Today Kim & Wendy took us "Jeeping" in the desert. We went west of town and explored the area of Dome Rock. They had gone the other day and checked out the dirt roads, but we still explored some new ones.

There were plenty of piles of tailings from mine shafts. And there were current working mines with "Keep Out" signs. We went up on a hill and had an awesome view of the Quartzsite area. It is amazing to see how many people boondock (dry camp) in the desert for the winter. Most places it is free, but you still need to get the permit. Not for me, for too long anyway, I need my utilities.
