... CA177s to I-10w. Desert. We exited a few miles west onto Box Canyon Rd. I felt like a Tom Terrific cartoon when the road kept getting smaller and smaller. It seemed like it could turn into a dirt road but instead became a beautiful Box Canyon road opening at the other end to lush irrigated farm land and a 60 mile lake.
In Mecca, on the north shore, we intersected CA 111 and rode around ...

... the road.
We reached Travis' house on the El Centro Naval Base well after sunset - Adrienne and Garrett were there waiting for us with some homemade spaghetti and apple pie (Mmmm... my favorite desert).
The kids spent the night with their cousins in Travis' house. Travis booked a room on the base lodging which consisted of some mobile homes - one for Laneshia and I and another for my parents and Shaunette. These were some nice places to lay our head after a long day. Good ...
