Many people think there is nothing to do out there in the barren desert but for some reason we keep coming back and never seem to run out of things to do. There are, reportedly, over 500 miles of dirt …

Borrego Springs Clark Dry Lake

We left Quartzsite after the RV Big Tent and headed west on I-10 and then south on 78 towards Borrego Springs. The weather had been quite windy and cold but the dunes still did not disappoint.   We came into Borrego Springs from the south and the sky was dark and cloudy due to the storms (which is helping tremendously …

Picnic Grounds Rd Mono Lake

As we leave Lone Pine and head north on Hwy 395 we have gorgeous views in all directions and not much traffic.  A wonderful drive!   We had read a few reviews about boondocking on Picnic Grounds Rd near Mono Lake so we decided we should check it out especially since we were going to be in the area.  We …

Trona Pinnacles California

We departed Laughlin, Nevada and headed to Trona, California. We drove the Joshua Tree Highway 164 to I-15.  The Joshua Tree highway has a forest of Joshua Trees along the road with more trees than Joshua Tree National Park. Just beautiful!  As we got closer to I-15 the Ivanpah Solar Power Facility became visible shining its very powerful light across …

Rockhouse Trail Borrego Springs

The area east of Peg Leg and north of S22 was taken over by Anza Borrego State Park in July 2015 which effectively means no  more boondocking in that area. But a small portion off Rockhouse Trail is still available. We watched the area for a few weeks after camping just off S22 by the road and also at the …

Palm Canyon Trail

Yes, we are back. I seem to be saying that a lot lately.  When you find a good thing it is difficult not to return. After spending a few weeks boondocking we headed into the state park campground for a week of pure luxury with full hookups.  We love this place and we love this site. Campground: Anza Borrego State …
