This morning, we woke up to sunny skies and only a light wind, but fairly cool. Calling for a high near 65 today. We all had decided to take a rode trip over toward Saddle Mountain along the Salome Road in search of BLM land for future visits.
We were off at 9:30. Yuma and me in the Jeep and Tom, Deb, Riley and Deb in the other Jeep. We headed east towards Phoenix on I-10. It gave me a good idea of the terrain over the Kofa Mountains for Monday in the White Lion. It will be a long climb, but not a quick elevation. Looks like about 15 miles of steady climb, so it will let me know in quick order how things are going to go with the WL overheating problem. I can always turn around and roll back to Quartzsite.
Took about an hour to get to the Salome Road exit. Saddleback Mountain is in full view.We have all stayed in the shadow of this mountain on the BLM land. They built a large pig or cattle containment facility near there and the area is now infested with flies on warm days. That's why we are searching for new home nearby. My plans are to stay there next week if the flies aren't bad.
