It was a short drive to our next stop, Borrego Springs. We left Desert Hot Springs around 11:30 this morning, took roller coaster Dillon Road to Rt. 86., then drove along the mountains through date and citrus orchards.
We had views of the Salton Sea as we approached our turn off.
The road leading to Borrego Springs, S-22, is a terrible road. It hasn't been resurfaced in....well, probably it has never been resurfaced. It's bumpy and rattly and cracked, it jumbles everything in the cupboards. One must exercise patience and just go slow for the first 10 miles or so. Let the idiots pass!
Last night's wind was forecast to return this afternoon so we were happy to have a short drive.
|Sand drifts on the road, so much better than|
We're excited to be back in this area. We love the desert here and the way the sun and clouds play over the mountains and badlands.
We're settled in to our site at The Springs at Borrego. Ex pen is up, hummingbird feeders hung, happy hour enjoyed and dinner dishes done - we're in for the night.
The wind returned a little while ago, kicking up sand in the desert outside of our park, but we're snug and sand free inside Beluga, so let it blow!
