We traveled through “our” lovely Anza-Borrego Desert State Park before heading north and skirting the west shore of the Salton Sea. We arrived at our overnight destination of Chiriaco Summit Dry Camp at 6:00 p.m. It was quite windy and in the mid-70s, so nighttime temperatures were very comfortable. Margaret and I heated up delicious leftovers of Sesame Tofu Drops and her “famous” Herbed Lentils & Rice Casserole for dinner and watched the first episode of Bosch, Season 5.

On our second day at White Tank Campground, I took the short walk (about a half mile) to Arch Rock and enjoyed the beautiful weather, rock outcroppings, and desert flora. Margaret took Peaches for walks around the campground. (Dogs are not allowed on the trails.) Margaret and I had delicious Tofurky sandwiches for dinner and watched two more episodes of Bosch. We very much enjoyed our stay at White Tank and plan to visit there again in the future.

On our drive out of Joshua Tree National Park, we spied this beautiful Joshua tree specimen:
