More of the Same

Today started off a little overcast but that made for a much better sunrise than other mornings.


Meg and I took off on our walk today and decided to see if we could find those Desert Bighorns that Mike and Janna saw yesterday. We found the sheep but they had moved up the hill so we ended up climbing right up to the top of the highest peak in our area. Nice to see those guys moving around on that steep hill and even though we were unable to get any real close-ups we did see them so the walk was a success. We like to do about 4-5 miles everyday but today that 4 miles included a lot of vertical work so maybe tomorrow we will take an easier route. By the time we got halfway up the peak the clouds had burned off and it turned into another hot sunny day.

While we were up there I thought I should take a couple of shots of our area. The only rigs in site are ours and Mike and Janna’s.


This afternoon we took a road trip over to the Quartzsite area with the Clarks to have a look at a trailer and solar system and then we stopped in town for a bite of supper at the Grubstake.

Caught this sunset on the trip




  1. sunrise or sunset..perfection in the making!!

  2. Gosh it must be peaceful and quiet there at night, except for the sound of the desert critters. Beautiful pictures.

  3. I'll tell you what... your sunrise & sunset alone is a reason enough to be there... Throw in those sheep and I am full of envy! Wish we were there too!
    Have fun & Travel safe

  4. Nice sunrise and sunset pictures. It must be great camping in the wide open spaces.

  5. Meg is going to get upset when you go out on your own.
    They sell boots for hiking dogs:

    Maybe you can get her some boots to stop her paws from getting hurt on the rough terrain.
    Happy Trails, and Misty says "woof" to Meg. Penny, TX

  6. Wow, you really are parked out in the boonies! You could sit out in your BVD's and bark at the moon to your heart's content.

    Gotta' love that boondocking lifestyle!

  7. I just LOVE that scenic shot from up high to down below... how I yearn to be there too! (I look out and all I see is snow and more snow)
