The M&G started off with my son Adam and I arriving in Borrego Springs at 4pm on Friday at practically the same time as "The Adventure Duo" and Brent. I was supposed to meet Mike (MKfour) but unfortunately he got caught up in the 91 traffic. We decided to head straight out to camp and that I return later to pick up Mike. The recent rains have made things a little more challenging than they were last fall when I first made this trip. The rock gardens were a little challenging for the rigs with trailers, but they made it without any problems. About 3/4 of the way to camp I made a u turn and headed back to Borrego Springs to catch up with Mike. The return trip was interesting as it was getting pretty dark as the pavement turned to dirt and this was my first experience wheeling in the dark. My recently installed HID low beams were a huge help. By the time we reached camp, the others were just settling in at the camp fire after enjoying a good tritip bbqed by Dave. There was a nice big end piece still on the grill with my name on it, thanks Dave! Then, came dessert, Brent's apple cobbler, OMG what a treat! Thanks Brent. The fire burned strong well after midnight while we enjoyed beers, wine and good campfire chat. Woke up early next morning to the sounds of bids chirping around camp - much nicer than the crowing roosters or barking dogs in my neighborhood. Mike had risen early to make a wonderful breakfast for everyone, scambled eggs, maple glazed sausage, french toast, and OJ. Thanks Mike! It was good fuel for what we had planned ahead - the Waterfall Hike. After the food had settled, Dave, Brent, Mike, Adam, and I ventured off to hike the canyon in search of the waterfalls we have heard about. We found the first one rather quickly and then pushed forward to find the second one higher up in the palm grove. The heat was starting to get intense and with water running out Dave, Mike and Adam decided to return back to camp. Brent and I decided to keep going and are glad we did as it was very rewarding to make it to the palm grove and second waterfall. We couldn't believe we were still in the desert, it was cool and shady and with the sound of the water falling and the birds chirping, it seemed as though we were in a rain forest somewhere. We hiked back down to camp, ate lunch, and napped a bit. With the afternnon upon us, I started packing up for the return trip home. Mike decided to follow me and Adam out with a little detour to Coyote Canyon and back. As we reached the exit of the third crossing, we ran into a couple of 80s, Guilitto and Ulysses. Nice to meet you guys. Mike and I hit town and aired back up at the gas staion and went our separate ways. Again, I want to say it was great meeting everyone and finally putting some faces to the names here on the forum. Looking forward to the next one!
