... cool hike. And I was surprised my legs were fine. I literally haven't exercised since Labor Day, so I was very worried. But I did good.
My next stop was Jumbo Rocks, to do the nature trail I'd skipped the day before. There were lots of really cool rocks, and the afternoon sun was perfect for pictures. I went by Skull Rock again, but there were so many people there that I didn't even stop. I already had people-free pictures.

Leaving Laughlin, we head south on Hwy 95 and pick Joshua ...
... warning signs on interstate 10 about dust storms but got off the highway to head to Salton Seas. The section of 10 after that near Palm Springs to Los Angles was closed down. The girl's brother was driving home from work and had to drive into the desert to get off the road and just park the car and hope no one would hit him. Everyone is saying the past few days of storms are some of the worst they have seen in over 50 ...
