Big Maria Mountains


By: Parker Severson


The Big Maria Mountains on the Colorado River near Blythe were again visited on March 5-6 with the Hendersons leading. 27 turned up for the trip, which was a bit drier than the last one. On a soggy day in January, 1952, the hike in the Big Maras looked like an underwater scene in Walt Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." The skin divers would have loved it. Yep, it was that wet.
