Borderland Overland: Part V

Dusty and tired, we made camp at Parker Canyon Lake. There we met up with Brad (4Runner) and Ace (FJ Cruiser); they were lounging with beer in hand when we arrived. That evening we gathered around John’s Syncro and told the stories of that day like we had gone to the edge of the earth. In our minds we had, we had crammed more adventure into one day than most do in 1,000 miles. It was funny to think that a day earlier we were all strangers—we were now laughing and insulting each other like best of friends. As beers were sipped and the tales got taller, the sun faded away and the starry sky emerged. And with that, an epic day came to a close.
