Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Goodbye Salton Sea, Hello Quartzsite

While I packed up to leave, Joyce went to take some farewell pictures of the water foul. These are young male pelicans that are getting ready for the mating season. You can tell that they are young mails by the small bump on their top beak.
This is a mix of pelicans and gulls getting ready for their morning flight.
And here they are starting to take flight.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Salton Sea. We met some really great people that were hosting the campground and we spent a lot of time talking to them. We always wish that we could stay longer but it was time to move on. We will be back next year and hope to stay longer.
Here's a bit of information of the Salton Sea.

Here's some more information on the native Americans from this area.

We said our goodbyes to our friends and headed for route 10. There is a great road that takes you through some pretty country.
There are some ares in through here where you can go off roading.
They have to plow the dirt from the road after it rains.
We made it to route 10 and after a few hours, we arrived at Quartzsite, Ar.
This is all BLM land so you just drive out and find yourself a nice spot in the desert. There are many other RV's around us but everyone is really spread out. At night they have the community campfire where they burn pallets. The stars are beautiful!!!
