The Road To San Diego

This week Senor Ping and I took an overnight trip to San Diego. We left Yuma early in the morning and enjoyed a very scenic 3 hour drive. The I-8 took us through the agricultural area west of Yuma and we saw the field workers already at work picking cauliflower. The Algodones Sand Dunes were spectacular. We saw numerous dune buggies and quads driving through the dunes, as well as the border patrol checking for illegals. The mountainous area was very different from the Canadian Rockies, huge boulders and rock formations with very little vegetation. On the way back we stopped at the Viejas Casino and Outlet Shopping Center. The shopping center has beautiful landscaping including fountains, plants and a large area for entertainment. The RV parks in Yuma offer day trips to Viejas and I could see myself making a return trip another year.
