2022 Trip Report - What's on the Way to Ocotillo?

Whats on the way to Ocotillo?

By Dave Burdick

On the way to join the Desert Explorers at Octillo,we turned off Interstate 8 onto old highway 80. Along the old highway we came upon the town of Jacumba which was passed by when the new lnterstate was built. To the South of the town there is a massive picket fence… What was it?

We continued east on the old road and under the Interstate. We came to a dead end and the Desert Tower which was built in 1923.

Watch out for the animals guarding the tower. It’s well worth seeing. ~ Dave
