Parker Dam

Parker Dam

Parker doesn’t have a whole lot to do, but we made a trip out to Parker Dam. Its pretty cool. Its closed from 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM daily. The road is narrow and has donkey/burro warning signs. We found a spot called Take Out Point that looked interesting and thought it might be a night fishing possibility.

Then on to Blue Water Cinema for lunch and a movie (Beauty and the Beast) and back to camp to relax. In the evening, we headed out to Take Out Point for some night fishing. They have several individual fishing docks in the area behind Parker Dam that is a part of Lake Havasu. It’s close and yet remote.

We settled in about 8:00 (still 89 degrees) and not even the slightest breeze. It was really lovely!  The half-moon lit the night to an almost twilight color. We could see the peaks surrounding us and their reflections in the water. It was amazingly quiet, no birds or bugs or animal sounds at all. There wasn’t any of the usual background noise, cars, boats, or voices either. There wasn’t even the sound of water rolling in or splashing on the shore. I can’t remember hearing that much silence. I thought it was fascinating. I do believe I could hear my self thinking. . . .

Alas no fish – I’m thinking JP will be water bound when we get back to Oregon!
