Relaxin’ in the Desert

Today was another great day here on Yellowbird Drive. Not a sound all night and although a few folks went by today there was hours between each incursion on our privacy. Meg and I did our regular walk and although I am doing OK, I think tomorrow I will leave my escort at home. She is getting a little footsore and doesn’t know when to quit so I guess I will have to leave her in the rig for a couple of days to give her feet a rest. Who would have guessed that I would eventually wear her out. Not me that is for sure.

This morning started off with a great sunrise but soon the clouds, if you can call those wispy things clouds, moved off and it warmed right up. The days are really pretty warm here, I think the high today was in the low 70’s, and there is not a cloud in the sky all day and that cloudless sky is pretty great for generating solar power if not great sunsets. Oh well that is a sacrifice we will have to make to keep this great weather.


Some of the desert we are seeing on our strolls through the countryside.

It has a stark beauty all of its own only emphasized by the emptiness.

This afternoon we did the tour of Bouse, that took 8 minutes, and dropped off our garbage in town, before heading over to Mike and Janna’s for supper. We had some great steaks, salad, spuds and maybe the first brussel sprouts I have ever eaten that I enjoyed. SautĂ©ed in olive oil and garlic is the secret for great brussel sprouts I guess. Mike and Janna are parked just down the desert from us but almost out of sight from our spot. Here are a couple of photos I took from a hill to the west of us today. There are two little red spots on the photo below Mike and Janna’s rig is on the right.





  1. Sure looks like a great spot to be in! The landscape just goes and goes and goes as far as you can see. Thanks for the great pics!
