If you're coming from the west and going through Yuma anyway, you can also cut down from Yuma, cross the border, and take another route which involves more driving in Mexico. From Yuma, take the 95 south through Somerton to San Luis at the border. Cross into Sonora, hit the 2 and go east until you hit the 8 in Sonoyta, and then continue down to Penasco on the 8. This route takes you around the north tip of Pinacate and through some other volcanic/mountain formations. See this link for a rough overview.
