Can we cross the middle of the valley or too wet?
I'm sure you're on your way by now ... sorry for the late reply ...
Anyway, the road that goes across the valley at the bottom of Hurricane is [was] dry, as of Sunday - Monday ... [San Diego Creek/Soda Lake/Paradise Drive] ... at Soda Lake Road, after crossing the valley heading west, turn left for KLC campground ... [trun right for Selby]... we found that eveywhere we went was dry last week ...
PS: Hi Mudcat: the Carrizo Plain people call "car camping" setting up anywhere besides the established campgrounds at KLC and Selby ... generally you can camp in the foothills and ridges above the valleys ... It's much easier to meet people at one of the two campgrounds, though ...
