Anza Borrego Blair Valley Pictograps Trail

Blair Valley sits on the east side of S2 south of Hwy 78 in the Anza Borrego State Park and was once the home of Marshall South who lived with his family atop Ghost Mountain. The valley offers excellent dry camping and if your rig is a 4WD you can find excellent isolated spots to camp. Have I mentioned I …

Anza Borrego San Felipe Wash

After every hike we take I always say “Wow that was my favourite hike ever”. Well same with this hike. But then you go on the next hike and at the moment it seems like the best. It reminds me of the Annie Leibowitz quote when asked what her favourite photograph is and she replied “The next one”. Well that’s …

Anza Borrego Wind Caves

We headed out Highway 22 east to mile marker 38.4 and turned south on the dirt road to the Arroyo Salado …

ThoseYounGuys-Anza Borrego-WilsonTrail-004

Another beautiful day in Anza Borrego so another day to go on a long hike. We choose Wilson Trail, a “moderate” hike we have had our eye on for several years but there just never seemed to be enough time. Wilson Trail follows Pinyon Ridge for about 4.5 miles which makes it a 9 mile round-trip hike. The trail head …

Those Young Guys Furnace Creek Temperature

We made reservations back last fall hence the inexpensive price, plus we used our Interagency Pass and received a discount.  The prices for the somewhat newly installed Full Hook-Ups (FHU) at Furnace Creek Campground have increased and the sites today cost quite a bit more than when we made the reservations. Note that not all the sites have FHU. Thankfully they …

Campground: Calico Ghost Town Location: Calico, California Site: A-17 Cost: $37.50 Services: FHU Comments: Fine place for doing laundry and grocery shopping but a bit crowded and busy with locals and their off-roading and lots of little parties. The site was very narrow and a bit short but we managed. They do have campfire pits but they are right up …

We really like Mojave National Preserve. There are two campgrounds, Hole-In-The-Wall and Mid Hills.  Hole-In-The-Wall can easily fit big rigs but Mid Hills tends to be more for tenters. A small RV or camper can easily fit there though. And we found some “OH SO GREAT” boondocking spots but know we could never get our big rig to them. Oh …

To get here you drive north from Wenden, Arizona on Alamo Rd, there is one main way in and one way out. There are some other roads such as Wickenburg Rd but we are not sure if they are paved or not. We drove the Salome Hwy off of I-10 to Wenden and both that highway and Alamo Rd were …
