THE WEATHER IS HERE, WISH YOU WERE BEAUTIFUL.
A variation of the popular post cards that are sold in Palm Springs gift shops; which proclaim, “The weather is beautiful, wish you were here.”
Many people I know who are campers and/or backpackers are winding down their camping and hiking activities as we head towards winter.
So this past week I headed out to camp with my beautiful wife in the high desert area of Joshua Tree National Park. Unfortunately, it didn’t dawn on me that Monday the 11th was Veterans Day and all the camp grounds were full.
So we headed to the lower Colorado Desert to a place I knew would not be crowded, where we enjoyed our fourth consecutive week of desert camping.
Joyce and I are ramping up the camping and I have several backpacking trips planned in the near future. I am happy to report that…
The weather in the desert was fabulous.
