Caching to Cali

My mom and I drove to California early this morning to attend a family reunion that we call “Sisters.” My mother, her two sisters and all the family of each of the three sisters always tries to get together right around this time of year. The three sisters always attend and the rest of us can be hit or miss… based on our schedules and travel funds Winking smile.

Anyway, I suggested we cache our way to Cali and my mom was game.
Our first stop was a virtual in Quartzsite, Arizona.

It was the Tomb of Haidji Ali aka “Hi Jolly.”

The last camp of Hi Jolly, born somewhere in Syria about 1828 / Died at Quartzsite December 16, 1902 / Came to this country February 10, 1856 / Cameldriver - packer - scout - over thirty years a faithful aid to the U.S. government. Arizona Highway Department, 1935. (More info on Hi Jolly).
After farting around a bit in Quartzsite we hopped the border into California. Or first stop was the Blythe Airport/old army base - where we almost missed this close to “illegal” geocache. Though it isn’t truly buried, it is submerged. A little “iffy” in my mind… but I’ll let it slide for a smiley!

There was one last cache that seemed interesting and I wanted to grab before we concluded our caching portion of the trip….
