Where are we today
clic on a pic to enlarge itThe early morning sunrises are wonderful, about 6 am. And as the sun rises so does the temperature. The usual walkabouts, then we getting ready to head out for a day trip.
Today we gonna take a day trip, desert drive to China Ranch, about an hour away, for the link to China Ranch click HERE . Not many roads to choose from, just get on the road and go. We hit the road at 8:30 am.
About an hour each way and luckily there was a few signs to point the way. Really an Oasis in the desert. Once there we were amazed. Sure glad we did not take the motorhome here it would have been a tough drive, if not impossible.
|this the place|
|very narrow steep roads to get there|
what an amazing discovery
Nothing real fancy just a family run operation that seems to be successful. Nice gift shop, free date samples (did not know there was so many different types of dates). And some wonderful homemade bakes goods too. All with dates.
|love the old truck|
|lots of samples and they are all good|
We bought a date/nut loaf (just like my grandmother made so long ago) and some fresh dates.
|so close to Death Valley too|
|Harvesting the dates|
white bags over the dates as they
mature, to keep the birds away
|we saw this wild coyote a few times|
|checked out the Modest Museum|
some old history and pictures of the past
|interesting arch on the steep road back out|
Passed through Tecopa and the rv parks with Hot Springs, almost looks like a ghost town,
Then a stop in Shoshone, no crowds today. Small village population 31.
|The famous Crowbar Cafe / Saloon|
|museum closed today|
|we both enjoy reading|
Tonight a couple fish burgers on our grill mat with a salad.
|perfect meal to end a wonderful day|
|89.3 miles return that we did today|
Glad that y'all dropped by and hope your day was a good one as well.
