It’s dusty, it’s dirty, and it came back for the 57th time to the desert of California. Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari drew thousands of 4x4 fans as well as off-road vendors to the Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation area for a weekend of family-oriented fun and adventure. Whether it was bonding around the camp circle, enjoying a sunny trail ride, or perusing the show, TDS 2019 had something for everyone.
