The Guys Went On A Road Trip

The Old Plank Road is located in Imperial County in California.

The road went from west of Yuma AZ to San Diego CA.  The first planks were laid Feb. 14th 1915 and finished April 14, 1915.  Crossing the plank road was both an adventure and a trail.  For 10 years the road was in service.  Today only fragments of the plank road remain.

Off to the dunes and checked out vehicles used for riding on them.

What a guy Mike is he even took time to take some pictures of the wild flowers blooming in the desert.

With all the rain the area has had this winter the wild flowers should give us a pretty good show in a few weeks.

On the way back to camp they ran into a car fire on Highway 8.

To keep going with the fire theme we had a small camp fire in the evening.


A perfect ending to a perfect day.
