Went to Anza Borrego State Park a few weeks back, it is my go to desert for the past 30+ years. Stayed in Blair Valley, which has some elevation, keeping the daytime temps in the low 90's. The dog is my best camping buddy, a 12 year old American Foxhound named Hazel.

Nice trip report and photos of Anza Borrego State Park. That place is definitely on our bucket list to stay at during the winter months sometime in the near future.

Very nice! I like your flag and flagpole mount. Something about camping in the desert that feels strange to me. Glad you had fun. I think I want to try it someday. Vic

Trying to grasp Anza in July only reaching a high of low 90's. Must be higher than I thought.

Vic, you should make a desert pilgrimage someday. Anza, Mojave National Preserve, Death Valley, etc..

Very Nice! I thought I was the only one crazy enough to go out there in the summer [emoticon] I bet you had the place to yourself! Have you tried to visit the mud caves in summer?

You know I once saw a Tiger out in Coachwhip Canyon many years ago. I've wanted one ever since. I wonder if that was you?

I have a 2000 watt inverter that I run two power strips off of, one to the bedroom area and one over the kitchen. The microwave is rated at 900 watts and runs just fine.

I only brought the generator along to test out my new Coleman Mach 8 AC and my new front hitch generator mount. All worked great!
