After a fantastic hike among the rocks at the back of Sawtooth campground on Wednesday, it rains for the rest of my stay.
Not all day, never very hard, but the sky remains overcast and and the air is chill. Because of the lack of sunlight I ration my power use and don’t spend much time on the computer. Unable to get out and explore, it’s not an exciting time to blog about, but the plants sure are happy! I’ll be happy for them, this is good news for the drought.
I depart the Lucerne Valley area bright and early (okay, still cloudy so not exactly “bright”) and set a course for Acton, Calif. First I drive north on 247 to Barstow, then get on interstate 15 which swerves southwest through Victorville. Just past Victorville, I exit onto 18 going west which merges with 138 through the small towns of Llano, Pearblossom, and Littlerock. Instead of continuing into Palmdale, I merge onto 14 heading south. This may sound complicated, but it really isn’t a tough drive.
For a while the sun pokes through the clouds, but there are storms brewing the mountains which is where I’m headed. The clouds cover the horizon like a blanket and it’s a race against the clock, will I make it to my destination before the sky opens up?
