Off to the Desert
The weather report called for a week full of rain so what better time to head for the desert. We drove for 467 miles to Adelanto. We found an RV park there whose residents would be classified as homeless if not for their desert worn trailer or camper. I was curious as to what prompted the “NO PIT BULLS” portion of the sign but there was no one around to ask. Well there was the “assistant manager” as she called herself. She pulled up alongside in her car which looked like she was living out of it, but I never got around to asking. We moved on down the road, ate an authentic Mexican food dinner at a truck stop and over-nighted with the truckers. The next morning we continued on to Anza Borrego arriving at lunch time. The temperature was 75 degrees but it seemed warm to us. We’ll need some time to adjust. Later the wind picked up and it howled all night long. In the morning the wind was still with us which makes for difficult picture taking. We drove on in to Borrego Springs, ate breakfast, bought a bag of oranges and grapefruit and found a hotspot to get online.
