The wind came back this morning. Not as bad as yesterday, but very noticeable, especially coming from the north. I could see a light dusting of snow on the San Ysidro Mountains west of Borrego Springs. Not much, but looks pretty.
Even late in the afternoon, Indianhead Peak still had a little snow at the top.

We arrived to highway 78 and went through the little town of Ocotillo Wells, but didn't turn to go to Split Mountain. Just didn't feel like doing that today. Instead, we turned toward Borrego Springs, going down the Texas Dip.
Made one last stop before heading home and it wasn't Christmas Circle. I decided to find that Coyote Mountain snake one more time. Last year, it took Nick and I forever to find it. It's getting late, so better find it fast.
Now that's one big wash!
This time I went up the face of Coyote Mountain near Peg Leg Smith RV park and found it over the first summit I climbed. Yuma had his head down in the rocks sniffing out that snake.
|I see him, Dad!|
|One long snake!|
It was after 5 o'clock by the time we got home. The wind died down with the sun and hopefully will not come back tomorrow. I had a pork chop and chopped potatoes from the grill and some French beans to boot. Managed to drive about 60 miles around the valley today and even put in 6,666 steps looking for that darn snake.
Thanks for stopping by.
