Last Monday our son Edd came from Vancouver Island to visit us at Anza Borrego SP. He arrived Monday night at the Palm Springs Airport and he left Friday morning, which meant he only had three full days.
Tuesday we walked to the dry lake bed, drove up Montezuma Highway,went to the visitors center and drove around looking at some of the metal statues.

Wednesday Slot Canyon
Skip is not taking out the garbage, we had stopped at the fruit stand and bought oranges, but we didn’t bring a back pack because of the narrow canyon.
Thursday Ghost Mountain
We have visited the Marshall South Home site five times, and each time we are in awestruck, by the beauty and thought of the life the south family experienced at the top of Ghost Mountain.
Looking down at Blair Valley
We met a man on the mountain who had come to spend the night camping by the remains of the homestead. He knew a lot about Marshall South and his family, and told us that Rider South the eldest son had led a group up the mountain, seven or eight weeks previously. We chatted with him for quite a while, before he went to set up his tent and we went down the mountain.

We had a fun week which passed too quickly, it was so nice having Edd visit.
We will be leaving Borrego on Tuesday, heading for Ogilbe Rd for a week or so, we haven’t decided where we will be after that.
