This morning at 1 o'clock, Yuma decided to go outside. Put on my robe and grabbed his leash and a small flashlight and headed outside. I had no clue where the nearest bush was, so just started walking.
The light was not strong and I kept walking and never ran into one. Finally, Yuma just did his thing on the ground and we headed back. I've learned over the years to leave a light on or I could lose the White Lion too.
I was now wide awake, so I thought I would be first with the Wordle games. I went through them in no time and posted them at 2 o'clock and then went back to sleep, happy to have that done for the morning.
Was awake by 8 o'clock and turned on the heat to get breakfast going. Finally stepped outside and it was warmer out there than inside. Beautiful 70 degree day ahead with little wind and lots of sun.
At 10 o'clock, Deb and Riley stopped by to bring me a stick of butter. Forgot the butter yesterday. Deb was supposed to use my plug puller to pull the plug from her generator, but she called someone in town to tune it up and they will take care of the plug problem.
It was 12:30 when Yuma and I decided to run down to the U.S. border and get some pictures of the Colorado River and the Wall. Only about two miles as the crow flies, but we took the road and that made it six miles.
The sandy road took us around the west side of Pilot Knob and then turned to the east on the south side of the mountain.

|Colorado River and the Wall. Is that a raft I see on the Mexican side?|
|Yes, it is!|
|There's another one in the middle of the river. See how fast that current is traveling toward the Imperial Sand Dunes?|
Beautiful area of the Colorado River coming from Yuma, Arizona. However, it is very remote and not seen by most folks unfamiliar with the area.
The Algodones International Border crossing to the left across the river.
|End of the line. Time to head home.|
|On our walk today, I zoomed in on the Imperial Sand Dunes west of camp.|
We took that drive. I was surprised about the beauty of the area. It was a nice surprise.ReplyDelete
It is a pretty section with all the foliage and palm trees.Delete
Beautiful pictures today Doug! Interesting to see the Wall!ReplyDelete
Thank you Ellen. Glad to see you're tagging along again this winter.Delete
Great photos of the Colrado River and surrounding area. Pilot Knob reallyvstands out. Looks like those inflatable rafts were just abandon there. Glad you had such a nice day to explore.ReplyDelete
I hope they are abandoned, but they seem to be convenient.Delete
Enjoyed the pictures We always enjoy riding in that area. I could almost feel the warmth...lolReplyDelete
There is a lot to see around the Yuma area. Taking my time here waiting for you two to return.Delete
Very nice pics of the area and the river and ... The Wall.ReplyDelete
I know you have taken many pics of Felicity, but have you been in side for the 'History of the World'? Certainly worth a visit.
Never been inside. May just have to do it this time around.Delete
Very pretty area. Looking into Mexico was interesting. Very shiny Jeep!ReplyDelete
Such a gorgeous but scary place to drive. Rafts not abandoned ... they use them to take illegals and drugs across the river. Some people say they have paid $3,000 each to get over the border. Sad they are taking advantage of those folks.ReplyDelete
Beautiful drive, we did that with Tom and Deb one year :) Nice to have friends drop by with the butter :)ReplyDelete
