Our Location: Off Ogilby Road, Yuma
The night was quiet and we slept well. We left our spot at the Sonoran Desert National Monument around 8:30 AM. We left due to my discomfort at having no cell service. There is a small stretch of I-8 West in which we have no cell service. It’s about 20 miles in length in the basin between the high points.

Further west along I-8 we stopped at a couple of rest areas on our journey. At one of them I called my dad just tell him that we were back in cell service range. We took our time and enjoyed the views as we travelled.
|More sunrise this morning.|
We crossed into Pacific Time just around 11 AM Mountain Standard Time, which made the time 10 AM PST. So we are now three hours behind Ontario time. The skies were sunny and the temperatures warming as we drove.

While we’ve been to Yuma before we haven’t been in this particular area before. We took California Exit 159 to Ogilby Road. A right at the end of the ramp took us north along Ogilby. According to Google Sidewinder Road is on the left, with American Girl Mine Road on the right. However in reality the sign for Sidewinder Road is on the right side and we didn’t see a sign for American Girl Mine Road.

So in truth, I’m not really sure just where we are other than off of Ogilby Road. So I’ll just leave it at that for now. We are about a mile off of the road on the right. A very big spot with a couple of fire pits. We’ve chosen the second pit. We have views of the mountains and the sand dunes out the door. Not too shabby!!

So there you have it, we’ve moved and are back in cell service. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
