The lead wood fire was lit and embers ready by the time I got back with provisions to grill. Great night by the fire under the open stars which were as bright as De Kelders. Bed good, quite place with only the noise of nature outside the door including the buffalo. Excellent place to start the tour of Blythe and had great recommendations on 2 other lookout drives, way up there in the mountains!
