Back out in the desert

Rockhouse Road, Anza Borrego near Salton Sea(Jan) Anza Borrego is a huge California State park in the southern part of the state north west of San Diego.  We spent an enjoyable 2 days there decompressing from our Rose Bowl experience and enjoying the fabulous sunsets. Our route south took us to the western side of the Salton Sea which is below sea level. Notice the SEA LEVEL marker near the top of this elevator! From there our trusty Garmin Nuvi GPS pointed the way through El Centro to the Costco. We’ve always gotten where we wanted to go reading maps but our Garmin has been especially handy navigating us through cities.

sidewinder-neat cloud formation Mickey and Karen were there to greet us when we arrived at Sidewinder. It’s great to see them and Kaaren and Bill again.  Yesterday was a classic day in the desert!  Chuck, Bill, Mickey, Kaaren and KarenThere are about 8-9 rigs in our area and one of the gals had called a mobile cleaning/washing service to clean the carpets and wash and wax their rig.  A couple of others wanted their rig or carpets done, also, and before the day was over the crew had done carpets in 2 rigs, washed 7 and washed and waxed another. We spent most of the day outside visiting and ‘supervising’ since it was a gorgeous, wind-free sunny day.  Here’s Chuck, Bill, Mickey, Kaaren and Karen hard at work!
