Bradshaw Trail

We headed to the desert to celebrate President’s Day weekend. Our venue was near the east end of the Bradshaw Trail, four miles west of Wiley Well, and 12 miles south of Interstate 10, in southeastern California. Two state prisons are located behind our camp site, over the Little Chuckwalla Mountains.

Not only was it President's Day weekend, but it was Valentines Day, uh, weekend.

Matt and Carol are at the top of the hill, replacing our weathered geocache container. The location is northwest of Yuma and experiences some brutal summer temperatures.
