The hiking paths were sandy and after our hikes past the gorgeous fat fishhook barrel cactus and stony outcroppings, we carted tons of desert dust into CC on a daily basis.
We enjoyed daily airshows from the local base who flew by a couple of times a day. Also a crop duster would fly over the local field and drop showers of "whatever it was?"; it was far enough away not to worry about. Also, one of the campers had a battery operated plane that he flew a couple of times a day. Yes, life is simple in the desert.
