This golf course was getting extra detailing done as some professional golfers were stopping by. The greens take some serious watering to keep the desert at bay.
We love hiking in the slot canyons especially when we find new ones to explore.
It sure is fun hiking the curvy…..
and jaggedy canyons!
Finally climbing out of the canyon.
I think I scrunched up rather well in the hole.
Jay came down for a quick visit and of course he and Maya look a lot better in the same hole.
Maya is a real trooper on these canyon hikes. She doesn’t mind being hoisted up or down.
It’s always great hiking with family.
Hiking with friends is pretty awesome too.
Key Ranch is in Joshua Tree National Park and is a ranger guided tour. It used to be owned by a local rancher back in the early 1900’s. He must have had a thing for ovens back in the day.
Al fresco bathroom facilities.
These vehicles just need a bit of tender loving care.
The springs have sprung.
On a more serious note. We hope all our family and friends are keeping well during this difficult time. We were due to leave our RV Resort next week and start heading toward Colorado for the summer but with all the shut downs we plan on staying here for a little while longer. Our park looks like a ghost town. All the Canadians have left and most snowbirds from the northern states. The pools, gym, pickle ball ,tennis and golf facilities have closed down as we have at least one confirmed case of Coronavirus in the park.
We are still able to shop for groceries and the local stores seem to have plenty of fresh produce although they are always out of toilet paper and paper towels. Never any queues at the local liquor stores of course.
Our plan is to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, drink a good amount of red wine and hike alone in the desert until it is safe to move on.
Love and good health wishes to you all dear family and friends.
