Asked Mom on Christmas if we had any old pics from ABDSP. She directed me toward a large box in the closet and I found these.

This was our first trip out to Anza Borrego in January 1969. Am thinking this is a wash off 78 but not positive.

I like your old pics too. You were a stylish dresser for sure. No pics from the old days from me but my first trip was in 1969 or 1970 after we moved to California. We camped in Bow Willow, in the old part of the campground that has since washed away. I remember climbing all over the boulders going up behind our camp. We hiked up Bow Willow canyon a ways and it was HOT! I remember being somewhat pissed at my step father for making us walk when there were all types of rigs driving up and down the wash. It was shortly after this first trip that he bought a four-wheel drive International Travel-all. That thing was a beast but it went all over Baja and I even took my driving test in it a few years later. Just imagine having to parallel park that monster when you are 16 and taking the test. I passed!

First pic guess is near Whale peak? Looks like you will have to drive all over to match up that pic.smile
First time for me was around 1965 when my Dad drove us thru the area when I was about 7.

We camped regularly from the mid 60's on up and never really took pictures. I wish my parents had!
Here's one in Bow Willow with me and my mom.
