Moving North - Slowly

'll This past month has found us slowly moving North, towards Alaska. After we left Seal Beach, we spent a week at  Fairways RV Park at the Naval Base in Port Heuneme, CA. We enjoyed our lazy stay there, visiting Point Mugu and catching up on some more computer work. After our week here, we moved a little further north to the California Army National Guard campground at Cam San Luis Obispo, C...

Family and Friends

While staying at Borrego Springs, we tried to do some exploring. We took a day's off-road trip through MANY trails. The scenery was unique and interesting, but eventually we got tired of the bouncing around. Another day found us hiking from the Anza Borrego State Park visitors center to Palm Canyon. This was about a 5 mile hike. It was pleasant hiking up to the canyon on a relatively easy tra...

Friends were recently here and told us about the Sculptures of Ricardo Breceda scattered around the Galleta Meadows estate.

Joshua Tree National Park

We've had a very relaxing week. After leaving Quartzsite, AZ, we moved a few hours West to Joshua Tree National Park. Instead of camping in the park, we stayed on BLM land just outside of the South entrance to the park. There's a free 14-day stay limit there. But we soon realized almost all of the "interesting" things to see in Joshua Tree NP is near the West or North entrances. This is over an ho...
