      We've driven from Los Angeles to Sedona a few times, but cross over near Lake Havasu. I was surprised at the beauty of Arizona, expecting mostly desert. I can see why Blythe would be attractive to those who love living near the water.

      @lesliesinclair: The draw is the Colorado River and the recreation it provides (boating, fishing, waterskiing, etc.). There are homes with docks on the Colorado River.

      What's the draw to the area, other than cheap homes? Why would anyone want to pay in the three hundreds for a home in a remote desert area, I wonder.

      Nice lens representing Blyth. I have been there or driven through before. Next time I'll stop to smell the roses.
