Friday morning, 12/26 was another travel day. It was time to lift our jacks and reluctantly leave the Jojoba Hills SKP Park. So after getting everything stowed and making one more trip to one of the lemon tree’s to pick a couple fresh lemons for the road we were off, but we WILL return.
We didn’t really have a long travel day but we had to go in the opposite direction to Temecula in order to fuel up the motorhome before back tracking and going towards Borrego Springs. We were told there is no real good place to fuel up a rig our size in Borrego and if you remember, we sort of took the wrong route from Indio/Palm Springs when going to Jojoba and missed all opportunities to fuel up LOL!! And because our generator and Aqua-Hot will not run if our tank gets below ¼ we figured we had better be safe if we plan to boondock part of our time while in Borrego.
After fueling we took HWY 79 to S2 and then HWY 78 to S3 (Yaqui Pass Road) which spit us out at Christmas Circle in Borrego Springs and then we easily found our way to The Springs at Borrego RV Park.
I think our sized rig was about all that Yaqui Pass Road could handle. There certainly were a few turns that we wouldn’t have wanted to meet another big rig on but not all that bad, just winding enough to make me chuckle a few times.
Once all set up and after a little lunch we jumped in the Jeep for a little tour of the area. Before long we happened across the Visitor Center at the Anza-Borrego State Park and made a stop to check it out.
By the time we left the Visitor Center the sun had dropped behind the mountains and it cooled down so we decided to head home. But before we got home something caught my eye!!! The Fudge Factory that someone told us we just HAD to stop at, so we did. After a small purchase we continued towards home. But things kept catching my eye. This time it was a few of the Carlos Breceda metal sculptures that Borrego is so well known for.
We plan to spend time searching them all out while here and will certainly do another update about them but here are a couple pictures to wet your whistles. Keep in mind these were taken with our phone well after sunset. There are supposed to be 140 of these type things scattered around in the desert.
Once we finally got home and after a dinner of leftover chili I took a stroll around the park to gaze at some of the holiday lighting throughout the park before calling it a night.
