Suzanne and Roy came by Saturday afternoon and asked if we were going on a ride Sunday. “Sure” I said. “Where do you want to go”?

Suzanne said that she would like to go to the Sand Dune park west of Quartzsite near the Colorado River; so around 10:30 Sunday morning, we left the RV park with the usual suspects


and drove out Dome Rock Road to the end where we got onto the Pipeline Road.


We followed it to the sand dunes,


where we played in the sand for a little while.

The ATV drivers showed off a bit in a sand bowl.


Even though I don’t usually like to drive in sand because it gets into everything and is very destructive, I had to show them that Jeeps could play this game too so I took a turn through the bowl.


I would have been very embarrassed if I had gotten stuck but I with the tire pressure down to 20 psi. I figured it would work out okay and it did.

We only played there for a short time and then headed for the Colorado River where we stopped for lunch.


After lunch we drove south along the river until we came to the power lines. We got on the Power Line Road and followed it back to Quartzsite.



Patti and I  hadn’t taken anything out of the freezer for supper so we asked the group if they wanted to go The Grubstake Cafe “Grubbies” for dinner.  Junior was in a hurry to get home to watch a football game so the rest of us went to Grubbies.

It was another fun day in the desert.
