Free camping all month!
December finds us camped in the dispersed camping area known as Clark Dry Lake (private, free, no time limit) in the Anza Borrego Desert near Borrego Springs, southern California. We stay at Clark Dry Lake for a total of 25 days.
On December 22 we set up camp at Ogilby Road dispersed camping area (private, free, no time limit), about 13 miles west of Yuma, Arizona. Although I intend to stay at Ogilby for only a week or so, I extend this camp into the new year because of the milder temperatures compared to other parts of the Southwest.
