SOME IMPERIAL VALLEY CROPS–LOTS OF VEGGIES GROW HERE
These are some pictures we snapped of some of the crops we see driving along route 24 to the BLM land at Senator Wash. Some of the water from the Colorado River is used to irrigate these crops.
It ‘s nice to drive along and see just about every crop that can be grown profitably in this area. Sadly, there are no fresh vegetable stands near the Senator Wash campground but there is a “pick your own” farm nearby.
WE HAVE MOVED TO HURRICANE RIDGE
The camping at the shore of Senator Wash reservoir is limited to two weeks in/two weeks out so since our two weeks of shore camping was up we moved up the hill to Hurricane Ridge. At first we worried that a place with a name like Hurricane Ridge would be far too windy. Our fears were borne out by a few windy days. As it turns out it was windy in the whole area not just on Hurricane Ridge (though I think it was slightly more windy here) and now that the wind is gone except for a light breeze we are happy campers.
Jim, a fellow Lazy Daze camper, made some nice friends.
Some views of the reservoir from our Lazy Daze “living room” window. Also, the Chocolate Mountains are in the background.
The days here are beautiful and there’s usually a show of colors in the sky at sunset.
