Jan 9, 2009 - Desert Center, CA

We drove only a very short distance to get to Desert Center. Nothing here, but we are delaying arrival at the Bluegrass Festival. We drove out to Eagle Mountain which is a town that was a mine for Kaiser that closed in 1982. It is now a ghost town, but there is a guard and the town is fenced so you can't go in. We then drove over to a fish farm and checked it out.... nobody was there. Then we drove around the desert just checking things out. We stopped by Eagle Mountain Pump Plant by the Metropolitan Water District. The place is fenced and...

Mar 10, 2008 - Lake Tamarisk Resort ~ Desert Center California

However, this place bordered on "maybe we oughta just keep going and look for a truckstop?" Not too bad once we were parked, though. Quiet enough and the power/hookups were fine. But I doubt we'll go back. The only humerous (?) aspect of the campground was the owner. She was a laundry nazi. Only white items in this washer, only dark ones this this one, etc. and she hung around yakking (and yakking, and yakking) to see that...

Sep 30, 2005 - Joshua Tree National Park, California

Joshua Tree National Park, California 30 september Aan al het goede komt een eind, dus ook aan dit fijne verblijf in Santa Monica. Daar hadden we nog best wel wat langer kunnen luieren. Gelukkig hadden we weer een interessante bestemming voor vandaag. Van de kust gingen we ons verplaatsen naar het woestijngebied van Californie en wel naar Joshua Tree National Park. Toen we de "heavy traffic" rondom downtown L.A. gepasseerd waren konden we nog een heel stuk verder genieten van de San Bernadino mountains en de Santa Rosa Mountains, die samen...
