Thanksgiving in the Desert

For Thanksgiving, I met up with the WINs in Borrego Springs. This is the 20th year that they have had their Thanksgiving celebration here.

Thanksgiving was nice and warm, unlike some of the years we've been here. There was enough food for Thanksgiving, leftovers on Friday, and soup on Saturday.

One day we went on a 4-wheel drive trip through Split Mountain Canyon.

There were some unique geological features along the way.

At one point we stopped to hike up to the Wind Caves. It was very steep...

But the caves were really interesting.

And then on Sunday, Corrie, Brian and my grandkids, Mara and Jonathan, came to visit and look at the metal sculptures in the area.

They had been here 3 years ago, and wanted to see several of them again, including the largest, the giant Serpent.

It's back end is all the way across the road.

Mara kept Willy's Jeep from running over poor Jonathan.

But this is the one they wanted to see the most - they wanted to dance with the Velociraptors!

Do you think they take after their Grandma?


  1. The collection of sculptures continues to grow! The ant looks pretty fun, have not seen it yet. The grand-kids are certainly having fun dancing!

  2. Nice to see it all again. Thanks Diana.

  3. Old rusty stuff - yep just like Grandma. So much fun.

  4. Your grandkids are so cute!! Love the rusty sculptures. Some day I want to see them... :)

  5. I don't remember seeing you dance with a dinosaur. Unless, of course he was one of those WINS... :cD

  6. yes ! lets see they like to dance ! ha
