Back to Borrego: October 23-25 of the horrible year 2020

Maybe there is hope

The desert is a tonic for the soul. A place where one can be alone with his thoughts. The wide open space clears your mind. It is calming and invigorating at the same time.

Between the pandemic and Amelia’s foot surgery we haven’t been anywhere since February, and that was when we got booted from our favorite boondock spot in Borrego, Rockhouse Rd/ Dry Clark Lake.

So we decided to treat ourselves for the weekend and stayed at a la-di-da place: The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course. It was nice and probably only 25% occupied, but I doubt we’ll be back. It’s just not our cup of tea. 

Four months post surgery and Amelia is still recovering, so it was a low key trip. We walked around for a little bit in the desert, and that was about it. But you know what, it was still nice to get away.

This Texas Ranger Sage at the resort was so full of bees you could hear it buzzing from ten yards away.

Palo Verde Wash. All day Saturday the sky was spectacular.

Lush green fairways are such a disconnect in the desert.

F you! I just love this type of roadside art.

  1. I think, if I was still in that state, I’d be going there every weekend. If ever there’s a need for more
    “Re-creating” it is now. Glad you guys got out. Loved ! The pics!

  2. Oh my gosh, it looks beautiful. I LOVE the Texas Ranger Flowers and the bee photo. Once again, thank you for “taking me” on your brave adventures. 💕 Pauly
