The wind stopped blowing through the night, so we decided to take a trip to Ghost Mountain. Before we left we took the dogs for a walk through the desert, where we found a little campsite all out lined with rocks and in the center we found this
So about ten this morning we took the dogs and headed for Ghost Mountain, approx 25 miles from Borrego Springs, the road was really good as it winded through Yaqui Pass, and Centenac Canyon. We turned into Blair Valley, drove beside the playa until we reached the base of Ghost Mountain. Ghost Mountain is where the poet/author/artist Marshall South and his wife Tanya moved in the early nineteen thirties, then homesteaded with their three children for sixteen years atop this dry windy mountain.
The sundial was right on 12 noon
Marshall South wrote about their life in a series of monthly articles for the Desert Magazine. It has been put in book form, which I just bought, I will lend it to anyone who is interested ( except a certain person
who never returns my books..you know who you are)
We were at Ghost Mountain yesterday, today we left Anza-Borrego and we are at Salt Creek Rec. Area
at the Salton Sea.
This is kind of a long post but I couldn't pare it down.
