We decided to make a quick overnight camping trip over to Niland CA. and Bashfords Mineral Spa. Packed up the hack and left Yuma around 11:00 AM Sat. I had purchased an expensive pair of sleeping pads (Thermarest-NeoAir) and was dying to try them out in the rocks of the famous Bashfords "Outback". We pulled out of home at a pleasant 78 degrees and headed out over the Colorado River into Ca.
The pyramid below is known to be "The Center of the Earth" is these parts. Not sure what it is all about but it is a cool building.
Great contrast where the dunes end and the bleak desert begins.
We pulled into Bahfords Spa to find the office now a vacant lot. Found that the office/residence burned down last summer.
Our camping spot in the Outback. Had a great sunset.
The new NeoAir sleeping pads were awesome! Even in the rocky ass camping area.
Sunday morning dawned at 70 degrees and not a breath of wind.
