A Quick Camping Trip to Anza Borrego

My camping trip to Anza-Borrego State Park was cut short because of strong winds. In the three days, I only found two Geocaches, but I got some great pictures of the moonset on both mornings, and took a few more pictures on the drive home.

The first morning, I woke up very early and looked out the little "window" in my tent to see the full moon hanging low in the western sky. I got up, grabbed the camera, and took off to try to capture the scene.

These old stone outhouses were a surprise to see as I worked my way back to our Yaqui Well campsite after taking pictures of the setting moon.

I'm actually surprised this picture came out as sharp as it did. The wind was blowing so hard, I didn't think I could hold the camera steady enough to get a good picture.

This is the closed and locked gate to the not-yet-finished Desert Museum where T.R. Violin has a cache that turned out to be my 1200th found cache.

Even if I had tried to plan it, I do not think I could have gotten this picture. It was taken through the windshield of my car as I drove past the enormous wind generators on westbound Interstate 8.
