Before we headed out of town this morning, we went to a shrimp farm here in the desert. They import the eggs from FL., and are smaller then a Nat.
The shrimp are pond grown in well water pumped directly from Arizona’s deep ancient seabeds. this mineral rich water is monitored and kept free from contaminants. I will let you know how they taste we purchased a couple of pounds.
We drove 136 miles today to Quartzsite for a 2 night stay, on our way to Death Valley. It is much cooler here then it was in Tucson.
Gas prices are going up. In Tucson it was $1.73 a gallon and we saw prices as high as $2.09. We paid $1.89 here in Quartzsite.
The desert is blooming some and is very pretty on the sides of the road and mountains.
