Winterhaven, California

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 90 miles from Slab City to Winterhaven, California. I’m parked next to my friend Randy at the Paradise Casino about 1/4 mile from the Colorado River directly across from Yuma, Arizona.

Thanks to diffused jet contrails I was treated to an unusual desert pre-sunrise yesterday morning…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…




At 6:30 AM my friend 81-year-old Leo Perth and his 3-year-old Doberman Deja’ headed out for a brisk one hour desert walk…


Deja’ tries to find the desert owls that live in holes in the sandy desert…


A few minutes later the sun broke the horizon…



I arrived at the Paradise Casino about 2:00 PM…


As always, I like to show a photo of the random view out of the dinette window…


Later this morning I’ll cross the Colorado River into Yuma, Arizona.

Yesterday was a mostly sunny day at 69 degrees.  Forecast for today is mostly cloudy with morning showers and 67 degrees.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
