|I had never thought about it, but as the U.S. Bureau of Land Management is a federal agency it will close all public camping area’s where fees are involved, like the Long Term Visitor Areas in Quartzsite. So I assume that also the Holtville Hot Springs LTVA is closed for campers. We read about it at Barbara’s blog “Me and my dog and my RV” Barbara is in Quartzsite right now and had to go to a 14-day area as she was not admitted to the LTVA. Hosts are in place though but are not giving out permits. Neither is a U.S. flag flying at the entrance. So folks, if you are heading towards an LTVA, make sure you have an alternative. |
I tried to access their website but even that is closed.
Meanwhile life is going moving right along on Campobello Island and in Canada and I escaped boredom this afternoon by finding a few new and unexplored photo opportunities.
A sea of Mountain Ash is contrasting with the blue water of the Narrows.
As I was taking pictures along the upper duck pond, a couple from Pennsylvania joined in. She had a NIKON on a tripod and was eagerly taking in the grand views. It turned out they were quite surprised that nobody else (except me) was around in the Roosevelt Park’s Natural Area. They really enjoyed the solitude of the island.
At Mulholland Point I saw the extremely powerful tidal current rushing by. With their engines running full throttle, two boats were making headway against the current.
Living on a small island it can be a challenge to find new photo angles all the time. Weather conditions are the variable which can provide for new shots of well-known and earlier photographed areas and objects.
It is fun though to look for those opportunities and I’d say it is an educating task as well, as it will help sharpen the senses.
Thanks for stopping by!
