Location: Truckhaven BLM near Salton City, California
This morning I woke up with the sun and it was shining bright orange and red barely making it through the cloud cover. I zoomed the camera in across the Salton Sea from my clean bedroom window and this is what I saw.
Yuma and I took a walk and it was fairly warm with no sun and then had our breakfast. They even called for rain sometime today. Not a good forecast.
Yesterday, Deb, Riley and I had made tentative plans to drive up to the Box Canyon area outside Mecca and walk through a slot canyon. With possible rain, we decided that would not be the best idea, so we nixed the plan and decided to make it a day of rest.
As the day wore on without sun, I found it to be depressing. Can't believe just one day without the sun would have that affect but it has. Yuma and I just sat around and moped all day.

Most of the desert runners have packed up already and moved out by afternoon leaving the two of us in the middle of nowhere.
Even Yuma was looking for the excitement and noise, but none was to be found. Those fair weather scoundrels.
As the day wore on it felt cooler out and the sun never did make an appearance. Thankfully, the remainder of the week will be fabulous! I slowly packed things around the MH in preparation for tomorrow's short travel day. I was looking at Google Maps and I think I've found a place I've never stayed before so I'm excited to head out.
See you later.
