Here are some pictures of that trip, courtesy of Carl. It's about a 7-hour drive the way we went, including the crossing. I think next time coming back I'd cross at San Luis Colorado and save some driving in Mexico. We crossed at Algodones. (Google map it).
On our way:
Some desert scenery:
A little green is pretty welcome after all that brown.
It gets quite agricultural after Rio Colorado. Pretty but the roads are difficult.
A little farm:
And then in California we went into the mountains- incredible boulder-like scenery.
We climbed to over 4000 feet, and the wind was something else. Hence the wind farm. What do they say about that? "Your area is eligible for a wind farm if the wind has ever made you feel like you want to actually kill someone."
Carl's proud of this one, justifiably since all these shots were from a moving car. Me stop? No way.
The day after the party, while Jamie slept, we went to Balboa park. It is just beautiful, with a lot of museums. Here's a theatre.
Some of the nice architecture:
More architecture...I'm telling you, it was so beautiful there!
We don't know what these buildings are called...
The restaurant where we had a delicious lunch. (Prado)
The Art gallery. We spent a couple of hours in here.We also went to the Natural History Museum.

Heading home.Wait, I'm pointing the same way!
Thanks to Lorena and her family and Jamie for a wonderful time!
Here's just one more. Here's me before, me in the middle, and after's going to have to wait a few months:
