We found the campground (if you can even call it that) and settled in for another night of boondocking. We now knew that our batteries would take us through the night, so we were much more relaxed than when at Rockhound. These primitive sites are so interesting to me because you just find a spot you like and pull in. Since there are no hookups you just face whatever direction you want, park, unlock the door, and you are all set up. In the morning, I worked for a few hours while Troy and the kids hiked to find some petroglyphs in the park. (These are collections of rock etchings made by Native Americans hundreds of years ago.) When they got back, it was a gorgeous morning, so they spent it playing in the rocks making rock people of each other.
After securing everything inside, we jumped back in the truck and headed about 20 miles down the road to Dateland to get gas and a "world famous" date shake. They actually have a grove of date palms and make shakes (among other things) out of the dates. They are so sweet that all 4 of us shared one shake.
