Last one!


Today was a very long travel day, about 330 miles. We have safely arrived in Seeley, California, we will be here for about a month. We picked Jared up at the airport last night after work, he spent the night with us in the RV so we could leave early this morning. We got on the road about 9:45 and arrived in Seeley about 6:00 P.M.

The drive took us right by the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreational area. It was really cool to see so many dune buggies on the sand having a great time. Located in the southeast corner of California, the Imperial Sand Dunes are the largest mass of sand dunes in the state. Formed by windblown sands of ancient Lake Cahuilla, the dune system extends for more than 40 miles in a band averaging 5 miles wide. Widely known as "Glamis" and a favorite location for off-highway vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts, the dunes also offer fabulous scenery, I am adding a few pictures I managed to snag while passing by. :-)

We are looking forward to visiting the area as well as nearby Mexico. We all had a great day but we are tired and ready to rest now. Check back later for more from California.
