Down a Dusty Road in the Buckskin Mountains...


 You can reach what use to be an old mining camp...filled with vehicles of all kinds!
There are the oddest collection of buildings...

And stuff...
 Different Washrooms...
 The ladies washroom is built right against the rocks..with all metal doors...
When washing your hands you have a wonderful view!
We meet some wonderful friends from back home !!
Had a great time visiting over lunch
 (no waitresses here... you stand in a long line to place you order!!!)

It is truly a fun experience.... and what is the place???
 There you have it... The Desert Bar...opened since 1983...and growing every year!!
Before we knew it ...it was time to hit the road and head on out.... 
It's a five mile drive off the Highway.......but a fun time!!

Sunset - Moon Rise

Sunset at the Sand Dunes.... in the western sky...
Then in the eastern sky....Moonshine!!
I'm thinking this will be the last Yuma moon we'll see for awhile!

Sea Life...

We visited a beach...the rookery where the Elephant Seals hang out...
The beach was covered  with sleeping Elephant Seals!!
The birthing and breeding was over... the females had left the Rockery...
The males and babies were left... (Females spend 4 weeks with their young)
Soon the babies will be heading into the sea...
 We were told these seals were in a deep sleep....
but this guy I think was starting to wake up!!

Beachy Time...

Hubby and I took a break from the hot dry sun of the desert....

We enjoyed the sounds of the ocean...
The fog and moisture...

Walks along the sand...

It was a nice change....

for a few days.....
