Christmas Eve the weather in Borrego Springs was cloudy and windy so Bob and I decided to go across the mountains again to geocache. Bob found a forest service road with many, many caches along it. As we drove up the mountain we saw a complete rainbow.
Christmas Day we talked to all our family and wished everyone Merry Christmas. Then Bob and I decided to invite Butch to go hiking again. This time to the other slot canyon near the trail to Calcite Mine. This slot canyon was accessible--barely! The rock formations were awesome as we made out way through the slot.
The hike was pretty much uneventful, but full of great sights until we came to another one of those big climbs. This one was easier than the first thank heavens. We continued on marveling at the way these small rocks looked like they were set in cement in the sides of the canyon walls.
Thursday we didn't do much as we found out that our son-in-law's mother lost her battle with cancer. She fought valiantly for over a year. I know she will be missed by all who knew her.
Friday will be moving day. Our time at Borrego Springs is up, but it is on our list of places to return as there are twice as many more hikes waiting for us than what we have already done.
