Sunday January 10, 2016 Trip to Palm Canyon with Alan

Cloudy with a little drizzle this morning. Over night low was 37F and high today was 58F. Very little wind and the sun peeked out every once in awhile.

At noon went down to join Alan at his Kofa National Wild Life Reserve camp site. He is about 15 miles south of Quartzsite with beautiful views of the Kofa Mountains.

We drove down to Stone Cabin to have lunch at Randy’s, but even though there were lots of open signs, no Randy. Went on to Palm Canyon stopping on the way to take pictures in the desert.

We went up the road to Palm Canyon. There was a home built 4 wheel drive expedition vehicle from Alaska in the parking lot.

Getting to the palms is a tough half mile hike. We didn’t have any water with us, so decided not to do it.

We again checked to see if Randy was open at Stone Cabin, but he wasn’t. I was really set on having one of his hamburgers. We went back to Alan’s motor home and sat outside and drank Starbuck’s Verona coffee that Alan made in a French press.

Got back to our motor home about 4:30PM and set up the satellite TV.
