Palm Springs and several other places did have nice dog parks.
Tucker had so much fun and played with so many dogs.
Because of said effects anytime we hit the ocean we have to leash Tucker up and walk him around until the situation takes care of itself.
Not a problem there is a Starbucks a couple miles away and plenty to see along the way.
Like Yoga Van guy!
And of course we also watch some surfers.

There were lots of flowers everywhere.
We just goofed around and checked out the old buildings.
San Diego is also a lot of fun because we get to hangout with our friend Shawn who move here many years ago from Boston.

We've both take the tram before but now the new tram is much nicer.
The entire tram rotates a couple times as you ascend so you get a view in all directrions.
People from Palm Springs who act like they have never seen snow are sleeding and having snowball fights at the top of the tram.
The league here seems to be a little less skilled than the Cape Code summer league.
It may be more of a developmental league for hopeful players.
It was a good way to spend the afternoon either way.

We managed to find a Website for The Wildlife Convervancy which owns a lot of land and allows dogs.

So it costs $40 for up to a 2 week stay or a little more for a long stay. But out in the desert where you camp there is no hookups. Most people are here for the winter and have big setups with Solar and 4x4 toys and compounds.
The town is also full of flea markets which we checked out. There was some interesting stuff and even more interesting people watching.
Eventually we checked out the RV show too and "Solar Bill's" a place many people swear is the best place to get solar installed on your RV.
The best part of the show was "Adult Day Care" which was a beer garden with live music and BBQ.
Nearby there is some good hiking in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge. In the panorama is a hike we did up to a Palm Canyon.
We also saw mountain sheep way up on a cliff as we were hiking and hungout for a while pointing them out to other hikers.
You can bring home what you find within certain limits. And we did find a bunch of good ones, nothing too big but nice clear ones.
Tools are supposed to be forbidden but you can tell people have been digging and breaking with tools.
I brough a hammer but it wasn't really that much help.
Tucker had a good time running around the mountain for the most part but did have a few run-ins with various cactus spines
Overall the free-isn BLM camping is pretty cool, surprisingly we didn't see any signs of people being jerks which is a surprise.
We was kind of a surprise, we stayed 4 nights longer than we had expected.

Generally the experiments was considered a failure.
Anyway it was still pretty amazing science even if they could only grow enough coffee so everyone could have a cup ever few weeks!
Interestingly it was as much a social experiment as it was science experiment. I plan to read this book about how the 8 people locked in for 2 years ended up breaking down into 2 groups of 4 that hated each other. I think two of them ended up getting married.
Had this been done 10 years later it all would have been on TV but this was done before there really even was an Internet.
It was a pretty cool Museum / Zoo.
