Re: Low Desert Cabazon To Blythe this weekend opinions?

Seems like it would have been almost too hot and dry for most desert areas this weekend. It was 80 degrees @ midnight in the high desert with not much wind either where I was at. I did see a live gopher snake and a scute, and 3 DOR of each last night though.
