Tuesday morning we took the coach into the shop for some warrantee work, but about 2 in the afternoon we found that they couldn’t really do anything until they got “authorization” from Four Winds. Now we are back out looking for a new campsite that will take us until Tuesday of next week. After paying the $32 a night at the last campground, I was looking to save some money, so having been told about the Imperial Dam BLM camping we were on our way to see just what this was all about. BLM (Bureau of Land Management) has quite a number of good campsites all around the country and we have heard nothing but good things about all of them. This one is located beside the Colorado River and the Imperial Dam. There are RV’s parked all over this desert area, some in pre-marked camping locations and others are just scattered throughout the desert. They all have one thing in common…no hook-ups, just “dry camping”. We can run our generator if necessary and we have enough fresh water to last at least 7 to 10 days. One of the biggest draws to this site is the water. We have the most beautiful little bay just outside of our window. It comes off of the river about a ½ mile away and from that, it flows all around the hills in the area, making up these little lakes. All of these lakes are tied together by a beautiful waterway through the high grass and reeds. There isn’t just one waterway, there a many and each one is something special. We watch the many water birds scurry away as we row close and we watch the larger egret’s fish from the shores. We’ve also had sightings of 2 large mountain goats, a coyote, and fish in the crystal clear water. Our first afternoon of kayaking, took us to some incredible photo opportunities. I’m sure we will be on the water more over the next week.
