Today we return to California!  However, to delay our return home we are stopping to spend the night with like-minded friends in Palm Desert…

First, we had to deal with a torrential downpour as we were dumping, disconnecting, and hitching up.  I soaked through two rain coats and several hats before we were on our way…

And then the sun came out…

The Arizona desert is bleak…

We stopped in Quartzite for fuel…

…and a little refreshment… (Friends of ours own this franchise…)

They do have interesting food in Quartzite…

More desert, then the border:

We cleared inspection, and were allowed to enter…

The California desert is just as bleak as it is in Arizona…

And then we were in Palm Desert; ew, ew,ew, looking out my back door… (actually Doug’s back door…)

Happy Hours ensued, and we see dinner coming…

And an enjoyable time was had by all…
