The sun makes its entrance to the Borrego Springs Valley this morning around 6:45 am as I take Yuma for his morning walk. It is nice and comfortable with no wind, but there are more clouds than we have had for the last four days.
After breakfast, I gave Yuma a bath and once he dried while we laid in the sun on our zero gravity chair, we packed up the laundry and garbage and went to town.
Passed Christmas Tree Circle. The farmer’s market was in progress, but didn’t stop to take a look. Decided to see if the Laundromat was full first.
Passed the pretty mall in town.
The Laundromat had one washer open large enough to take my whole bag, so that is what I did.
The Laundromat is located in a hotel/RV park that is all decked out like an old western town.
Once the laundry was done, Yuma and I went back to camp and had lunch, then took another siesta.
It was around 4:30 pm when I decided to go take a closer look at the sand dunes about 4 miles east of our camp. I guess when the wind comes over the Santa Rosa Mountains from the north, the sand settles at the base.
To the west Yuma sees Clark Dry Lake bed across the sand dunes.
You cannot go anywhere out here and not stumble on rock sculptures.
As we topped the first sand dune, I looked back toward the jeep to get my bearings. Don’t want to lose it. The orange flag isn’t tall enough for these dunes.
Before I knew it, the sun was setting and I need to get the jeep turned around and on the way before darkness hits. Once that sun goes behind the mountains, it will be dark soon after. I don’t want to be on a deep sand road after dark.
We made it just in time and I was able to get turned around and back down the sandy road.
Now I need to get the Dish up and running so I can watch Gold Rush this evening.
See you later.
