Weekend with Aletha & Marvin Patchen by David Kier

February 19 & 20, 2005...

Elizabeth and I were invited to the desert home of Marvin and Aletha Patchen, authors of 'Baja Adventures...' and 'Baja Outpost'.

Their 1981 'Adventures' book was always a favorite and inspired me on my Baja adventures!

Based on log book entries from guests at their Baja desert cabin, 'Baja Outpost' was published by Sunbelt in 2003.

The Anza-Borrego Desert was blooming with higher than normal rainfall, this year!

Elizabeth is enjoying the smell of the flowers...
