Re: The Brown Crown

Took BC on a road trip this past weekend to the California desert and onto the Colorado River to visit some friends

A short break on old US Route 66 in Newberry Springs





BC at a RV campground in Newberry Springs, CA



At my friend's home on the Colorado River...glad BC has good spring brakes





Sunset on the River


My dogs Yoda and Bob enjoying the coforts of BC

BC, small world. We stopped both coming and going at Newberry Springs this past weekend on our trip to Lake Mead! Did you'all get the high winds Saturday night like we did? It taught us a thing or two--like roll up the awning at night just in case Jack
