We are still at Holtville, the weather has been a bit cooler the last two days,but the forecast is for 80 degrees starting tomorrow.
We drove to Holtville North LTVA, which is on the other side of highway 8. the Hot Springs are right along side the highway.
There were three or four men in the pools
The pond around the Hot Springs
The Hot Springs are not on but right beside the LTVA. I read that they are kept clean by the RVers.
We also drove down highway 98 to looks at Tamarisk LTVA which is about 15 miles east of Holtville. The shoulders of the highway were flat and perfectly smooth.
We found out why when we came across a Border Patrol Car driving back and forth dragging a tire attached to the car by chains. Then if anyone comes across the border illegally they can see their footprints. I wanted to take a picture of the car but when Skip slowed down, the Border Patrol car stopped too, and I didn’t feel right taking the picture. In other words I chickened out.
Tamarisk is the smallest of the LTVAs , It is basically a rectangular area edged with Tamarisk Trees.
It certainly wouldn’t be for everyone, unless sitting in the sun reading or doing a hobby for a week or two suits you.
The plan is to stay here until Monday, when we will drive to El Cajon and stay overnight, then leave early Tuesday morning for the coast. Hopefully we will be north of Los Angeles when we stop for the night. As usual that is subject to change.
