Is this the 75th anniversary of our first trip to Borrego, or could it be the 40th January visit there? Well, no, as last week we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. Quite a feat if I don't say so myself and I believe Cathie would agree. Because of the special occasion we opted to leave the RV at home and the tent wasn't too appealing for a celebration, so we rented a casita for 4 nights at Rams Hill. A nice enough place with everything one needs for such an occasion.
Of course anytime we're in Borrego, it's time for some hiking, so that's what we did. There were other things that occurred, but we won't be talking about that. As many of you may know we are getting ready to head to Spain in April to walk the Camino de Santiago. So hiking is in the cards until we leave in an effort to be ready to walk the 500 miles of the Camino. We took three, not too long hikes, one to Harper Flats, one in Rainbow Canyon and lastly up Palm Canyon. We've been to all these places before so we weren't apt to get lost.
Harper Flats is an area of heavy Native use which we saw evidence of.
NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE
LOTS OF POTTERY
On our hike up Palm Canyon we saw four Big Horn Sheep and I somehow managed to actually get a photo as proof.

I didn't take a lot of photos, but I did take our new GoPro Camera which I am still learning how to use. Boy, is there a learning curve on this piece of equipment. When I got it and brought it home, I started reading the manual. It was so confusing to me that after 4 hours of trying to figure it out I almost took it back. I kept at so that I could bore all my readers with my cinematographic talents. So, enjoy or not, this 5+ minute video of our trip.
