Quartzsite January 20 & 26 2011 By Jeannie Jacobs

Jim and Jeannie Jacobs arrived on 1/17 and picked an open area to camp that  would accomadate 10 units or more. Dick and Connie Taylor with Sassie arrived on  the 19th, as well as Doug and Nancy Nunn with Tyler, Max and Kiva, and Steve and  Wendy Mathisen with Daisy. On 1/20, Dan and Jan Messersmith with Buddy arrived. On 1/21, Carl and Nancy Noah and Mal  and Jean Roode arrived. Bob and Shirley Bolin arrived. Charles and Mary Hughes  arrived on the 23rd. Our first trip led by Dick was to Castle Rock Dome with Dan as sweep. Homer  Weeks and Lou Valencia drove in from Blythe and joined us that day. We drove  approximately 116 miles, and was Delighted with everything we saw. There was a  nice stop at the visitor area with maps of the area. We toured the Castle Dome  Miners Museum, which turned out to be a wonderful experience. The Buildings were  kept up very well with a lot of work and refurbishing/or possibly moved in.  There Was tons of memorabilia to see, and all well preserved. It was well worth  the stop. Dick and Connie picked a really nice lunch spot, and we were being  watched by a big horn sheep. Jim also picked out A really big ground  squirrel????? We then traveled back to camp with some spectacular scenery along  the way.
