Imperial Dam LTVA
After a week in Quartzsite we headed down I95 south to Yuma. Since we still had a week left on our BLM pass we decided to stay a few days boondocking at Imperial Dam LTVA. Finding a good spot with Verizon is hit and miss. As we scoped out one spot we passed some donkeys lounging.
We were pretty surprised how busy it was down here. Many more people than in Quartzsite. After a bit of looking and checking Verizon speeds we found a spot that would hold both of us.
Along the way we passed out a burned out trailer. Sad to see. Not much left of it.
You see some interesting set-ups in the desert!
Our spot was at 32 53.59N 114 30.18W

The winds were non-existent and the water glassy. We spent a lot of time just floating.
The clouds just floated by and made beautiful reflections on the water.
Colorful rock reflections too.

We paddled all around the lake until the sun started to set. Always great to be on the water in the desert.
We always watch the weather closely as it can change so quickly in the desert this time of year. We cut our trip short a couple days because a huge wind storm was moving in and we didn't want to be here for 60 mph winds. We did that here before a few years ago. So we headed over to Gila Bend early to visit the petroglyphs.
On the way out it looked like a helicopter display was landing up ahead of us. Funny.
We stopped in Dateland to gas up and introduce Rick and Angie to the Date Shake. They are tasty!
