Borrego Springs on Monday 4-8-13
We spent the weekend plus one in Borrego Springs at the Palm Canyon Campground in the State Park. Everything was going well in fact we even were able to watch the PegLeg Smith Liar's contest on Saturday night. (That was a hoot!). Monday at O'dark thirty the wind came up...big time. It was blowing dust at sun-up and by about 9:00 according to the ranger it was at about 80mph. The dust had turned to gravel. We stayed inside the AS and rode it out. I don't think Bambi sustained any damage but she got very dirty. We left and slowly made our way back to San Diego. As soon as we were out the the desert and the pass where the wind was coming from it was a nice ride.
I guess that happens every now and then. Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos during the dust storm as I thought it would wreck my camera or iphone.
