Truckhaven BLM, Salton City, California
This morning, I again was awake earlier than usual. Was up and going around 7:30 and I'm not complaining. The weather is just perfect outdoors and it wasn't long before Yuma was laying in the doorway soaking up the sun.
After breakfast and our walk, I slowly started packing things in preparation for our move further into California. My plan is to move close to Borrego Springs, California and Jeep around the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park over the next week or so.
Finished packing and left around 10:30 with plans to make the 95 mile drive by 2 o'clock. Need to stop in Brawley Walmart to do a little shopping. Plus, I'm driving a new route today and want to stop and look around whenever I see something I like.
We headed North on Ogilby Road which dead ends into East/West highway 78.
|Much better than I-8.
|Must dead end soon.
|Turning left onto highway 78.
I must say it is pretty all through this area. I'm glad Al (Travel With The Bayfield Bunch) told me about it. I'm sure he has been at this Stop sign a time or two.
|Looks beautiful to the West.
|Stood on that hill top to get the next picture.
There is a look-out at the top of the sand dune ahead and we went up there to look out over the dunes. There were sand runners up there taking a break.
|Yuma ran over to them to get pets.
|Looking back the way we came.
It wasn't long before the fun was over and we were heading into Brawley and the Walmart store. Not too crowded and I found everything I was looking for and more.
Drove on up to the Borrego Springs turn and met Deb and Riley at the Truckhaven service center so they could lead me back to their place in the desert.
Got all set-up close to dinner time. Sat outside with our hosts for a short period just long enough to get a picture of the sunset and then called it a night. We did make plans for a Jeep trip tomorrow.
Even though we didn't travel far today, we are tired and ready to call it a night. I've still got dinner to make, so better get cracking.
See you later.
