Colorado River Indian Reservation Reviews
Exploring Greater Arizona Jun 13, 2010
A road trip to the Northeast of Arizona will take you through some of the most exciting, intriguing and dull yet inspiring landscapes. One such occassion for a road trip arose when I decided I wanted to knock off one of the destinations on my "Bucket List". The destination happened to be Lake Havasu where the original London Bridge now calls home. A four hour journey took us through the Colorado River Indian Reservation. It is located about 187 miles west of Phoenix on Arizona Highway 95. Geographically it lies in western La Paz County of Arizona, and to the southeast of San Bernardino County in California, and on the northeastern Riverside County of California.
With a population of a little less than 9300 people, the land is predominantly occupied by native Indian tribes namely the Mohavi, Navajo, Hopi and the Chemehuevi Indians. Together the 4 tribes form what is called the Colorado river Indian tribes. This history is facinating.
We did not visit any of the tribes, we just enjoyed the great landscape. It was rather a hot day so we refrained from staying too long on the reservation land. We made a shot stop and headed off to Lake Havasu.
