Lots of social distancing in the Desert! Anza Borrego, Blythe, Lake Havasu

Flaunting stay home orders, we took off for Anza Borrego. The lockdown was obvious as the park was closed – meaning, all side roads blocked, all campgrounds closed, off road rv dry camp sites closed, restrooms closed. We managed to pull over to take wildflower photos.

Borrego Springs pretty much closed – restaurants take out only, shops closed but Pablitos was open for pick up food and margaritas.

Palm Canyon Hotel & RV park was open – we have long time reservations. The pool was open, and good thing because it was 100 degrees out.

 

Moving on we headed for Blythe for a stay at the Cove RV Park. Pool was closed but our campsite was right over a little beach with a lovely river view.

Leaving Blythe we drove to Lake Havasu – same scenario but we found a nice rv park and stayed the night. Had a view of the lake .

Poppies in Lancaster; Kill Bill Church

The poppy preserve may be closed, and we are all on a stay home mandate, but its hard to resist this superbloom not far from home. Head to the preserve and before you get there you will be in the midst of miles of gold under a blue sky.

 

 

AND SO, AFTER A FEW HOURS IN THE MIDST OF CALIFORNIA BEAUTY WE MOVE ON A FEW MILES TO THE FAMOUS KILL BILL CHURCH. The lonely Sanctuary Adventist Church was cast as the Two Pines Wedding Chapel for the wedding massacre in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill Vol. 1” (2003)

 

Headed home we visited Kimball (masks on) in his Juniper forest home in Pearblossom.
