When the temperatures start to dip in the winter time, my thoughts turn to the warm, dry heat of the southern California deserts. This year I wintered over in the famous (or infamous) Slab City, just east of Niland, CA on the eastern side of the Salton Sea. There is plenty of room for everyone and "Snowbirds" from cold, snowy states arrive to stretch their feathers and enjoy days in the 70's and 80's. The area has several club houses, a church, two music venues, an internet cafe, a library, pet cemetary and a couple of "restaurants", though I wasn't brave enough to dine in one. Here are a few pictures from the area.
As you leave Yuma, AZ heading north on I95 toward Quartzite, the Yuma Proving Grounds will be on your left and offer a nice rest stop with tanks and guns from earlier wars. All the photos in this post were process with nothing more than Picasa 3 (a Google product that is completely free to use). The photos speak for themselves.
This is my seventh year posting to this blog! Can you believe it? I want to thank each of you for taking a moment out of your day to read my posts. I've had more than 13,500 page views by readers in 37 countries around the world. It's fun to think of folks living in places so different than mine, checking out my blog.
Take the time to explore the world around you. You don't need to go far, just let the "travel spirit" move you. See you on the road less traveled.
