Beautiful sunrise this morning. Got up early enough to catch it today.

There is only one laundromat in Borrego Springs and since I came in the middle of a Monday morning around 11 A.M, it was crowded. All the washers and dryers were full, so I had to wait.
While waiting, I walked around the beautiful lodge area behind the laundromat. Set up like an old western town.
Luckily, I struck up a conversation with a nice lady and she let me have her two washers when they finished. Only had to wait 17 minutes for that. Then I tried to put $4.00 worth of quarters in the first one and of course it jammed.
Tried pushing the button for the coin return and that worked until it jammed. Evidently, I kept stuffing quarters in after the first jam. I could see the quarters in the return slot all stuck together, so I pulled out my pocketknife and wrangled them out. About eight of them slowly came out.
Put them in again, slowly this time and got it going. Yeah! The nice lady then told me I could use a credit card, so for the other machine, that's what I did. No jamming this time!
The nice lady allowed me to use her two dryers when she finished so I was set. By 1 P.M. I was out of there. Didn't fold them so I do have some wrinkled stuff, but no one will notice. Not like I'm heading for a party or anything.
Of course I had to leave Yuma tied up at the bench outside, so he was always on my mind. Amazing how many people came up to pet him and keep him company while I was inside. Lots of nice people around here.
On the way home I stopped at a water dispenser and got seven gallons of water and then dumped the small trash bag behind the laundromat and we on our way. Quickly, hand pressed the wrinkled stuff and put everything away and then had lunch. Breakfast and lunch. Two for three so far today. Maybe if I finish this blog at a decent hour, I'll get to have dinner.
Laid around the RV till it just felt too hot and then we hopped in the Jeep around 4:30 to run up S22 about two miles to see Fonts Point. It is located about four miles up a sandy wash. The sign says 4 wheel drive only and probably advisable. Lots of sand.

|Yuma took one look and stepped back.|

|Sharp drop-off just beyond that plant. Salton Sea in the distance.|

|Yuma does not like looking over that cliff!|
|Much happier in the Jeep.|
|Sun is going down, so we better get back to camp.|
See you later.
