The first photos are in Anza/Borreggo park. We did a number of hikes,saw some wildflowers and palm trees. Nice weather. Then we headed to the Salton Sea preserve. There were farm fields that Rick really enjoyed seeing. The Salton Sea preserve is a huge preserve for waterbirds and ducks. There were 4 different geo-thermal plants in the area. Green energy plants. Joshua Tree National Park was very interesting. Seeing the huge rocks and the erosion and how everything was formed. Amazing!!!! The joshua trees reminded me of Gumby. They were cool. Notice the crow in the tree of the joshua tree by the road. We didn't stay in Quartzite, it was an experience. We are back at Cave Creek. It rained on Saturday nite, but no where near what we had the last time in January. No houses damaged. Should be in 70* tomorrow.
