We managed to get in and set up before the rain that teased us all day finally arrived in earnest.
The ride here was a pleasant one, until we hit the big city traffic. No incidents, just lots of traffic that we usually try to avoid.
We drove through the Imperial Sand Dunes, along the All American Canal, and "the wall", past huge energy producing fields. I-8 took us from sea level to over 4,000 feet in one long, continuous ribbon, then down again.
