I stuck Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in here, even though it is in California, as I stopped there overnight.  A-B DSP Links: [1] [2] [3].  I camped overnight in Tamarisk Grove.  There are showers here -- 25 cents per two minutes of solar-heated water.  Talk about luxury!  You also get lots of shade -- compare the campground with the nearby area.

Sonoran desert.

The campground here is almost more of a parking lot for RVs.  It is not quite as bad as Sunset campground in Death Valley, though.

It was kind of a dry year again, not much in the way of flowers, and I was too busy looking at scenery (and driving) to take many pictures.  Ah well, must try again in a wetter year.
