Quartzsite was made for hiking. Easy, beautiful, safe. Either in the relatively populated areas, or out in the wild.

One time when backpacking in the Ventana Wilderness in California we slept in an a designated area next to a stream that looked like a rotortiller had gone through.

About 3 am a dozen wild boars showed up and began digging in the earth looking for grubs, worms, etc. right where we were sleeping. We just laid still until they left about an hour later.

Their eyes glow bright red when you shine a flashlight on them.

I don't know if they were boars or just wild pigs which are abundant in that area. They didn't bother us and we didn't bother them. We decided we were never going to bed down for the night in that location ever again...lol

If in the Arizona desert they were, most likely, javelina, a peccary. They are not in the pig family. They live is desert areas but also freely walk around populated areas of the big cities. They are very common.

Javelina or Pigs as they are know to the locals can be found at elevation too. Here in Prescott at 5400 feet we see them in the back yard often.

Looking to attend the big show in Jan. Will be our first time there. Do others take buggies ? Looks like it's mid-desert, would like to bring our RZR and ride from camp out to explore.
