Here is the pumper truck for dumping our tanks, Cute saying on the back! he pumped us out in about 5 min, wish it went that fast at the dump stations. the cost to dump in town is anywhere from 12 to 20 dollars and he charged us 25 so I figure it was a break even deal if I had to pack up and drive to town, 8 miles. 

Here we are arriving at the Desert Bar and Nellie E Saloon outside of Parker,AZ. it is on a rough gravel road about 5 miles back in the mountains. It is only open on weekends from Noon to 5pm and they have live music. they use solar panels and generators to run the place as there is no power back in there. this is an old mine building that shut down years  
ago and this guy bought the land in 1975 and opened the bar in 1983. the Church front in the parking lot was built in 1996 and is made of solid steel. they hold many weddings out here every year at the church.

 This is the original bar building from 1983!
 Dust is blowing in the distance so you cant see much of the mountains. it blew all day and stopped about 10pm. left of fine layer of dirt all over everything so we had to dust the camper. That is the desert for you!!
 Here is our group on top of the bar, the seating is scattered around the area, some of it is down in the gully, this was on top of the bar and there is seating in the bar and just outside of it and of course near the stage where the live music is being played. Very unique place.

 Here is a picture of the storm moving in that washed down all the dust we had a couple days before. it rained a enough to knock down all the dust that was stirred up and made everything pleasant again.

 Here is a nice pic of couple of people playing on the desert with their ultralight craft. each afternoon about 3 of these take off from an area just behind us and they fly all over the desert. It is probably a great view from up there of all the RV's on the desert.

 Another gorgeous sunrise in the desert. the sunset last night was also a very bright orange color. the sunsets here are very vibrant and I think that some of the dust in the air probably causes the color. This one is because of the clouds tho!! the picture does not due it justice! it was fabulous!
