A couple with a home in Borrego Springs had an interest in doing a round-the-Salton-Sea tour with a local, getting introduced to all those funky places the locals know about. I was their natural choice. (They’re also clients…)
The prior couple of days we’d had some rockin high temps – 122 and 1% humidity. But on the day – June 21st, we saw the expected drop in temperature and were blessed with clouds.
Lois enjoying the clouds at the ‘beach’ near my house. Some nice fat cumulus, a little virga and some crepuscular rays.
Doug at my ‘Reflecting Pool’. As it were…..
Compare it with the same scene 10 years ago.
Someone got stuck in Box Canyon. I’m sure this was a Monte Carlo, I used to drive one long ago.
The Albert Frey building that is the North Shore Yacht Club still has a beautiful backdrop.
Lois and Bob were comparing this grotto at Salvation Mountain with some shrines they’ve seen in South East Asia. The same feeling!
The ‘back alley’ at Salvation Mountain is a riot of color.
We found nice shade under the ‘bridge to nowhere’. We stepped out of that shade for the photo. It was about 100 F at this point.
Trailer at Salvation Mountain. Perhaps this was Leonard Knight’s former home.
Next stop was the East Jesus Sculpture Garden. Upcycling at it’s finest.
One of the stops you don’t get on your average tour – the green water lagoon. By now it was 106 F so we declined any further stops that involved getting out of the truck.
