     Very warm overnight 62 f at 5 am, nice to sleep with the windows open and so quiet except for the coyotes, and the wild burros around here. We have not yet seen the burros this year but have heard them and can see their hoof prints around our campsite.
       Got a few nice walkabouts this morning enjoying this wonderful desert place that we are really loving.

Where have we been this winter ?


  1. Love the desert, day or night. We found the shade to be the perfect temperature as well. I find the sun a bit too intense to take for too long. Just getting set up was enough time in the direct sun. Love the pics of Why. We will be checking out the area over the next few days. Love the bright moon, can see for quite a distance. Enjoy!

    1. It sure is nice here in the desert. The sun is very intense here for sure.
      Love the full moon last night sure was wonderful. Welcome to the neighbourhood, enjoy the area we do.

  2. I agree we like Why too.. not sure why???

  3. You are doing some serious desert living. Sure is lot's of stuff at that place.

    1. Yes Larry we love the desert camping wide open spaces, very reasonable and no reservations.
