Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area


A week ago on our way to Arizona we stopped and had our lunch at Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area.


My daughter immediately notice this door in the mountain, and before chewing our last piece of our lunch sandwiches we are off exploring this site.


Turns out it is a very small room, with a fire ring in the middle. Which could of been pretty cool if it wasn’t for all the broken glass every where. The view from the parking lot was nice, and I can recommend a stop there.

We learned that this place is a very popular spot for boondocking (park your RV for free.) There’s plenty of room, and a restroom at this stop. There were several RV’s boondocking there when we passed by. Some of them locked like they’ve been there for a while. I looked at the map for some of the hiking trails in the area, and I bet it could be fun to explore more in the winter time. Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area is located a few miles outside Kingman (AZ,) and has about the same (hot) temperatures as Las Vegas (NV.) I can see why people with an RV choose to stop, due to the convenient location right of the highway, and the fact that it is free.

Have you ever tried boondocking? Is it something you enjoy? It was a while ago since I did it, but I did enjoy pulling up on beautiful BLM land and stay for free for a few days. When my daughter was a baby I did that a lot. We discovered many amazing places along dirt roads in both Arizona and Nevada this way.

How is your weekend so far? I got many responses after my last post, where I mentioned that we are moving to Sweden shortly. I’d like to say that there is a lot to think about, and organize, but we are doing good. We are excited about this new chapter. I spent a lot of time this weekend selling things we can’t bring on Craigslist, it’s going pretty good. I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

  1. Cool rock formations! I must say your posts have helped me ‘see’ all the great places that are in NV and CA, so I am grateful for that. I will miss them and the beauty you shared. I do hope you expand my knowledge of Sweden in the same way. 🙂 ❤

  2. Very intriguing! And you have really shown us so many beautiful places to visit in the desert. I know you will share the beautiful mountains and areas of Sweden. You have a knack of selling things, rehoming others and in general making everything work in such a positive way. Keep us posted as you go and I hope for a smooth landing in Sweden! ♥️😊♥️😃♥️

  4. As a claustrophobe, I’ll leave the doorway for you to explore. It’s a shame people don’t respect places more. I wonder how many trash their own homes.Thanks for another interesting look at the environment there. It is nice that we can enjoy places like this vicariously through each other’s blogs. Thanks, Maria.
