Desert Camping

Our first time ever camping on the desert. Jasper much prefers it after the sun goes down as in this photo. At American Girl Mine Road NW of Yuma.

A darn sight warmer than 4 nights earlier in Helena Montana.

Looks like Jasper is looking around saying "Where did winter go? This is better than a chinook!"

Jim, have you relocated your tail lights to the rear hitch box?

No doubt, though he is not thrilled with the daytime highs of 28°C. Evenings and nighttime are much better.

I just added new lights and license plate holder to match. I will be doing up a thread on it when I next get WiFi.

Usually I'm down south in the warmth and you're up freezing and doing renos. This year you're in the warmth and I'm just finishing doing a partially outside reno with weeks of incessant rain. What's wrong with that picture?

Glad the snowy part's over and you're starting to get the weather that is such a nice change from the cold northern winters. Enjoy.

Looking good Jim. Jasper appears to be thoroughly enjoying it.
