Lets see. At last report, Hailey was in the drawer, and we were in the Palm Springs area.
After visiting a couple of friends from back home in that area, and bringing one of them along the for the ride, it was back out into the desert asap. I scored the same campsite I had earlier near the south entrance to Joshua Tree NP. Next morning, much to my surprise there was a familiar looking truck camper and trailer parked nearby! Sure enough,an e-mail and a later visit confirmed that it was John & Nicole, from BC, and more recently, Borrego Springs. If you don’t know them, it is because I have not been able to convince John to start a blog – even though his e-mails show plenty of action and excitement. We toured through most of the road-based areas of the park, with a few short hikes thrown in, and a few viewpoints enjoyed.
The water behind Barker dam looked a bit low… Actually non-existent.
While driving past the airport, a ‘familiar’ looking aircraft was spotted.
Next was a drive out to the Wind Caves along aptly named Fish Creek(!).
Clearly, it is not wise to be in the wash any time when a heavy rain in the area is possible.
After only a couple of days enjoying the Borrego Springs area, it was time to move on. This time, back towards Yuma.
