two days, we arrived at the Black Rock Canyon campground around 4:00 P.M on day four of our trip. Finally, it was sunny, warm, and DRY! Black Rock Canyon campground was nearly empty with just 4-5 campers. The following morning, we did the Black Rock Canyon+Panorama loop trail.
Fog or smog? Rolling in…

2. Jumbo Rock Campground area
After the Panorama Loop hike, we moved on to the Jumbo Rocks campground. It is a beautiful campground with amazing rock formations, and a lot more people were camping there. Early the next morning, we did the Skull Rock nature trail which started right by our campsite, and continued on to Face Rock Loop.
After the hike, we headed south east to the Cottonwood campground stopping at the Cholla Cactus Garden and Ocotillo Patch on the way.
