One of my favorite places…
Anza Borrego State Park has to be one of my most favorite places. It is located in the desert east of Oceanside. I guess the main reason I like it is the peace and calm of the desert. This is my 2nd year here and it gives me time to sort out my rig and my thoughts to prepare for the year. You can park just about anywhere you like, but I found out yesterday that it pays to park on some higher ground. I found a nice spot, but had no Internet or cell phone connections. So I moved to a little higher ground and the connections are much better. It isn’t the fastest Internet where I am now but who is in a big hurry anyway. However my closest neighbor is at least a half mile away.
This is my campsite now. Doesn’t it look familiar? I am not sure how close I was to the spot where I took my header photo above, but it is very close to it. The only thing that is missing is the rainbow and that might just come a bit later. Stay tuned.
Love the mountains
Here are a few pics I got while enjoying my adult beverage. I even got this pic of myself!
I am located near Clark Dry Lake just about 7 miles from Borrego Springs.
This is the Santa Rosa mountain range.
The end of the day.
Millions of stars in the sky
I awoke at 3:30am and went outside to see the night sky. The stars were just fantastic. I tried to get a good picture of the moon but didn’t come out too good. The wind was blowing very hard and it was hard to keep my camera steady.
Batten down the hatches….
The weather prediction for the weekend is not good. It is supposed to rain Saturday thru Monday. I won’t be going anywhere until at least Tuesday. I am well stocked up with everything and tanks are empty. I don’t want to be driving around the desert while it is raining.
We love it there, too. Nice to be so close to town but feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Hope the weatherman is wrong.
We stayed one night at Anza Borrego almost a year ago after we picked up our new rig. It was 103 degrees and very windy so we left the next morning! Beautiful but just too hot for us. I can see the appeal tho. Wide open space and not very many neighbors. Enjoy your solitude!
I sure wouldn’t be here if it was 103. It is about 80 here now and that is just fine with me.
You sure look comfy there! I think your moon shot came out just fine. Hope the rain is brief and light and that you continue to enjoy your place in the sun.
I love the Anza Borrego desert! It’s my favorite place!
What a wonderful place to spend some time….again! Yup, that shot sure looks like your header picture. Sounds like it might be good that you’re on higher ground now, with the weather that’s predicted. Continue to enjoy yourself there, as I’m certain you will. Judging from the picture of yourself, you’re looking pretty relaxed! Share the sunshine!
Hope to get there to check it out. Still in Mesa visiting with my grandson. We’re supposed to get an inch of rain tonight.
We will have to go sometime and see what it is like. Looks lovely. Enjoy!

Boy, do you ever look comfy! Beautiful moon shot. Do you ever get a nights rest?
