St. Patrick's Day in Anza Borrego

Rob was out from Pittsburgh for a conference so we hit Anza Borrego for the weekend and had some Irish weather for the holiday.

Nice.

It's 82F here and we're planning to camp this weekend. All we may get is rain.

I like this one:


I dig these it's-so-cold-we're-cooking-in-the-car pics.

However, this pic is a total rip-off:


Where's the Milgauss?

It wasn't really all that cold it was just a torrential down pour with crazy wind. I've never had a gust of wind bend a tent pole before, but I have now. Actually, of all the rainy nights I've been subjected to camping in PA over the years, I don't think I've never had one as bad as Saturday night.

The amazing thing was I stayed dry - Big Agnes Copper Canyon 1UL tent gets a big thumbs up.

Looks like a great trip. I love the photos but that tilt-shift is driving me nuts.

A couple more pictures from my collection.

JSQ thought that my work trip might coincide with the wildflower bloom. I guess not.


I hiked up the mountain we camped next to on Saturday morning while Jack got some extra rest. I was racing to get to the top before the weather turned. Here are some pictures from the top. Actually I never made it to the real top. It was a false peak and the weather was quite wicked there so I called it enough and came back down.





The picture doesn't capture it well but I got I got a glimpse of a rainbow for our St Patrick's weekend.



We enjoyed the soda bread lunch and tea and then hit the road as the sky's were looking ominous.



We stopped to admire the catbox.




Just after the catbox, Jack let me drive. I had not drove a stick in about 5 years. Jack learned me about proper shifting and gear synchronizations.



Soon enough the rain had started and we decided to start heading toward a camp sight that would allow us to survive the weather for the night.







And then my camera battery died.

The end.
