Saddle Mountain–BLM

Monday, February 29, 2016 – Leap Day

Happy Leap Day everyone.  Several weeks ago, I was reading the Technomadia blog and Chris and Cherie had spent time at the Saddle Mountain BLM and really enjoyed the place.  They nicely provided the coordinates and we took them up on it.

We were looking for a place not more than about 3 hours east of Joshua Tree N.P. and this seems like a great place to check out.

Boy, are we impressed.  We are parked right next to the mountains and they are beautiful.

We started on the road at 9:15 A.M. and headed east on I-10 toward Quartzsite, Arizona, arriving there about 1:00 P.M. Mountain time.

We stopped for gas and filled both the jeep and the MH.  Next we ran down Main Steet to the Main Street Laundromat and Showers.  Dolly did laundry while I drove the RV up to the RV Pit Stop on Central and dumped tanks, filled the propane tank and took on drinking water.

We left Quartzsite at 3:00 P.M. with all systems go.  Crossing the foothills of the Plomosa Mountains east of Quartzsite.

75 miles further east we turned off on exit 81 and followed the directions provided by Chris to our new home next to Saddle Mountain.  I can’t wait for me and Yuma to hike around this place.
