Re: Anza Borrego over New years (Was Mojave)
Thanks to all, we had a great time. It was fun to meet new folks and we hope to do it again some day. After departing, we moved camp to a different wash, where unbelievably we ran across long lost friends I hadn't seen them in over ten years, since they moved from Berkeley to British Columbia. We had a great reunion, and lots of laughs. There was one potential tragedy though, when one of the gals was on a hike and fell fully into the arms of a big Cholla cactus. Fortunately,there were several other folks along who ever so carefully extracted her from the Chollas grip. Oddly, she had no reservations about stripping off her clothes and letting everyone work on removing the spines. The worst was one huge one that actually stapled her butt cheeks together. She was a trouper though, and after ice, some antibiotic cream, and more than a little wine was in great spirits. I latter proclaimed her as the high priestess of the Cholla, a title that will stick with her for the remainder of her life.
So, we're still on the road, and after a stop at Ramsey's, will be off to Death Valley. Any one care to join us?
