Location: West Dome Rock Road near Quartzsite, Arizona
Good morning everyone this Groundhog Day! He saw his shadow of course, but who cares. More Winter the merrier I say! The weather has been great in the Southwest and I'm hoping for two more months of it. I'ts also Flip Flop Day: 02-02/2020 or Mirror Day.
Got up early this morning. Before 7 o'clock.
Last night while reading a blog on Al's website, I read about the little almost ghost town of Vidal, Californina. Only about 50 miles from here straight up highway 95. Just turn North at Blythe, California.
I figured everyone was getting tired of reading about motorhome cleaning, so I decided to make an early run up there with my camera in hand. I've got to be home before the 4:30 Superbowl game tonight.
Only had my ten Ritz crackers and skipped all the other breakfast courses. Even forgot to take my pills. Took Yuma for a walk around the desert.

We were out of here by 9 o'clock which is early for me. I think I like getting up early. I can do more in a day that way.
Over the Dome Rock Mountains heading West into California we went till we reached Blythe.
Turned onto highway 95. It is a beautiful drive along the Colorado River with mountains everywhere.
So glad, I broke away today. I was beginning to forget what I came out here for. To explore of course. Could see the Colorado River to my right, so we pulled in to take a look. It is a beautiful river.
Stopped at another sandy road leading to the river.

|Look Dad, green grass down here.|
|Turned onto the old highway 95 and here is the end of it.|
|Aww! Ain't he cute!|
|Looks to be made of adobe mud.|
|Nicest place here.|
|I agree. Time to head home.|
We made a fast return and when we got to Ehrenberg, I was so hungry I stopped at a Wendy's and pigged out. I had a double cheeseburger with fries and a coke. Yuma had a single plain burger and some of my fries. Boy, was it delicious. I'm going to do this again! Again, a lot!
Got home around 2 o'clock and rested for a bit. Little tired from all the carbs I ate. But found enough energy to clean the windshield and the cab side windows.
I have been watching the Super Bowl LIV as I have been writing my post. Very close game between the SF 49ers and my team, the KC Chiefs. The Chiefs just went ahead with 2:44 left. Exciting! Score is 24-20. Come on KC! Oh boy, KC makes another touchdown. 31-20 now with a minute left. KC intercepts the ball! Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl LIV!!! :))
