Got up with the sun again today, but was very slow with the coffee and blog reading. By the time we were done with breakfast it was 10 a.m.
Not wanting to do much hiking today, Yuma and I jumped in the Jeep for the ten mile drive to Borrego Springs. There it is at the base of the San Ysidro Mountains. Wouldn’t it be neat to live here as a kid. All the energy to hike and explore these mountains, badlands, desert, canyons…… The list goes on forever.
This town is another one like Ajo, Arizona. You don’t just stop here passing through on the interstate. Borrego Springs is a long way from anywhere and unless you specifically plan to come here, you will never come here. Look it up on the map and you will understand.
As you enter Borrego Springs, the first thing you come to is a circle and within the circle is Christmas Circle Community Park. One of the few places around with lush green grass.
Yuma thought it was neat!
Even I had to sit on it.
Looking back from Christmas Circle on the road we came in on you can see Font’s Point. There is a little zoom in the picture. It’s not really that close.
On the west side of the circle are the town shops. Not many. No stoplights and only one main street heading straight into the mountain. Walked down the sidewalk and took a few photos of the shops.
On the way out of town, saw this beautiful fence, so I took this one for Cheryl Dean of Deep Canyon. She loves fences.
They have hundreds of metal art sculptures in the outlaying areas of Borrego Springs. Here is just the first of many to come in later days.
New neighbors moved in nearby and they have a young female dog named Lula. Their names are Tom and Martha Ann from Colorado.
Yuma and Lula had a great time running around. She was just as fast as Yuma.
See you later.
