We decided to take the back roads up to Peach Springs, Arizona. This was were you could buy a permit to drive down to the Colorado River on Diamond Creek Road. There's a building, the Hualapai Tribal Forestry Department where you can buy a permit.
This permit for $16.27 per person allows you to drive Diamond Creek Road down to the Colorado River on the Hualapai Reservation.
It's about a three hour drive down and back with the most spectacular views. The ride was a rough one down to the Colorado River on the washboard gravel road.
I should of aired down for the ride down which I did after Neil suggested it for the ride back up. Airing down certainly helped as the ride back up wasn't nearly as rough.
The views were amazing. I will be posting a video soon but it does not do the ride justice. The canyon drive is most amazing. It was a difficult day for us because Neil wasn't able to bring Maggie May with us. I know how hard that would of been for me if I didn't have my Jeep.
