This refuge is just a few miles north of Parker, Arizona. The very well-done area contains 6,105 acres and was established in 1941. We toured the visitor center and learned a great deal about both this river and the Colorado River. This river is a tributary of the Colorado, sharing the benefits of dams, including the Parker Dam just a few miles away.
After touring the small visitor center, I took Abby along on our walking tour of the paved pathway just outside. It was very informative with small signs identifying the bushes, trees, and cacti along the way. There are also three fishing structures.
What a beautiful part of the country!
