Day 904: Borrego Springs, Day 2

This morning I drove a mile or so to the empty land across from Peg Leg and took off on flight #75, flying east towards Font’s Point.  Looking left, I could see our dispersed camping area.  Our RV is the dark one along the right edge of the camping area:

Continuing east, I encountered the badlands:

After breakfast, we drove over to the SeaView fruit stand, where local citrus can be purchased for sixty cents a pound:

While the kids looked for books at the library, I asked about the library’s 3D printer.  The library received the printer as part of a grant, and it’s free to use.  I looked through the object library and found this GoPro mount for the Syma X8C.  This mount will allow us to mount my GoPro camera onto M’s quadcopter.  The librarian helped me get started:

After a little less than 30 minutes, the part was ready:

I removed it from the machine and we were ready to go:

From the library, we drove out to “The Slot”.  To see photos from our visit two years ago, see Day 182:

Like last time, we really hoped that spire would hold up long enough for us to get by:

After our hike though The Slot, we drove over to the visitor center for the Ocotillo Wells State Vehicle Recreation Area, which is adjacent to Anza Borrego State Park.  We laughed at this sign:

When we returned home, we installed the GoPro mount we had printed at the library:

We attached the camera to the mount.  We will test it tomorrow:
