|Finally we make it to our winter home in the desert just south of Quartzsite. It was raining all day on the way here and we were told the desert will bloom in the spring thanks to the rain. It's been 4 years since this has happened. Something to look forward to. We waited for a nice sunny day to set up camp and then joined some fellow campers for a social hour where we found out there will be a big Christmas pot luck with all the fixings out in the desert so we're looking forward to that.
