There is life here in the desert


There were no exits for the next 12 miles because we had somehow turned onto I-8 instead of staying on the frontage road. The next off-ramp was the town of Dateland. We had planned to travel to Dateland in a few weeks to see some friends who moved from the park where we are currently located, so it turned out to be a 'Good Thing Anyway'. Dateland, as you might have guessed, grows dates! They have two RV Parks here, a large gas station, and Quizno's. Shopping is somewhat limited here, so the folks who stay at these two parks will drive about 70 miles into Yuma for the 'serious' grocery shopping. One may give up local access to groceries, but here at night you can see the Milky Way and the desert views are absolutely beautiful. It is also extremely quiet here, except for the trains that travel through at all hours of the day and night :-0. We have some pictures for you. Mike and Nancy
