Yuma and I are on BLM land six miles south of the Cottonwood Entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, California
Altitude : 1667 feet
Latitude : 33.67300N
Longitude : 115.79800W
This morning began with a beautiful sunrise over the wires.
Now that I am in the low desert country, it remained pleasant all night. Left the window open to receive the soft wind in the night.
On our walk this morning overlooking the interstate, it was easy walking on the nice hard sand and sandy colored brush that spots the hillside. Not many cactus to bother Yuma and the brush is sparse enough to walk comfortably in and around.
That I-10 is a busy highway.
Yuma loves to run and chase anything that moves. Flies, lizards and birds so far. He even caught a tortoise. I am letting him off leash while we are alone with no one to distract him. Have to give him a little wiggle room. He seems to be very careful and comes when I call.
Took a jeep ride to the east on our sandy road and after about four miles, there was a turn off to the south to I-10.
Leonardo Da Vinci invented this 33 barreled cannon, so you could fire 11 rounds while 11 were cooling and 11 were being loaded.
Had a nice leisurely day and this evening, we had us a fire in the fire pit with the lights of I-10 in the background. Very nice out tonight. Think I will do a little star gazing tonight.
See you later.
