Desert Adventures...

Hub and I took off last thursday and headed into the Anza Borrego desert again to Play :)
The jeep survived her maiden voyage and tow'd just fine... I was a nervous wreck tho.. and had to keep checking the camera to make sure he was still back there!

One day I will relax.

We trail'd and hiked ..and got to see some Pictographs left by Indians many moons ago! That was really cool...and lots of Morteros (grinding stones) ..which they use to grind their food on.

Then our Jeep took us over a 'moderate' off road trail thru Oriflamme Canyon ..which was a lil scary in some parts... steep rocky paths.. switchbacks..and obstacles in the way... but the views were amazing! And.. the feeling of being out in the middle of nature..with no one around for miles makes ya feel like a true explorer

(ok..so we weren't totally alone.. we did take along trusty 'Martha".. you remember her..dont ya?? My husbands "other woman".. hehehe.. Martha is a GPS system that tim just Lovesssssss) lol

our 'camp': (same spot we parked at last time)

dinner.. scallops..asparagus..and tilapia:

finally getting to drive!!!

Tim and the Pictographs:

the easy part of the trail:

Tomorrow we're heading up to Big Bear to explore up there and hit the trails!! So I'll be back in a few days to post pics of that trip..
In the meantime..if anyone knows where I can find "jeep" fabric.. (i'd like navy blue background..with jeep jeep jeep written allll over it).. I'd appreciate the help. I've searched.. but so far.. no luck.
Although..i did find this cute tank top on Ebay.. " Go Topless!!!"
and sexy lil thongs!! I just might have to get them! ;)

It looks like you have been having "nothing but FUN"!!!

My son was at Anzo Borrego last weekend too. He went to see the meteor showers. Did you see him there? (just kidding) He was there though.

Such a fun blog place!
